Hi guys, Its been a stressful year and it's nice to have something to look forward too right? I'd like to start dreaming about an overseas trip to hunt for fossils and I'd like to collect something that is very hard to come by in New Zealand and Australia: Megateeth! I'd be happy with any teeth in the meg lineage. I'm a fan of auriculatus, angustidens, chubutensis and megalodon. They can be found here, but there are no sites where they could be called common. I hunted for many years in New Zealand and I have found one complete angustidens and a few fragments. So I wonder if I was flying from Australia or New Zealand, where would be the best sites to hunt? I guess if I am flying all that way I could visit a few sites and make a trip of it! I don't have a dive certificate, I wouldn't rule it out, but if there are land sites or beach sites then I'd be happy with that too. I know there are guided hunts for diving, but what about land sites? Shark tooth Hill would be on my list and easy to fly to from Australia, but I think megs are rare there. Really appreciate your time if you can respond to this thread When, I'm saying when this happens, I will of course post a follow up about my trip on here!
Just got back from 7 days of diving in 9 days offshore in Wilmington NC. It was a 2 or 3 day trip dependng on the weather but I kept saying I will stay for one more day. If you really want to go find a lot of teeth that is the way to go. I usually go with WBDiving but they were full for most of the week so I could only go with them two days. I went with JetLag for four days and Carolina Beach SCUBA one day and I can not say a bad thing about any of them. I highly recommend it for experienced deep divers. The vis was 30 feet plus. I thought it was great but everyone else was unimpressed with the vis. You really have to watch your time at 105 feet with Meg teeth laying around because it is really easy to overstay your welcome. These are some of the teeth I found. Like everything it takes a few trips to get used to the diving but it is worth it. So much fun.
