  1. S.C. shark tooth hunting

    Hi! I was introduced to shark tooth hunting on the beach about 15 years ago by my MIL. It has become my favorite past time while at the beach. We recently purchased a home in Georgetown, SC, and I have heard there are great spots to hunt in Summerville, SC and surrounding areas of Charleston. How do i get started with where to go? I have never searched in creeks or riverbeds, but I would love to spend a day searching. Any maps or advice for me on where to start or go? Thanks!
  2. My son and I were taking advantage of the north westerly winds blowing the water out of the Neuse River and exposing more shoreline. My 7 year old found the lighter colored tooth and I found the darker (black) teeth all within 18” of each other along with the other fossilized bones. May 8th, 2020. I just signed up for this forum and would like to send more photos of the other bones.
  3. Is this a Dino tooth?

    Please tell me if you think this may be a fossils tooth of a sea creature? It was found at Walton in the Naze UK
  4. Hi everyone, I found this stunning piece online and am very keen to get it as my first real quality piece. My only concern is that is the quality too good to be true? I really do hope it's all it's said to be though! Seller reported no restoration or repairs done. Appreciate any thoughts on this! Thanks in advance! Cheers!
  5. I am new to collecting meg teeth so I hope my question is not “dumb.” Are the tooth cusps on a C. chubutensis vestigial structures from the earlier three pronged tooth like on O. obliquus? I read a physics article about how the megs tooth serration evolves from the smaller prong teeth getting sharks caught on larger prey causing them damage. Did the improved serration as the sharks evolved to be larger lead adult C. megladon adults not having cusps at all? I hope the question makes sense.
  6. Shark tooth?

  7. Help with Megladon Teeth ID

    My son received these teeth from an uncle as a gift. Unfortunately we are unable to contact him for any further information about them. Any help with an ID on them or perhaps an estimated value (if that's allowed here) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and effort! If better pictures are needed please advise. Tooth 1: (first 5 pics) Width=12.7cm and length=16.83cm Tooth 2: (pics 6-9) Width=8.9cm and length=10.8cm Tooth 3: (last 4 pics) Width=5cm and length= 7.62cm
  8. Petrified wood or something else?

    Found this in the Peace River. In the pictures it looks like a wet piece of wood. It’s definitely fossilized. I’m thinking petrified wood but the color doesn’t look like any prices I’ve seen before? Also, what type of sharks are the last two teeth. I think one of them might be a small meg. If it is, it’s my first meg!!!!
  9. Anyone Hunting the East Coast?

    Hey guys, just moved to Wilmington NC from Ohio a few weeks ago. I've always loved fossils and metal detecting but I went on my first shark tooth hunt with my wife and found 27 teeth plus a nice great white tooth. I've been hooked ever since. Is there any groups or clubs for fossil hunting in Wilmington?
  10. Hey! New member here wondering if anyone would be interested in getting a group together for the weekend to do some creek hunting for megs, angies, whites, or other fossils. Message me if you're interested and know the area better than I (I'm from the upstate).
  11. Is this tooth real, I bought it from a mineral and fossil shop in Breckenridge Colorado. Would be much appreciated thx!
  12. Is this a baby meg tooth?

    I found this tooth at point a dam, is it a baby meg? I really can’t tell..
  13. My wifes birthday is on Monday so trying to surprise her with a 3-4 day weekend trip. Looking for locations in the southeast. Can go as far down as ft. Lauderdale area or top of nc on the north side. We have been to Edisto and Summerville areas before and unfortuantely just havent gotten on top of any good spots. She really wants a whole Meg tooth or nice Angustiden tooth as well, were used to mainly finding fragments in the Savannah area. I wouldnt mind that but would love to add some more bones/and or fragments to our collection as well. I do have a small john boat with a 4 horse outboard this year so have a lot more accessibility as far as the Edisto river goes if thats what I decide on. Looking for a trip that will hopefully not break the bank, but be productive and most of all be a nice relaxing trip where I can spend some quality time hunting with my wife!. if anyone has any suggestions please send em my way! We can use all the help we can get haha.
  14. My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  15. Hi! I was hoping I could get some advice on my recent finds at Wrightsville Beach, NC. Dredging recently finished and the last few days were awesome! Last year I found a very nice Mastodon and we found 3 items that look very similar but not in great condition. I found 2 very large Megs but they are in bad shape. There are some unknowns that we just can't identify and was hoping for TFF's expertise. I can attach more pics of other angles but just going to attach the bare minimum right now.
  16. Hello everyone! His is my first post on here. My name is Hayley and I’m located in Daytona Beach, Florida. The past two weekends, we made trips to Brownville and Wauchula Florida to hunt the Peace River. On the 18, we found a small meg tooth on the last scoop of the day, along with lots of other teeth and bone fragments. On yesterday’s trip, I found some larger teeth and a completely in-tact (what looked to be a sand dollar) at the last place we stopped at. I will post a picture of it tomorrow because it’s sittig on my desk at work. Anyway, it’s really enjoyable and the conditions are very favorable right now. We have set up a trip to visit again next weekend, and are looking for some fellow hunters who are interested in tagging along. I really want to get on some big meg teeth, and have been scouting out a few decent and promising locations. We have a kayak that we use to get up and down the river. Is anyone interested in meeting up next weekend to hunt?
  17. FL River Hunting Feb 22 2018

    Got in a few hours of digging today and popped a few keepers out. One day I'm going to find a nice complete Meg that size.
  18. megladon, finally!

    I finally found an entire megladon tooth. I have hundreds of fragladons and was beginning to wonder if I would ever find one. It is not huge but it is two colors and in perfect condition. Sorry about the crappy pics but my laptop is all I have to work with. I found it laying right on top where flood waters had receded. It made my day! Also found a large vert in perfect shape. And a monster gator tooth, that is a nickle I am holding against the base.
  19. Hello everyone! I found a tooth at a site known for its Miocene teeth that I'm having trouble identifying...can you all take a look at this picture and tell me if this tooth is a posterior megladon tooth like the one pictured next to it? Thanks in advance! I don't think it's a hammerhead tooth, but I could be wrong.
  20. Hello and thank you, My 8 year old daughter seems to have found a possible Megladon tooth in Lake Huron. If I am correct it seems to be worn down considerably. Any comments are welcome. I wet the pronounced ridges for camera view. Thank you Mike
  21. Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible shells - but I made it, grabbed a very nice C. madisonius with some little barnacles atop of it. As I'm climbing down I spot something embedded in the rock/hardened clay and got so excited I literally laughed out loud. MEGLADON TOOTH! -This I was not expecting, but welcomed! I pried it out, really neat color and sadly chipped away about a third - but still in good condition and a promising sign as I looked around and also found two beautiful little great whites almost pearly white! Such unique colored teeth for this part of eastern NC as normally my finds, like GMR, are darker grays and blacks and then you have the aurora teeth and hour east that these appeared more like in color but still different. I would love to know the minerals responsible for this coloration here. Anyhow, I returned with my Good digging partner, Rick, Sunday and we found a few more things that were alright. More to explore - more to come I'm sure!
  22. March 10, 2017 Myakka

    So with much reading of the helpful info here on TFF, I was able to put some of the knowledge into practice and finally found a whole megladon! Thank all you contributors very much, (esp ShellSeeker & Sacha for your reports & photos). Myakka is a bit closer to me than Peace River but I can see several reasons why this river is not as inviting. Much more wild life (3 Snakes & 1 gator), the river has drastic depth transitions (knee deep to over your head in 6"), it is usually turbid (tidal effects?). Much of the fossil material has become embedded in the limestone so they aren't as pristine. Below is about 6 hours total effort (about 3 hours heavy digging). Thank you TFF! Calvin
  23. Hi i bought a megladon tooth from a guy for $100. thought i was getting a good deal due to the high cost of megladon teeth but the more i look online the more i keep thinking it might be fake. I think its real because of the pebbles and dirt stuck in between the cracks and the weight is good but im not 100% on it. Not sure if i over paid or if I got a good deal, any info helps thanks. bought it in santa barbara if that makes a difference.
  24. Shark Tooth?

    Hello, I found this item at Shark tooth beach on Jekyll Island, GA. I am not sure if this is a tooth or not. I would appreciate any input from the members of this forum. Thank you.
  25. Peruvian Expedition

    Hello, I am interested in going to Peru to look at carnivourous fossils in the Talara tar pits and to look at shark and whale fossils in the Ica region. However, I am currently an American citizen. How can I go to Peru and do these things? Thank you.
