Has been about 38 F (~4 C) or less since Sat morning and I was getting cabin fever. The tides are running high for the beaches, east wind blowing in the water. So I decided to go to the creek in pouring cold rain (45F, 7C); the creek was icy cold. Was probably stupid, it was difficult to work some new spots in water high over my ankles and both waterproof shoes eventually filled with water. Both quality and quantity of teeth were low. However I was lucky and found TWO nice cow shark teeth (without roots), a small mako (no serrations) along with the usual sand shark spikes and some small gray shark teeth. No angel shark and few drum teeth? Hopefully will turn up when the water quiets down.
Hi, I found this awesome sand shark tooth on Indian Rocks beach, west coast of Florida. Usually the fossilized teeth I find in the Venice area are black and very worn and broken. It has a light blue gray color and a light brown root. It's the best looking tooth I ever found and was wondering if it is modern or fossil? Also if it is fossilized can you tell if it is an extinct sand shark tooth? Thanks!
I went back to Douglas Point on Sunday, 8/13/17. A beautiful, sunny Maryland day. If you have never hiked this trail before, use bug spray & carry a stick to clear spider webs. I usually go around them when I can, but not everyone wants to go off the trail, so be prepared. I found around 10 teeth in 2 hours, including the ones in the photo. I do not know what species the tooth in the middle is from. Overall, good hunting. Didn't have to dig for any of the teeth this time, just worked the shoreline. The long tooth in the photo is my longest so far & the one in the middle is the widest so far. I did not find any other fossils or questionable items this time, just teeth. I hope to go back again this upcoming Sunday.
Working in Singapore the last six months, I was eager to look for teeth in my favorite places. Unfortunately, the best holes had silted in with sand and black decaying leaves and it took a lot of digging and screening. Didn't find anything spectacular, just lots of small teeth. One might be a sand shark symphyseal, small with a large almost rectangular root. Also a squirrel/rat tooth but not black and shiny like the shark teeth (put pictures under ID help). A start anyway.
