  1. In between this trip report and the last, I have moved from Houston to Columbia, where I am studying biology at the University of South Carolina, so now I have the opportunitiy to take day trips down to Charleston and Summerville to go fossil hunting, which I am very much looking forwards to doing some more of sometime soon. I made my first trip since moving in on Saturday afternoon to a little creek in Summerville I last hit roughly two and a half months ago. You can see the fruits of that particular trip here: Now, I'm pretty satisfied with the results of this trip, but something important to take away from this, especially for those of you interested in hunting the Summerville area, is that I had both my younger brothers in tow for my July trip to the same creek, and even after 2.5 months and a hurricane, I'm not even getting a sixth of what we pulled out of that creek in July. I hope this illustrates to you just how slowly these Summerville creeks replenish. As has been said many times, if you're traveling to SC to find fossils, your best bet for a good experience is going to be just paying the money to go on a guided fossiling trip with a company like Charleston Fossil Adventures, Palmetto Fossil Excursions, or Charleston Outdoor Adventures. On this trip I sifted gravel for most of the smaller teeth, and the big stuff I found looking through the gravel banks. I really like the colors on that beat up angustidens I found, and that vert is the largest shark vert I've found. I also got a nice Hemipristis lower and a nice bull shark tooth. I'm looking at heading down to Charleston in the next week or two, so expect a post about that sometime soon.
  2. Alopias Palatasi?

    Hey, I saw this tooth and I’m considering asking if they’ll trade it to me... first I want to know, is it a palatasi, if it is I’ll ask, but before I ask I want to know. It was found in SC and looks to be about an inch. TIA! @digit @Harry Pristis @MarcoSr
  3. Shark tooth with matrix?

    Hey, I was wondering what is attached to the root of this tooth... it’s not root, and it’s weird placement for matrix, could it be a little bit of the jaw still attached, like cartilage? I’m pretty sure it’s Carcharhinus, but if anyone could confirm, I’d really appreciate it! TIA!
  4. Pathological? Shark teeth

    Hey, I've got this meg that I think could be pathological, but I’m not sure. Here are a couple pics.
  5. Unknown shark tooth?

    Hi, I found this tooth in South Carolina earlier this summer and was wondering what it was, right now I’m thinking desori or bene(I’m hoping its a benedini, but I don’t know how realistic that is)
  6. Unknown SC tooth

    Hi, I found this tooth in Summerville, SC, and was wondering what you guys thought it was, I thought it was a desori, but I want to make sure. TIA
  7. Summerville SC Land Site

    Let's say I've theoretically found an active construction site in Summerville, South Carolina that I would like to go fossiling in. How would I get permission to go and poke around there? What days of the week would nobody be working there? Also, what would be the best way to begin looking for teeth at a land site? I have some experience in the Summerville creeks, but have no clue where to start here. I would really appreciate some input from those of you who happen to be knowledgable about this kind of thing.
  8. Got a pretty decent haul out of Summerville on Tuesday, finally found a creek spot that was halfway decent. Lots of little broken Meg chunks, but the big tooth remains elusive. I did find a nice angustidens, though, which is in excellent shape for a creek tooth of that size. I put the specimens I could use some help identifying in the upper right hand corner of the first picture. I know the top two are mammal teeth of some sort, pretty sure the right one is either horse or camel, but I have no clue about the one on the left. Below them are what I assume is the remains of some sort of coral, and on the bottom is a small mystery tooth in matrix and a strange piece of fossilized something. I would really appreciate it if any of yall could let me know what some of this stuff is. I plan on heading back to this site tomorrow or the next day because we just had a decent storm blow through, so stay tuned!
  9. Unknown vertebra from SC

    Hi all, took a trip to Hilton Head island, SC this year. No luck for shark teeth - but I did dredge this guy up. Doesn’t look like a shark vert. It’s around 1/2 inch long. Any ideas? My apologies for the poor pictures.
  10. Driftwood Beach Mammal Fossil

    What is this fossil? Chapstick for scale. Found on Rat Island Park in Folly Beach, SC.
  11. Benedini or Mako?

    Hello all! I am hoping someone can give me a definitive answer about this tooth I found. Is this a Benedini or a Mako? Fyi, its less than a tenth of an inch from being 3 inches.
  12. Okay, I posted this yesterday and I’m not sure if it was that it was too long winded, in the wrong spot, or both. So, I will attempt to boil it down. There was a post on this topic in 2011 but I feel like there’s certainly more knowledge on this now. 1. What formations are megalodon teeth coming from? The plausible ones are the Parachucla (22ma), Marks Head (18ma), and Goose Creek Lime (3.5ma), all within the umbrella Hawthorn formation. The CofC Museum lists almost every specimen as coming from the Goose Creek Lime, yet the hottest spots at best have the Raysor formation(2.5ma) exposed. 2. Are said spots only good underwater where the river has cut through to the former three? 3. Is material between the Marks Head and Goose Creek era extant in any areas? People have suggested that the size of some teeth would place them in the middle of these two time periods, unless there’s reason to believe they’re reworked. 4. Wanting to see pictures of the formations mentioned (excluding Marks Head which is only subsurface), in addition the Wando and Chandler Bridge formations if anyone has pictures lying around.
  13. Tooth

    Reeled this is 7-8 years ago out of the broad river in Beaufort, SC about 7 miles inland from the port royal sound.
  14. Hey everyone. I have recently gotten my family into the study of paleontology, but so far, we've only bought fossils online. i.e fossilera. For spring break planning on going Sharks teeth hunting in Summerville South Carolina and are looking for good spots to find sharks teeth and other things. Does anyone here have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
  15. Found in a land spot not too far from North Charleston. Only chunks but I’m still happy with them. Wondering if this is a meg tooth or another shark, also wondering if it’s possible age based on size. Serration on the side.
  16. These were found river and creek side in Charleston, SC. I believe the first three are teeth and the last two are bones. I’m suspecting mammal on most if not all, I’ll put my guesses with them. 1. Not sure what these are from but appears to be a jawbone with teeth if I had to guess. 4cm x 2cm 2. The closest thing I can place this to is a tapir, but I’m not sure which end attached to the root and which was the chewing surface. I think the blurrier photo (#2) may show the chewing surface at top left. May not be a tooth at all but it really looks like it to me. 4cm x 2cm continued in next post due to image sizing

  18. Egg fossil ID?

    Weighs 16.5grams found myrtle beach, SC
  19. I am new at fossil hunting and need so help with formations and how deep formations are. I have a piece of land in Patrick county Chesterfield, SC. The property is 4.6 acres I would like to fossil hunt it and also dig a little. But curious as to how far I would have to go to find anything in this area. Thank you.
  20. Shark tooth?

  21. On Friday I went on a guided trip fossil hunting on Morris Island through Charleston Outdoor Adventures, a chartered trip and rental company operating on Bowens Island. I must say I was thoroughly impressed with the operation as a whole. Their guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and I would highly recommend their service to anyone looking for a guided adventure in the Charleston Area. Anyways, we departed Bowens Island on a large Carolina Skiff for a 20 minute zip through the salt marsh before landing on the northern end of Morris Island. I remember that everyone slowed down looking for shark's teeth, but the guides kept up the pace because they knew we wouldn't find anything yet! But as we approached the jetty rounding the curve of the island, I began to see the familiar triangular shapes of teeth. One guide led the pack, while the other brought up the rear. The smaller kids would stick close to them because they'd circle any tooth they saw with the broom handles each of them carried. I typically stuck near the back of the group just because I moved slower than most of the rest of the group because I was looking for fossils, which I certainly found in abundance. Sometimes it surprised me how large of teeth had been walked past by 15-odd people already. Interestingly, unlike some of the fossiling sites along Charleston's coasts, the teeth here were not deposited as a result of beach renourishment with dredge material, but rather they were eroding out of some small cliffs further down the beach. As we got closer and closer to it, we'd find larger and larger teeth. One of the guides told me a story about how one of his friends had found 4 associated shark vertebrae in the cliff face. I found myself a nice angustidens or two, a partial porpoise tooth, and some larger but beat up teeth. Both of my little brothers had a great time and found some great teeth, and overall this was a great experience.
  22. Meant to post this days ago, but accidentally left it unfinished. Whoops. Anyways, on Sunday I took a trip to Northbridge Park on the Ashley River. While definitely enjoyable, due to a nice breeze, a reasonable temperature, and an excellent view, based on my experience I must say that I would not recommend fossil hunting. Teeth were few and far between. However, I might try coming back after a decent storm. For those interested in an easy way to have a good experience fossil hunting in the Charleston area, I would recommend either going on a guided trip or trying the state park end of Folly, which I have heard encouraging things about.
  23. I had scoped out a few potential fossiling sites in the Summerville area with the help of Google maps, and finally got the chance to check them out on Saturday. While I still couldn't tell you where to find huge teeth in Summerville, I can certainly tell you where you won't now. However, I did find a few promising spots that will require further investigation. Out of the 4 or so new spots I checked out, only two held even the smallest tooth. I also visited an old favorite spot and did alright there. Here are the results from this trip. I've also got some unknown specimens that I have included a separate picture of. I you have any idea what any of these are, I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Thanks! - Shoe
  24. Myrtle Beach

    Hi all. Anyone know of or heard about any inland sites to search in the Grand Strand area of SC coast. I know of good sites farther south in Charleston and Summerville and such. Trying to figure out if there are any places to dig and sift right near Myrtle Beach. In looking at a map it seems like there should be some Pleistocene era fossils around but with my limited knowledge I’m not sure where or how deep a layer might be. The Little River is near by but not sure if it’s a candidate. Trying to find somewhere to search besides just the beach. Thanks for any thoughts or ideas.
  25. Whale Tooth? Tybee Island South Carolina

    I found this tooth last year, and finally decided I wanted to find out what it was. My guide told me it was a tusk from a saber toothed tiger? But I think it more strongly resembles a whale tooth. Found on Tybee Island South Carolina
