  1. Egg fossil ID?

    Weighs 16.5grams found myrtle beach, SC
  2. 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.
  3. Shark tooth?

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Upcoming Trip to Summerville

    Hello friends! I am going on a trip to Summerville to go find some fossils! The problem is that I had no idea where to look.

  12. Mammal Tooth

    Found this tooth/tusk in South Carolina off the coast of Tybee Island. We went with a guide and she said it was the tooth of a Jaguar, but she said to check on here to be sure!I think it looks like a whale tooth but it is much thicker than many I have seen.

  15. A couple shark teeth from Charleston, SC

    I'm new here, hi! I've got a few teeth from around Charleston, SC that I'm unsure about. These I'm pretty sure are Angustidens, but I just wanted to make sure. These are not very good quality pictures, but it's the best I've got (father sent them to me). Some kind of whaler species? My guess for this is Great White, but it's very narrow so I wasn't sure. Thanks for the help!

    Hello everyone! Yesterday I went hunting at Folly in South Carolina, and as per expected I found several bull shark and sand tiger shark teeth, as well as pieces of bone. However, I found something I wasn't sure of as far as identification, kind of resembling a small fish skull that I have. But I'm not sure. Thanks to all who are helping identify this fossil. I will also be commenting with additional photos.
