  1. 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!
  2. Piedmont SC?

    Can I find fossils in the Piedmont region of South Carolina, if so, how can I find them.
  3. Small Ivory or tooth?

    Found diving in the cooper river SC Thanks in advance
  4. Folly Beach, SC Fossil

    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.
  5. Fossilized bone?

    This was found in the sand at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. It looks like fossilized bone? If so, I was hoping that someone would have an idea of what it is from.
  6. Confused on identity of Fossil

    Hello, I am here to inquire about the legitimacy and or identification of a specimen I came into possession of. Subject is very confusing and grey, I am not sure what kind of, or even if it is a fossil. It was found in a construction site in Summerville South Carolina.

    Collecting in SC, small controversy. http://www.thestate.com/latest-news/article205982124.html
  9. Found some fossilized critters downtown Charleston SC Museum of Natural History - College of Charleston
  10. Giant thresher ?

    I saw this for sale (super cheap) and it’s labeled “Megalodon”, it looks to me to actually be a Giant Thresher (Alopias/Trigonotodus grandis). It’s about an inch and says was found on the SC coast. What’s your take? Thinking about buying it.
  11. Baby Gater skull fragment

    Here is the find we made in SC. I think It is a fragment of a baby alligator or croc. Found it on the beach in the surf. Any thoughts? And how rare are these little guys?
  12. Carcharodon carcharias (Linnaeus 1758)

    From the album Pisces

    5.5cm. Great white. From the Miocene of South Carolina. Obtained on a trade with mattbsharks.
  13. Carcharocles angustidens (Agassiz 1843)

    From the album Pisces

    4.5cm. Fron the Miocene of South Carolina.
  14. Thought I'd share some angustidens I'd just received in the mail. Bought these online for 12 bucks including the shipping, don't know if that's good or not, but I'm happy! 3 teeth, biggest one is 1 5/8 inches approximately and the other two are 1 1/2 approximately. Came from the oligocene of South Carolina (no idea the formation, might ask the seller but I don't think they found it) they are a little broken, but are enough to be representive of the species (or chronospecies if you prefer). I'm trying to make a display showing the evolution of the great white and the megalodon, starting with isurolamna, to my knowledge the proposed common ancestor. I'm currently looking for representative specimens of most of them (chub, isurolamna, escheri, hubbelli, praecursor, etc PM me if you have one for cheap or maybe for trade, although I'm low on trading material right now) Sellers pics are better than mine, so using them! thanks for looking!
  15. Summerville Screamers!

    Hello Everyone! I can honestly, finally, say that I'm beginning to figure out the fossil-enigma that is Summerville, SC. It is a strange land where fossil deposits start and end within a matter of feet - a few inches of glorious gravel separating the sandy, ghostly-grey Chandler Bridge and the compact brownish marl of the Ashley Formation. If, by some miracle, you can find a ditch with the exact right depth, enough width, a little flowing water within a fossil-bearing strata that hasn't been hit by a million other collectors, you just might be able to put something together. Thanks to some nasty weather and a couple of days off of work, I've managed to finally find some spots that fit the bill. The finds pictured below come from two creeks (of maybe 15 that I checked) over the course of the last two days. The angustidens were the obvious gems, with one shamer nearly four inches long and nearly four inches wide! All-in-all, its been a great couple of days and I couldn't be happier with my success. I'll be planning another trip in the near future! Take care and as always.. Happy hunting, SOSC
  16. Summerville Pays Off Big Time!

    Hello Everyone, Yesterday was my only day off from work this week and I decided that I was overdue for a nice tooth. My usual tidal spots are covered in a fine layer of silt from our recent rainstorms, so I decided to give Summerville a try. For me, productive Summerville sites are about a 30-35 minute drive which is usually enough to keep me on the coast. I've taken a handful of trips to the area, but haven't found anything particularly noteworthy...until this trip! This was a complete 'Hail Mary" trip - I knew I wanted to start with a main canal system and work through some of the deeper feeder creeks. I usually have very little success on the scouting trips, occasionally finding some reworked stuff and interesting formation. But yesterday after over two hours of hiking, spiders, knee-deep mud, and intense heat...I finally found some absolutely beautiful Chandler Bridge Formation lining a deep ditch in the middle of nowhere. I immediately got the sensation that I'd hit a virgin creek. The finds were plentiful with many, many of the usual broken shark teeth and bone pieces and a handful of gems in the mix. Of particular note are a pair of cream-colored Hemipristis serra, a stunner of a 2.2" Carcharocles angustidens, assorted vertebrae, and some associated alligator material! All-in-all it was the best Summerville trip I've had to date, and I'm excited to try some new areas in the near future. Cheers! SOSC My camera batteries just ran out of juice, so stay tuned for forthcoming close-up shots!
  17. Limb Bone from Cooper River SC

    Hello Forum members, I found this limb bone while diving the Cooper River in SC. I initially thought it likely to be a deer bone based on the overall size and proportions, but I'm unable to match it to any deer bone descriptions I've found. Any ideas?
  18. Hi All, I'm presenting another mammal tooth I found diving the Cooper River in South Carolina. You'll notice only a small percentage of the tooth is covered with beautiful brown enamel (or is it cementum?). When I found the tooth, it had complete 100% coverage. I had no idea it was so fragile. I dropped it into my goody bag, and unfortunetly (?) I was having a good dive and had picked up quite a few other fossils including some big megs. By the time I surfaced and emptied my bag, most of that beautiful brown enamel (?) was nothing but a big pile of flakes in the bottom of the bag. It's a real bummer. It was in very pristine condition when I picked it up. It must of been a very recent erosion, because otherwise the river would've stripped the tooth itself. Anyway, I'm not sure what it is...
  19. SC River Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, Another Mammal tooth found river diving in South Carolina, and I'm not sure what it is:
  20. Cooper River SC Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, I'm currently on a dive trip to the Cooper River in SC. I found this tooth the other day. The guys I'm diving with believe it to be a horse incisor. To me, it seems too straight to be horse.
  21. Hello everybody! Its been a while since I've had the opportunity to post anything here, though I have been enjoying seeing everyone else's finds. My job has become steadily busier as the weather and water become warmer, so the last couple days of rain have afforded me some time off. I've been hunting substantially less often then I would like to, but have still managed some nicer finds in the last month or so. I'd say the finds below probably represent something around 5-6 hunts at the same couple sites that I've been visiting for the last year or so. Ive also added some "in situ" photos from a beach hunt I did with my work a few days ago. Take care, SOSC First off, a group shot - Today's very nice Angustidens tooth - A really exceptional (and beautifully-colored) mako, Isurus desori - A nice Alopias grandis - A colorful great white- And a crazy lil posterior(?) or symphyseal(?) angustidens - ...And a very, very large shark vertebral plate -
  22. Unknown, help needed

    Had a fairly unsuccessful trip to SC. Found these two items in a river and not sure what they are. Larger is about 7/8" and smaller just under 1/2". Not sure what period they are from. Thanks for any assistance.
