  1. My friend and I did about 4 tanks each over the weekend in the Santa Fe above the 41 bridge and the Suwannee downstream of Mayo. I did miss one box of fossils for the pic, but judging by the slim pickings and seeing one guy on a hooka rig on the same spot for 6 hours, I'd say these areas have had too much hunting pressure. The more interesting pieces... A large hunk of mega fauna (giant sloth?) A piece of chert with econoids Half a Herty cup Doll head A large fish vert (sturgeon?) And for the detailed picture of the fossil that somewhat resembles a tooth, I have no idea at all! The surface texture doesn't match what I've seen on mammal teeth before.
  2. St. Marys river 11-11-18

    Did some blackwater diving in the St. Marys river this past weekend. The biggest Meg tooth was a hair under 6” and also found a nice little benedini!
  3. Me and my wifes first trip to the meg ledge we pulled up 20 teeth! Between the 7 of us on the boat we pulled up over 100 teeth
  4. Went on a meg tooth dive trip and found these fossils as well! Was wondering if anyone could help my out with a ID.
  5. Feb Cooper River Diving

    Got to spend another weekend diving the Cooper River in South Carolina with Alan Devier. If you dive the Cooper or want to dive the Cooper, Alan is the guy to go with. He is a class act. Found a bunch of good teeth and was an all around good time.
  6. Thinking about hunting the Peace river

    Would like all the details I can get. I will use a guide and would like to know your favorites and why. I have a jet ski and motorized canoe. If I choose not to use a guide (not likely) are these devices allowed? Is scuba allowed? What parts of the river are best? Are there rules, laws, restrictions? What are the river conditions now and is there an online water temp/water level gauge? What levels are best?
  7. Hey everyone, I'm new to this but I was hoping to get your help with an ID for this fossil.. I found it and several neat things diving the Edisto River in SC this past weekend. Let me know if you need any better pics. Thanks - Kniero
  8. I am cleaning/sorting last seasons finds. I went to my local fossil club last night and a friend was showing off a couple of boxes!!! of Megs, GWs, Makos, Hemis, Whale teeth, etc that he found last week. I am a sucker for color and took these photos of a Meg. There were likely 15-20 teeth that had this color combo, which I thought unusual for the Atlantic Ocean. Note the benedini in the background. As I consider this, maybe he said "Four or Five" and I was concentrating on the Teeth and "heard" Fortyfive. I have gone out 15 miles and that is quite a distance in a boat.
  9. Hi, I am going to be spending the summer in Florida with my parents on a key between Sarasota and Venice (10min drive) to Venice. I am looking for options for scuba and other non beach fossil hunting. I am technically an advanced diver (I have the certification, but I recieved it at a summer camp 6 years ago in a lake and I have never actually been saltwater diving). My parents are not fans of diving and wouldn't let me go alone, until I became an adult (21). I want to go fossil diving down somewhere around Venice, but I don't live down there, so I am very unfamiliar with the territory and don't know of a good diving group to go with. I would also need rental equipment and maybe even a refresher course since it was so long ago. Given that I am a green diver, large groups (12) are not ideal. Any suggestions on groups would be wonderful! I was also wondering what some good hunting spots in the area are and what kind of fossils would be found? I have so many small sharks teeth, mouth plates, petrified wood from years of snorkeling off the shore, so I was hoping to expand the variety.
  10. Peace River Wednesday And Thursday

    My brother and I are headed down to bowling Green to stay in the very best western. (Hot tub) we are driving down today to hunt tomorrow and thanksgiving. I see that we are going to have some serious rain on wed. And I am wondering if anyone could tell me roughly how much I can expect the river to rise based on an inch of rain... we plan to go back into Charlie creek. we both have full hooded 8mm semi dry suits and are not too worried about getting cold just trying to figure out how much I can expect to see the river rise while I'm there.. i am trying out a couple of dive lights my friend gave me. Hope they help. We have only been down to the peace a total of four times and have done well each trip. Fingers crossed...our family does thanksgiving on Friday due to work schedules of the fam. So hopefully we will be back to hunt sat and Sunday too. Anyone who has a kayak and a suit are more than welcome to join us we are going to the canoe outpost in Gardner at 7:30 tomorrow morning. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Also if any members ever make it to Jacksonville I would love to show off some great spots on the saint Johns river and on some spoil piles. Happy hunting to all.
  11. Whale Atlas (?) & Shark Teeth

    Just finished some diving off the SE coast of NC in 85-95 feet of water on a limestone ledge popular with shark teeth hunters. I've attached some of my finds, and would be grateful for any feedback on anything that is noteworthy (still fairly new to this!). I also found what I believe is a whale atlas vertebra (not complete), as the area we find the teeth in has a lot of whale bone fragments also. Thus, could someone try and positively identify this? Measures approximately 10 x 7 x 3 inches. Also, is there anywhere I could get some of the more damaged teeth and the whale vertebra restored? And what might the cost run to? Duncan.
  12. Have not been on the Fossil Forum in a while. Been hunting the creeks and rivers here in the "Low Country" SC
  13. Check out this photo scrapbook I made of photos I have taken over the years Thanks to all the contributors. Mostly sharks teeth, scuba, some ocean shots, gold, and emeralds. I enjoyed making this. Let me know if you enjoy it also. Thanks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqfV6-CEGGE
  14. River Finds From February

    Here are a few of the fossils I found in February. The meg measures about 5 3/4" and weighs a little over a pound while the ray plate almost 4" across the widest point. I was working my way up the river in a crazy rocky place and all of a sudden in the open was this tooth. The serration are pretty good considering the beat up display side of the tooth. I suspect that though the meg may not have rolled or moved much, a bunch of rocks have moved over it before I got there. And then there are some colorful makos. The bottom right mako is almost shaped like a planus, though I would guess it is a retroflexus. I had a few other finds, but these are a few of the more interesting ones. Water temperatures have been cool, but it is amazing how laying eyes on a tooth can warm you up a bit. I get to put the boat back in the shop tomorrow for what might be some expensive repairs, so not sure when I will be getting back in. Jason
  15. Hey fellow fossil enthusiast. I will be uploading another video sometime this week, but want to show some screen shots to wet the whistle. In addition to a bunch of fossils, I ran into some mostly friendly sea life. The water was a bit chilly, but the horseshoe crab pair didn't seem to mind . Jason
  16. 2011 Cooper River Dive

    This is a rather old video, but shows my brother and I taking the plunge in the Cooper River in search of big megs.
  17. Fossiling Sc Locations

    Found some baby teeth while scuba fossiling last weekend. Plans to go hunting again mid and late June. The guy next to me found a killer Angy. He swears it is a Ric. Have information on a couple of potentially good land site locations. Willing to trade for detailed info on other Charleston SC/Summerville/Cottageville land sites. Yet to be cleaned baby teeth Angy or Ric?
