  1. Can anyone help me with the water levels at Greens mill run? Going to make a trip there in the next couple days and I want to make sure it’s not super high.. anyone in the area seen if the 10th street bridge is high or the park?! Please and thank you!!
  2. This Summer’s Finds

    Hello all! While these are all only pieces of teeth, I have found two species I never have before. I found an angustidens as well as a small GW fragment. If any of my ID guesses are wrong, feel free to point them out. Thanks for looking. Also, notice the serrations in the close ups of the GW fragment and how they differ from the close ups of a baby meg.
  3. Shark Teeth?

    Hey guys... First post here. I live around the Victoria area here in Ellis County. I've always been interested in our local history, but my interests have recently shifted to a little 'older' part of our history around here, more specifically when we were covered by warm-water oceans. I've spent a good portion of this summer walking creeks searching for SOMETHING, ANYTHING, and have came up empty handed. It's my understanding that the Sharks teeth and vertebrae will mostly be located in a specific sediment layer, and apparently I'm missing that. Can anybody help me out with identifying good places to search for these 'common' fossils that seem to be eluding me? Any help is greatly appreciated!!
  4. This coming up weekend?! Sept. 20-22.

    Hello everyone! I was originally going to go to the Mine in Maysville NC this weekend and look for Teeth but I’m pretty sure they will call it off due to the bad weather they had. I also thought about going to GMR but they flood very easy and I don’t know if the water will be down by Thur. Or Friday. Can anyone help me with any spots that might be good within a 3 hour drive of Virginia Beach. Or if anyone reading this lives near Greenville and have any news on the water levels at the park or the bridge could you please let me know?! Thanks in advance! -Holly
  5. Hi guys, last week I was on holiday in Austria and had the chance to hunt at the area of Adnet. There you can find fossils in the red "Adneter Schichten" which are lower jurassic deposits. I was there twice for about 4 hours at all and I found some cool stuff! At my first visit I found plenty of ammonites, one nautilus and some bivalves. It was a very rainy day. Here is a picture of the site: And this is the only ammonite I could prepped until now: Its a 5 cm long Phylloceras. A kinda common species there. The prep work is really difficult, because there is no really separation layer between stone and fossil. I didnt prepped the nautilus until now so I can you show a picture of the unprepped example: On my second visit the weather was very good (maybe even too hot ). Because of that and because of the enormous luck I had I found some shark teeth I didnt really expect to find one although I had already saw some teeth from there on the internet. But I didnt found one I found many Here are the 4 nicest ones until now: The first one is very fragile and 1 cm long: The second shark tooth is about 2 cm long and I like the combination with a crinoid stem: Then this one is about 1.2 cm long and seems to be only a fragment. But I still like it And last but not least the find of the day: A 2.6 cm long shark tooth!! I will try to take better pictures of last and biggest shark tooth after cutting the stone a bit smaller. At the moment the tooth is on a huge stone! The prep work on the shark teeth was also very hard because the teeth are very fragile and the stone is very hard. I prepped it with different needles and with my air scribe I am very pleased with those finds I assume that all shark teeth are Sphenodus shark teeth. Thanks for watching! Hope you enjoyed
  6. @Cris and I went to a brand new, unexplored site for us the other day, and it was definitely promising! We grabbed the canoe and went in a small, swampy creek. After lifting the canoe over what seemed like hundreds of log jams, we finally ended up finding some gravel! Sure enough, the gravel contained some fossils and we freaked out! Nothing insane was found this time, but we believe there is some amazing potential. We'll be heading back to this site for more exploration very soon!
  7. Cretaceous Shark Teeth ID

    Would anyone possibly be able to help me identify the types of shark teeth in this picture? They are from Post Oak Creek in Sherman, TX. Thank you!
  8. Creekin' for Shark Teeth!

    @Cris and myself went on another brutally hot fossil hunt to the creek yesterday. We went for just a few hours, and were very pleased with the results! We found a couple roughed up Megalodon teeth, some very nice Mako's, a big crocodile tooth, and my favorite find of the day was a killer three-toed horse tooth! I'm gonna go rest my back now
  9. GMR Tomorrow?

    On my way back home to New Jersey from our road trip, I’m stopping in Greenville tonight. I am going to collect for a few hours tomorrow morning and drive the rest of the way home. Is anyone up for a few hours?
  10. Isurus Desori?

    Hey everyone! I’m just looking for a confirmation seeing as i’m not very experienced. I found this in Summerville, SC, sticking out of the chandler bridge formation (late oligocene). I believe it is a tooth from the extinct mako, desori? Sorry, I don’t have anything to scale it with but it is about 1.75 inches long.
  11. Headed To Big Brook

    Headed out to Big Brook tomorrow. We have a few hot spots for belemnites and oysters but not so for shark teeth. When we explore this area we always head downstream of the bridge. Is it worth exploring upstream of the bridge? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Hello! This is my first time posting on the forum. My family and I got into fossil hunting about a year ago. My two sons (ages five and seven) love dinosaurs just like many kids their age, so while on vacation in Florida, we made a day trip to Venice Beach to look for shark teeth. We didn't even have sifters, but we found a handful of shark teeth and were hooked! We've enjoyed making day trips to Aurora Fossil Museum in NC to "dig the past." We decided to change things up a little and explore Green Mill Run in NC. We live in Chesapeake, VA (near Virginia Beach), so Greenville is about two hours and twenty minutes away. Aurora is about two hours and forty minutes away. We brought a large shovel and a few screens. I have a couple of small hand sifters (intended for baking) that the boys can get a good handle on. We had a medium screen that we bought in Aurora and we zip-tied a pool noodle around it so it would float. This past April, we went fossil hunting in the Peace River in Florida, so hunting at Green Mill Run was similar. The water level was pretty low (a foot high or less) and there was plenty of shade so the boys could take a break from the sun. At first, I tried digging around a rock to see if any teeth were caught up in there. I would get about an average of three teeth per shovelful. It was great to be finding so many teeth like in Aurora while also keeping cool in the water! After about an hour, I decided to try moving around to different spots where I saw lots of rocks instead of sticking one place. This approach yielded even more teeth. We walked away with lots of shark teeth, squid pens (they're called pens, right?), and other fragments that seemed significant. We hunted for about two hours until the boys were ready to go and a bit hangry (I did pack a lunch...). I could have stayed all day, but they were a bit tired after the long car ride--and we still had to go back in the car to get home. It was a great first trip there and I'd love to go back! My husband was a bit worried about the possibility of snakes, but we didn't see any at all. I would definitely recommend water shoes because there was A LOT of glass in the sand. My seven-year-old son makes videos of our fossil hunting trips for his YouTube channel, which he calls Dino Study. If you want, you can watch it below. My five-year-old son doesn't like making as much of an appearance on camera, so there is a little less footage of him. The best finds included a nice, large sand tiger tooth (found by my seven-year-old) and a large great white tooth (I believe) that I found from the surface. Most of the teeth from the day. I saw this and thought it could be a molar of some kind or perhaps just a conveniently-shaped rock. I have a photo of the top and bottom.
  13. Is this a baby meg tooth?

    I found this tooth at point a dam, is it a baby meg? I really can’t tell..
  14. First stop on our road trip was at brownies beach Thursday. My boys, our dog, and myself had a great time! Weather was fantastic. We walked around the bend, spent about 3 hours total. Saw lots of blueclaw crabs, some fish, and the boys had a bald eagle fly about 10 feet over their heads. And we found some teeth! A few makos, couple of hemis, some tigers, lemons... on the way out my son asked me to help him clear sand out of his water shoes and I found a nice fish vert in 4 inches of water just a few feet before I got to him. I thanked him for deciding to clear his shoes out at that spot. We also kept a few shells that were in good condition and will make a nice display. We stopped at gmr on friday, will post our results soon. Currently we are in the Charleston area and my boys REALLY want to find a meg. I do not know my way around here, but we will try to explore a creek or two in the Summerville area, have to look on google maps.
  15. Hey everyone, I'm looking for a Cardabiodon tooth (or possibly a Dwardius) If you have one, please message me and we can make a trade! Will trade other species of shark teeth (I have a lot of different options), so PM me if you are looking for a specific species to trade!
  16. Shark Teeth Identification 2

    I have several shark teeth from Post Oak Creek in Grayson County, Texas and I was hoping to get help with identification. The period is Cretaceous. Thank you in advance for any help.
  17. Shark Teeth Identification

    I have several shark teeth from Post Oak Creek in Grayson County, Texas and I was hoping to get help with identification. From what I've read it is the Cretaceous period. Here are some of them. Thank you in advance.
  18. My finds in Cape Town

    During my holiday in South Africa, I found out about a beach called Lagoona Beach where you could find shark teeth. So today I spent about 2 hours hunting for fossils at the beach, and these are my finds. I found loads of chunks of cetacean bones including a large whale vertebra, a partial rib and a massive chunk(that maybe one of you guys could maybe ID). I only found one little shark tooth, I’m guessing it’s a Mako shark tooth. However one of the other collectors there found a Megalodon tooth which I didn’t expect. But overall I’m quite happy with my findings. And South Africa is an amazing place, soon I hope that I can go cage diving with the mighty Great White shark.
  19. Hey, all! I’m planning a trip to England’s Jurassic Coast next summer. I’ve researched areas like Dorset, Charmouth, and Lyme Regis. I plan to hit all these in my time there. Any other recommendations or information I should know? I’m excited to explore the area and collect some new fossils!
  20. Triassic Shark teeth?

    Hi, I'm brand new to the Forum but would appreciate any identification of the attached photo. I've had a look on line and it looks like I have a collection of triassic shark teeth (Lissodus minimus). Found at Aust cliff, South Gloucestershire on Saturday.
  21. Help with more Myrtle Beach Finds

    After going through the last of our fossil finds from our vacation at Myrtle Beach, SC these are the ones we would like help identifying. Thank you!
  22. @Cris and I set out again to some trusty shark tooth hunting sites! For some reason, we both weren't very confident about the potential finds when we left for the site. Gladly, we were proven wrong, and the Fossil Gods blessed us with some grear fossils! But hey, all fossils are great no matter what, right?
  23. Type of Sharks Teeth

    I found these teeth on a North Carolina beach about 25 years ago and was always curious what type they may be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  24. Hi, stopping at in Greenville for a night on our way to Charleston for vacation. Looking for advice on where to park, stream access, if any part of the stream has more Cretaceous vs. Miocene etc... any tips would be much appreciated. Will be me, my two boys and our dog. Thank you.
