  1. Actually, it's not MY site. It's freely available for everyone and I do meet up with some enthusiasts there occasionally, but usually I just pedal out there on my bike and enjoy the peace and quiet. The most active creatures at this place are actually the wood ants in the summertime when they like to climb up inside my pants. I was there again today and this time I took along my camera for posterity's sake. Continued...
  2. Last saturday I went on my 2nd fossilhunt to the "Wienerberger quarry" in Rumst (Belgium) with my girlfriend and the BVP, my fossil club. This quarry is only accessible for fossil collections during official excursions organised by fossils clubs. The quarry existed out of multiple layers, the oldest was a oligocene clay layer dating back to the Rupelian (named for the region) around 33.90 - 20.10 mya, although I didn't hunt in that layer, some of the finds that could be done there were bivalves, gastropods and brachiopods. The layer where most people hunted was a very thin miocene layer dating back probably to the Burdigalian around 20.43 - 15.97 mya. The most common finds here were multiple species of shark teeth and some marine mammal fossils. And then there was another layer were it was possible to find Pleistocene fossils dating back to the last ice age, but the chances of finding anything there was quite slim. So me & my girlfriend and most of the other fellow fossil hunters mostly hunted in the miocene layer in search for fossil shark teeth. The overlook to the entrance of the quarry, looking at the oligocene clay layers. Everyone digging for and sieving through that thin layer full of miocene shark teeth Me looking for some teeth My girlfriend looking for some teeth And while we were digging for the layer like everyone else, the finds were a bit meager at first, not just for us but for everyone. But then my girlfriend found a tooth a bit lower on the hill and we started scraping away the top layer of sand. Turns out that some previous land slides washed the best material down hill, lower than were the rest was hunting and so the spoils started coming. We found most material there including our best find, a 6,5 cm long C. hastalis tooth found by my girlfriend and a partial marine mammal vert found by me! I believe our hastalis tooth was the 2nd largest tooth found that day, only a megalodon found during the trip was bigger. As the day was drawing to an end and our spot was becoming depleted of fossils we took a walk around the quarry to look for a new spot only to return to our old spot to start digging towards the miocene layer again. But this time a little bit more to the right. We found a few nice shark teeth while doing this and a lot of iron concretions but but much else. Only during the last few minutes of the trip I did hit something that wasn't a concretion. After some digging it turned out to be a piece of wooly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) which ended up a little bit above the miocene layers during a previous land slide.
  3. Flag Pond, MD

    Stopped in to look for shark teeth, but forgot my waders. Couldn’t search like I wanted.
  4. I recently found a small box of shark teeth that I obtained when I was a kid. It turns out that the labels, when translated from Spanish described the features of the fossils and not the actual species. Quite a number were not even true fossils they were mislabeled recently extinct species. Moral of this story: kids are dumb, and don’t buy fossils unless their labeled with the Latin name.
  5. DDMA (DREDGING DISPOSAL MANAGEMENT AREA)

    My question is below but here is a brief intro! Thank you all for the great insight into fossil hunting. I'm Josh, from Florida and have been hunting relics for about 5 years now (27yo), from metal detecting to surface hunting. Just a hobby that I do occasionally, mostly to learn about the history of our land and try to preserve it before it's all worn away. I find the research in hunting almost more fun than the actual craft. Although, it's tough here in FL to be caught "preserving history" .....give me a break. Anyways, i've been lucky enough to have a job as a Surveyor which has put me in places that I hate sometimes.... but also gives me access to pieces of land that a lot of hunters dream of in FL. I've been able to find old bottles, arrowheads, and relics at work without the hassle of getting permissions(that would be mostly impossible to get otherwise). So when i'm hunting on my time I always find it so hard to find places to do so freely. Anyways, enough about me. Here is my question regarding a potential megalodon tooth site, definitely shark tooth site. I've found some nice dredging in my area, with dredge disposal management area listed on the bid. It's accessible from what I can tell on the maps but labeled as "District-Owned" and overseen by General Contractor/Engineer. Has anyone hunted a site like this in Florida? It's essentially a dredge spoil island with management. If so, did you wait for the project to finish and come in after? Approach the site manager? Hunt it without permission? Thank you for any insight, it's greatly appreciated!
  6. Fossils on Wheels teamed up with the Gateway Science Museum to bring a whole lot of shark education to Chico this past Saturday. Our friend Tay Francis of the Gateway did a shark tooth ID lab inside the museum while Carter and I talked shark evolution outside. We had about 65 or so people stop by our table, mostly families. We handed out about 30 bags of shark teeth. Several teachers stopped by and they got flyers so we should get a few more programs booked from it. Carter did a fantastic job representing us as I also had to function as supervisor for the museum. This capped a very busy and exciting week for us. We added hooker Oak Elementary to list of schools we’ve done programs at with a really fun When Reptiles Ruled the Earth program for their 4th grade students. On Thursday we got interviewed by the Chico News and Review ! We had a lot of fun talking about what we do and why we do it. We have given away enough fossils to need a restock so we picked up a bunch, 250 or so. That should get us through the end of 2019. I even managed to find a bit of time to write up some material for up coming programs for 2nd graders working on their Dinosaur reports. Busy week but we had a lot of fun My son introducing some people to our sharks
  7. High water and cold weather, but still found teeth.
  8. Some of my megs

    I have acquired a very small collection of Meg Teeth over the years. Nothing fantastic collection wise. I feel I have managed to acquire a nice tooth or 2 with some that are probably fairly common. 1st one I will post is the 1st bone valley meg I ever acquired. It's small but the color is striking to me. No point and the serrations are worn, but it always catches the eye.
  9. Purse Park, MD

    A few hours relaxing and finding teeth.
  10. Big Brook NJ Trip

    Hi. I went to Big Brook again on Friday for my weekly quick trip. We had a really bad rain storm mid week so the the water was the highest I have ever seen it and the creek floor was like quicksand because of the 8-10 inches of fresh sand and other snarge. Every time I took a step my foot would sink down. The first 2 hours was nothing special. More of a struggle getting around. But the last hour I found a very productive spot. I posted one of the finds in fossil I’d. A big thanks you to @The Jersey Devil for all is patients and help with ID. Enjoy the pics. Hope I ID everything correctly. Plesiosaur tooth. Super excited about this one!
  11. South Carolina beach hunt

    Ancient Bones, old bones and husband Dennis, along with Annie the rat terrier were joined by my brother and his wife on a trip to the Carolina coast. All of the following fossils were beach finds. I am posting for Ancient Bones and myself. Here are some of our favorite finds. Ancient Bones found this great alligator osteoderm. and several of these Burrfish mouth plates. She also found nice ivory fragments like this one. These are some of Ancient Bones various ray crushing teeth including Aetobatus, Plinthicus stenodon, and Myloibatis. These are Ancient Bones shark teeth. Sand Tiger Great White shark tooth an assortment of smaller teeth We are not sure which these are. Please jump in and help Ancient Bones ID these. We kept this item as we considered that it may be a periodic... @Boesse continued in next reply
  12. Small great white tooth?

    Hi. These three where found in St. Pete’s Florida on the beach. Is it possible the first one in top is a small great white? The serrations on both sides is causing me to think that. The middle tooth I think is hammerhead? based on the research I did. The bottom tooth I believe is sandbar based on how thin the root is and the length of the blade? Any feedback would be much appreciated. I’m still trying my best to ID these as accurately as possible. Thank you in advance!
  13. Septarian nodule

  17. Hunting in Georgia, US?

    Hello everybody, how’s everybody doing? I am planning on flying out to the lovely state of Georgia in December and I would like to know what my options are regarding fossil hunting/ mineral collecting. I plan on flying into Atlanta, then driving to Macon. A day or two will be spent fishing on the Coast most likely around Savannah so I’ll try shark tooth hunting for sure. Nothing has been permanently decided as of yet except fishing. Now I know there is shark teeth on the Coast as I already mentioned but I know there’s maybe trilobites somewhere and that there’s certain places with garnet sand. I also know that the water level in the rivers out there get higher in the winter if I remember correctly. Will that stop me from being able to hunt for teeth and/or trilobites? It would be most appreciated if anybody could PM me with some rough locations or formations for me to research. Also any tips on beach collecting would be great as I haven’t tried it yet. Thanks!
  18. Big brook trip

    Hi. Thought I would share my two trip experience/finds to big brook. I live about an hour away so I get to go as much as I want during the week. I went last Thursday and this past Monday. Thursday was not good at all. I got a flat tire and ended up changing my tire in the BB parking lot. I had just enough time to find one shark tooth because it was getting dark. I went back this Monday to redeem myself. Here are my findings: i know top left is a vertebrae I thought I might of had something good but then the dried out and they all look like snarge row 1 is gobblin row 2-3 are crow I believe kaupi row 4 is mackerel but not sure which species row5 I have no clue haha row 6 sand tiger I believe this is a fish tooth or claw. Not sure Any corrections to my IDs would be much appreciated. Thank you! Also if anyone is interested in going to BB during the week it would be great to have company. I can be there from10-1 Monday through Friday. Just need about a week notice. PM if anyone is interested
  19. Had the chance to return to Big Brook, NJ with the family to search for cretaceous-era fossils. I am new to fossil hunting (this was my second time!) and had some interesting finds this trip - it is so much fun to learn about the prehistoric life in this area. It was a lovely day, although the brook was a little on the cold side. I would appreciate some help with identifying these 9 fossils: My best guesses are: 1) Mackerel/porbeagle shark (Cretolamna appendiculata) 2) Fish vertebra (is it possible to figure out the species?) 3) Unsure about this one, also Cretolamna? 4) Brachiopod (Choristothyris plicata) 5) Salmonoid (Enchodus petrosus) 6) Mackerel/porbeagle shark (Cretolamna appendiculata) 7) Goblin shark (Scapanorhynchus texanus?) 8) Sand tiger shark (Carcharias) 9) Crow shark (Squalicorax kaupi) Happy to provide more pictures if it would be helpful. Also, I found what looked like a bone (in the center of the below picture), but ended up throwing it back in the brook, believing it to be a concretion. Can anyone confirm that it's probably a concretion? Just want to make sure I didn't discard something like a Dryptosaurus phalanx in my search for shark teeth!
  20. Few hours at Flag Pond, MD

    Spent a few hours at Flag Pond today. The weather was great.
  21. My last fossil hunt in England

    Things have been really hectic over the last month in preparation (and actual event) of our international move. We left England on 27 September and stayed in Denver, CO for a week. We are now in Cheyenne, WY for the next 4 years. Before we left England I wanted to go on one last fossil hunt, and it was one of the best trips ever! On 23 Sept I set out for the beach at Bawdsey. It’s a mostly flint pebble beach with exposures of London Clay. It’s supposed to be good for shark teeth and it did not disappoint! Previously, I’ve only found up to 2 shark teeth at any location and that was on a miracle day. This day I found 10 and a quarter (that still counts, right?)! I found a few flint belemnites, or so they would appear. A lot of fossilized bone (the first I’ve ever found!). And some really pretty and sparkly chunks of pyrite. There is also a ton of pyritized wood, and some of the best preserved I’ve seen but I didn’t take any. Every time I found a shark tooth I would squeal with excitement. I’m glad I had the beach to myself for the 3 hours because I sounded like a kid finding hidden Easter eggs. Needless to say it was an amazing fossil day. I already miss England so much and wish I were back.
  22. I've always wanted to find some fossil shark teeth but never knew what to look for or where to go. After some research, I made a sieve and headed out to the hills of North Canterbury, New Zealand, to have a fossick around. The formation is about 60myo and is famous for the giant penguin and bird fossils that have been found in the vicinity. The first two hours were a bust as I sifted through some debris at likely looking sites, I did get a bit excited about a piece of bone I found which I think is from a rabbit on closer inspection. As I was filling the last bucket, I spotted a white dot in the cliff... my first shark tooth! It was about 1cm long, tiny but still a shark tooth! After switching to eyeballing instead of sifting, I found two more! One smaller and one larger shark tooth, the larger one showing a bit of damage but good details. All in all, I really enjoyed being out and actually finding a fossil shark tooth. If anyone can point me in the right direction to figure out what species it could be, please let me know! Or if you have some tips on finding shark teeth more efficiently, I'd love to hear about them. I made a 10min video of the day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kwqRWARWJk I've included some photos I took that day. Thanks for reading!
  23. Shark teeth ID help

    These where found on the beach in St. Pete’s FL. Having trouble IDing them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  24. HELP!

    I’m from Jersey and I like to go fossil hunting around here but I’m looking to find bigger and more interesting teeth. The teeth I find here bar biggest an inch and it’s rare to find one that big. I’m going on a trip out to South Carolina. Anyone have any tips or any places I can use to go to To find bigger teeth?
  25. Last week, we had the opportunity to visit the eastern parts of North Carolina guided by a local resident (my brother!!). A great time was had by all. Scenery is spectacular!!!!. We not only relaxed on the beach but we went shelling and fished. Wildlife was everywhere. From wild horses on the barrier islands to the birds. The dolphins were my favorite. I was hoping that the hurricane which recently brought large waves to the beach, may have brought in some fossils too. Such was not the case. So our group of one fossil hunter (me) and three novices that were neutral on looking for fossils set off to an inland site that I had researched prior to a earlier visit last year. When I was at this site previously, I came up with a goose egg, and it was NOT a fossil. So my expectations were pretty low. The site was along the Neuse River as seen in this picture. Most of our finds were in amongst the reeds and tree stumps. I think the beach area had been picked clean by other visitors.
