  1. Found this on the coast in South Carolina. I was about to toss it aside but I noticed the striations on the front surface. It's about 1 & 3/8 inches from top to bottom. The back side looks nothing like a shark tooth, but could this just be a broken fragment of something that was once larger?
  2. From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a lovely little tooth found in very good condition. Most teeth of this kind are found with badly damaged roots but this one has survived the rigours of time.
  3. These were found at the Sulphur River at Ladonia Fossil Park yesterday - which fossils are from the crustaceous period from what I've read. The river is in the process of flooding so I searched far on the banks where I usually wouldn't probably look, since getting in the river wasn't an option yesterday. The white thing is the one I'm mainly curious about. But, at the rate I have been going, I may as well ask about the other one too, since I have yet to find a winner. Thanks again for your time, I truly appreciate it. Laura
  4. I found a new spot in Illinois that is loaded with carboniferous black shale. And this tooth fragment has gotten me pretty excited. Can anyone attempt an ID on this partial? The tooth measures about 1/2" × 1/2".
  5. Hi all, I need help identifying this shark tooth. I am new to shark tooth hunting, and was wondering if anybody could lend a hand. The tooth was found on Topsail Island. Let me know if anymore information is needed. Thanks!
  6. plz identify tooth thank you for the help

  8. Hello all! I want to go shark hunting for the first time!! My gf and I are making a trip from charlotte to the charleston area for a weekend. Im originally from Chicago, so it is rare that I go to a beach let alone shark tooth hunt. Anyways, It would be a dream to find a great white tooth or megadolon. Sharks have always been my favorite animal (especially a great white). So the thought of finding a tooth is exciting. You probably get asked this a lot, but do you know of any specific places (that you are willing) to share to have a decent chance of finding a good tooth? This will just be a weekend trip and then I have to start my new job hours from the beach. So, I will not be depleting fossil locations. Just a fun weekend trip hoping to share some good memories. Thank you guys so much, Jeremy
  9. Hi everyone, Here are multiple repairs I just made to megalodon teeth. For some of them I forgot to take before pictures, The blue tooth has a completely reconstructed left side of the root, and a chunk of the blade and enamel are repaired.
  10. Hi all, I've this odd shark tooth and the seller told me it was a Megalodon, just wanted to double check. It looks pathological if it is a megalodon and comes from a river in Georgia. The size is 3.8". Thank you for your help!
  11. I recently acquired a shark tooth but I do not have a lot of expirience in this specific field and would like to ask what shark this comes from. I am certain it is from the Miocene period but I think it is a mako shark tooth.-Correct me if Im wrong. Pls*How much should I sell it for and how do I classify it
  12. I was skimming the bottom and came to a spot with several big bone chunks. I thought, "There's gotta be a meg here. GOT to." Sure enough. A few seconds later, I stumbled on this beauty. 4 1/4"
  13. Hi all! This is my fourth attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth. If anyone is looking to get rid of any teeth that are broken like this one, don't hesitate to send me a PM because I am always looking to get more teeth to work with. Enjoy! I am always open to any advice anyone can offer on how to make more authentic looking teeth. I am in the wilds of Maine, so it would take too long to post all of the pictures of it now. I will do so later. Here are just the before and after of the front.

  15. Hey everyone, I was hoping I could get your help in identifying what I think is a shark tooth? Embarrassingly enough it could just be a shell, but it looks an awful lot like a tooth to me. It's about 2" in length, if that helps, and I found it on the beach in Brackley, PEI. If it's a shark tooth, what shark does it belong to? And if it's not, what is it? If you have any ideas, I would love to know! It's really for curiosity's sake. Thank you! Here is the back-
  16. I was wondering if anyone can ID this tooth? It is from South Carolina. It looks like a meg but it has a very weird shape and deep drop in the middle of the root.
  17. Fossil found on Carolina Beach June 4th... Looks like a partial tooth like I have, but just would like another opinion...Thanks!!!
  18. Hi everyone, I am a new member of the forum and I'm hoping to gain some knowledge from you more experienced fossil collectors. I love buying megalodon and other fossil shark teeth. I have bought lots of teeth on ebay but I am trying to buy in bulk which I have found impossible to do on ebay at a reasonable price. When I looked online for websites, I found that all of the prices were incredibly high. I am looking for a relatively small order as far as wholesale orders go and most of the websites I found only do orders of $500+. Does anyone have any recommendations on what websites I could use that have good prices, or what ebay vendors do wholesale at a fair price? If so please let me know and thank you for your time. I am looking for teeth of all sizes and species, and they do not have to be complete teeth, but would ideally be atleast 75% complete.
  19. Wondering if someone could tell me what kind of tooth this is. I found it walking along the water at Elm's Beach, Maryland. Would love to know what type of tooth it is!
  20. So, it was a little rainy yesterday, but Forum member @addicted2fossils and myself were dying to get our fossil fix. We decided to take a drive over to some dirt roads that the county uses shell pit material on. Usually we can find a couple small shark teeth and a ton of marine invertebrates that we believe are from the Caloosahatchee formation....and occasionally, we get lucky and find something a little larger. This, by far, is the most "staged" looking video I have ever taken since you can't really see much of the shell material around the tooth.. A few people on social media are convinced we bought a tooth and threw it down for the video But, this is where the little megalodon tooth was when I saw it. I suspect it survived because it was in such a sandy spot. A couple modern chips on the tooth make me think it has been run over quite a few times. This isn't my best or biggest tooth, by far, but it was a blast finding it on a random terrible looking road. We had a ton of rain.....and we are going straight back to these roads to put in a full day of driving around very, very slowly with our heads out of the window. With some luck, we'll have some more video tomorrow.
  21. From the album Mazon creek assortment

  22. Going through some material acquired through a blind trade and have initially came across these few items. Any idea on the identities of these three items? They are not real large but are interesting.
  23. Went fossil collecting in Bakersfield Round mountain silt formation this weekend and found an unusual tooth. I think it belongs to a mako shark (isurus planus), but it is unlike any other shark tooth I have ever found from the locality. The root is damaged, but it is more than twice as thick as any other hook mako I have ever found. Never seen a shark tooth this thick. Any ideas on the identity of this tooth? Thanks in advance for the help.
  24. Found this at Post Oak Creek. Symphseal tooth of some sort but much different than any I have found or seen. Would love some help on IDing this one.
