  1. My shark tooth collection

    This is some of my shark tooth collection. I do not have enough stands to display them all.
  2. Super tricky fossil shark tooth ID

    Hi guys, I posted this tooth a few months ago with the hopes of getting an ID. I heard some people say meg, and maybe some great white and chubutensis. I dismissed it, but yesterday when sorting through some of my shark teeth, I came across another one like it. Now I am fairly convinced it is none of those species. The strange curves of the enamel near the root, the incredibly long ends of the root, the lack of a real bourlette like a meg or a chub. The teeth are too similar to a meg in shape to be a great white, and can't be megs because they have no bourlette. I figured the first one might be a weird patho, but since i have found two now, I think that is unlikely. I believe they were found in south carolina. I also was wondering if this tooth is a thresher or a hooked mako?
  3. Fossil Shark Tooth

    I found a lot of fossil teeth at a place known for its Miocene fossils. Could I have some help identifying this tooth? Thank you all for helping a novice! It is serrated by the way.
  4. 4 nice samples of Bakersfield

    I may have posted some of these years ago but here are four nice specimens from Bakersfield not the Ernst quarries and Harts park area. The make is a hair over 3 inches and very wide, the plants comes from the " fire zone" area of Harts park, the cow shark tooth is nice and clean and the Juvenile Desmostylus was from my last Ernst quarry digs. Most of my collection is back in Texas but I have these and a few others with me.
  5. Here is another big monster sized tooth I just restored. I hope you enjoy!
  6. This is my favorite restoration ever. I always find it easier to restore the root, so this was the perfect tooth for me. I have never seen a tooth with such incrediblle lines on the back of the enamel. some of the lines go diagonally to form a sort of grid. Let me know if you have any idea how that happened. I hope you enjoy!
  7. Belgian shark tooth

    Hi all, Here a shark tooth from Balegem, Belgium. From the Lede Sand formation. From the Lutetian stage of the Eocene (45 mya). I'm thinking Lamna nasus, but I'm not sure... Anyone know the species? Thanks in advance, Max
  8. I know next to nothing about shark teeth but I take it this is a cow shark? I know some of you are shark tooth fanatics who I hope can narrow down the possibilities for me. I have difficulty getting good pics of this little thing... I could try for some better ones if necessary. The tooth itself is split between both parts of the matrix. Haslam Formation (Nanaimo Group), Cowichan Valley Vancouver Isl. (my usual collecting site, up the mtn.) This is only the 3rd shark tooth I've ever found, only two of which I still have, and the only one from Mt Tzuhalem so far.
  9. Shark/fish tooth ID

    Hi all, Found this little tooth hiding in between my pycndont fish teeth from Balegem. I quickly realized that this wasn't in the right place, and it reminded me of something else. So, is it maybe a very worn Nebrius thielensi? Or is it something else? It's from Balegem, Belgium (closed location). From the Lede Sand Formation. From the Lutetian stage of the Eocene (45 mya). Thanks in advance! Max
  10. Carcharoides catticus

    From the album Pleistocene and Miocene fossils

    A well-preserved Carcharoides catticus tooth with a length of 1.4 cm from Antwerp.
  11. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of megs for the US as requested, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on a budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. I estimate I spent no more than $1,100 in total for this small collection. Tag me if there's any teeth you'd like to take a closer look at. In order: 1) Ace Basin, Ashepoo River SC 2) Lee Creek, Aurora, NC 3) Ocean teeth likely from offshore SC 4) Georgia??? 5) 7 inch+ meg fragment likely from offshore SC 6) Virginia Red Site (repaired) 7) Georgia??? 8) Virginia 9) St. Mary's??? 10) Georgia??? (repaired) 11) Summerville 12) Ocean teeth likely from offshore SC 13) St. Mary's Last photo: 6inch+ Calvert Cliffs, Maryland (restored) I'll do bone valleys for part 3 sometime soon! @ynot @WhodamanHD @snolly50 @sixgill pete
  12. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. I estimate I spent no more than $430 in total for this small collection. Anyone else out there with extreme budget rare finds especially shark teeth (or from generally exotic locations), feel free to share and I'd love to see! In order of pictures: 1) Two megs and a hemi from Isabella, Puerto Rico 2) meg from Hawaii (Restored) 3) great white from Japan 4) meg from Morocco 5) meg from Cuba (unfortunately stuck on a wood plate but still a lovely display piece) 6) meg from the Phillipines 7) cubutensis from Peru 8) 2 Makos from Mexico 9 & 10) Heavily and horribly restored 5.9 inch Chilean meg (funny story with this one had an even worse restoration on it with made it look no different from a replica, was suspicious and bought it and when attempting a horrible derestoration process and a few slight touch ups of my own a large chilean meg was hiding under the mess, still needs a tad bit of work but I still love I was able to snag a large one cheap in this day and age ) @WhodamanHD Here we go uploaded !
  13. Hi everyone, I am looking for some matrix that is the hard kind that won't break or dissolve. I am going to glue teeth to it. I have some 3/4 complete megs that I am willing to trade for it.
  14. A birthday present

    Hi all, Today, I got a special present: my biggest meg tooth so far! And my second too (I'm kinda behind with them). With very nice serrations, this one is definitely one of the highest quality fossil shark teeth I have now. I think it's a "jet black" one. Oh, and the measurements are (longest tip to root distance): 8.3 cm (which is 3.3 inches). Not the biggest tooth, but still a nice one. Just wanted to share this beauty with you all Best regards, Max
  15. Is This a Shark Tooth?

    Found this a number of years ago on some private property along the Missouri River in southeastern South Dakota. The area has a lot of buffalo remains, and some bivalves and shark fossils. This looks like nothing else I've seen before, and I believe it's a shark tooth. Is this a shark tooth? If so, do you know what kind? It's about the exact size of a camera SD card, or slightly bigger than a quarter. The image shows it from three different angles. Thanks for your help!
  16. Hello all, I recently received some megalodon teeth from Puerto Rico, the other one is ok but this one was found in fragments and held together by tape. I am wondering what will be a good way to repair the fragments for now, would super glue be ok to use or is there something else I should use? Since its from a rare locality I want to stabilize it as best as I can before I decide or not to fully repair it.
  17. Hi Everyone, I recently came into possession of some megalodon teeth that are absolutely perfect for restorations. They started out as 3/4 complete teeth. This one ended up being 6 11/16 inches which is my biggest tooth ever! It has some really nice serrations on it all of the way around. I did restorations to the tip, severe enamel peel on the front and back, blade near the bourlette, and lots of reconstruction of the root.
  18. So I have these 2 incomplete shark teeth that I find really interesting and you might too as they almost look shredded/exploded. Finding perfect teeth is the goal but these hold my imagination and I only run across these kind once in awhile. So they are surface finds from Manatee Cnty, Florida. Miocene to Plio-Pleistocene in age? Neither has a root and the interior sections of the teeth are eroding and pieces of the enamel are still hanging on, especially the meg. Do you think this sort of delaminating is suggestive of just poor preservation--can any particular taphonomy/history be inferred? I've seen a couple other threads about this subject but I throw it out there for these two examples. I havent found smaller tooth shark examples doing this but I suspect they are out there and may just be not as sturdy to survive. I do have several completely small hollow examples but these seem different. All comments/speculation welcomed on these 2 teeth. Thanks. Regards, Chris
  19. Fossils & Artifacts

    Not many fossils on this hunt but plenty of artifacts. Did manage to find one good size mosasaur vert and one pristine shark tooth. I ran into a mother hog and her babies, numerous other herds of hogs, snakes and more spiders than you can count. I also sunk in mud & water up to my chest and I'm 6ft 4 lol. North Texas creek hunt.
  20. North Sulphur River

    Fun North Sulphur River Texas hunt. The big Tylosaur tooth and coprolite were my favorite finds of the day.
  21. Six-gill cow shark

    A nice upper shark tooth from the six-gill cow shark, from Chile. Possibly from a male. One cusp is missing (far right in first photo).
  22. I found a very nice variety of items while hunting my new favorite creek. I think the formation is Eagle Ford. I found a nice ammonite bed that I"ll start checking after a good rise. I had to leave the 50 lb + ammonite until I can get a boat or raft in there to float it out 2 miles. The old US military button was my favorite find of the day. The button is 1902 or later but still very old and makes you wonder how it ended up there? Two of the shark teeth are pretty big.
  23. Shark tooth

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    My first shark tooth found on the Zandmotor, from the Eocene. Unfortunately, it's too worn to give it a species name.
  24. Bull, dusky, other?

    Hi everyone, After doing some research, I found this awesome forum. I'm new, but after doing a little bit of research I was wondering.. Is this a bull shark tooth, dusky tooth, or other? The tooth was found today on the Eastern side of Dauphin island, Al by the fort. Thank you so much! VID_20170729_231443.mp4
  25. Shark tooth from the Zandmotor

    Hi all, Yesterday, on a fun day at the Zandmotor, I found my very first shark tooth Shark teeth at the Zandmotor are kinda rare, so for me this is an exciting find. Maybe it's small, worn and has some feeding damage, but I'm still proud of it. Anyways, I would love to put a name on this one. So: it comes from the Zandmotor, Netherlands, and is from the Eocene. I'm thinking Striatolamia macrota for the moment, as I can see the small remains of a worn out cusp (4th photo). The 5th and 6th photo are extracts of a small fossil guide I have, called Zeeuwse strandfossielen , written by Harry Raad en the Zeeuws Genootschap. It's in Dutch, but if you want to translate the content you can use Google Translate. Most of the info seems to match; apart from the size. What do you think? Am I correct, am I wrong, or is this tooth too worn to be IDd? Thanks, Max
