  1. Shark tooth in florida

    I found this shark tooth in Lantana, Florida (Southeast Florida). Was wondering what kind it is thanks!
  2. I will be making a trip in early August to both the Big Brook area of NJ and from there driving to Penn Dixie. I love shark teeth as you might have guessed, and welcome any recommendations on spots. I am aware that many articles have been written about the area. I am also hoping for some good recommendations of spots between the two sites in order to break up the 7 hour drive. Any advice is welcome. Thanks! best, Matt
  3. Shark tooth

    I found this tooth with shells from the Plio Pleistocene, I'd imagine that it'd be from the same time frame? I'm awful at shark teeth, any help is immensely appreciated. (I forgot to put Fl.)
  4. Lee Creek Odd Tooth

    I had the pleasure of collecting at the Lee Creek Mine back in 2002 and am going through my finds now. I can't find anything similar to this tooth. In full disclosure, I plan to either sell, or donate, this as a recent move leaves me without space for my collection. Thanks Dave
  5. Shark Tooth Changing Color?

    Hey guys, not really sure about this because I've never seen it happen, and I cant find anything online about it. One of my recent Great White tooth finds has started changing color. I haven't tried cleaning it whatsoever either. When it was found, it was a grayish black. Now it has some very prominent light brown colors coming out in it. Is there a good reason for why this might happen? Not sure if its normal or not. Just do not want it to become damaged. Here's a photo showing the coloration that is becoming more and more visible.
  6. Delaware seashore

    I was looking for sea glass for my wife when my 7 year old says "here, put this shark tooth in your pocket ". I was fully ready to just toss it back down because sharks teeth aren't at this beach, or so I thought.
  7. We got out for another dirt road hunt here in Florida the other day which turned out to be pretty successful. We found a few nice little teeth, some with matrix still attached (which I love). It was HOT outside, though! We had to leave the AC and vehicle running, then just hop out anywhere that looked good and shoot right back to the vehicle. It had to be in the 90s, but with the humidity, the heat index definitely made it feel even hotter...We also had a dodge a nasty little thunderstorm which is typical for Florida when it's that hot outside. For those of you who don't want to watch a vid, here's a snap from it showing some of the shark teeth:
  8. Goblin or something else?

    Found this tooth at Waco site. Del Rio formation, Albian.
  9. Need a little help identifying these teeth

    Okay so I found one tooth that I know for a fact is indeed a shark tooth, however, I am still a little skeptical about the second one. It has the right shape and texture to it as well as what appears to be a root line. I also added a photo that compares the broken tips of the two, and the inner portion of them seem to match pretty well, but I am not really sure if it is a tooth or not. I am really looking to identify the first tooth if possible, and confirm or deny that the second is a tooth. These were both found on my last trip to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
  10. Shark Tooth

    Does anyone know what kind of shark tooth this is? I am unaware of the geological age. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  11. Shark tooth in NC

    I found this in Havelock NC. The bigger one is 1 inch
  12. Hey everyone! I found this tooth in North Myrtle Beach while vacationing with my family. It washed up during high tide while I was playing with my kids in the surf. I’m interested in what type of shark this may have come from - my own internet searching leads me to think it is a great white tooth, though I’m unsure of the exact species (there seems to be a few different great whites). I want to know all I can find out about this tooth! I was absolutely ecstatic to find this thing, it is far different than all of the other smaller, black teeth I have found over the years. Thanks in advance!
  13. Shark tooth ?

    Hi Everyone! Fossil new guy here. Just recently moved to a beachside town in Spain. During my afternoon walk, I came across the "tooth" shown below. I'm located on the Atlantic side of Spain. The tooth was just mixed in with stones and shells along the shoreline. Any help would be great!
  14. Shark tooth

    Found Myrtle Beach South Carolina, where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. I know much of the root is missing, I can’t decide on what this tooth is. Any help appreciated!
  15. part 2 - mako? GW? hammerhead? maybe lemon?
  16. Interesting find

    From the album My Fossil Finds

    Tooth stuck in shell.
  17. Can’t figure out what shark tooth

    Can’t figure out what species of shark the tooth belongs to. A bit broken a chewed up by nature. Help is appreciated!
  18. Thought I would go to the river before it got too hot later this month. Did not have a lot of time so went to the Fossil Park north of Ladonia, TX. I usually try and avoid the park because there is always a crowd but the river is so wide there it gives you a lot of square footage to hunt. Shark teeth are not rare at the NSR but I had only found a few in my trips. Mostly the skinny black variety and nothing very big. This one was just laying there waiting to be found and made a very good photo opportunity. Nothing else much but any slow day at the river beats any day at work! Any thoughts on the type of shark this is from, is about 1 3/4" overall. Thanks
  19. Shark tooth

    Hi friends, I didnot post any thing since some time ..it is to hot to go fossil hunting but i went any way and found this large shark tooth it is 4 cm long and 2.5 cm wide at the root > Can you kindly help me identify what shark sp.it is Thank you, very much.
  20. Shark tooth fragment found on beach

    I’m eager for some help identifying this shark tooth fragment I found while beach combing on Hilton Head, SC. I’ve found many, many sand tiger shark teeth here over the years, but this is by far the largest. It’s only a fragment, but the size with the huge nodule on the root is so very different from what I usually find on the beach. Is this indeed from a type of sand tiger shark? I’d love to learn more about it.
  21. Shark tooth from Bone Valley

    Hi all, I bought this nice small shark tooth at a market in Middelburg, Netherlands. It's from the Bone Valley, FL, USA. From (I think) the Peace River Formation, Miocene, 9 mya. Anyone know what species it could be? If more pictures are needed let me know! Thanks in advance, Max
  22. Shark tooth from Zeeland

    Hi all, I bought this small tooth at the market of Middelburg (Netherlands). It's from somewhere in Zeeland (south-west Netherlands). The age is either Eocene (rare) or Mio-Pliocene. The sellers didn't know from which beach exactly in Zeeland it is from, which is a shame, but doesn't matter too much because basically all the teeth from Zeeland are from the same sediments. What species do you guys think this is? I know it is quite worn, but I think the condition is still good enough to make a good ID out of it. No signs of serrations. One big cusp, and the sign of a small one on the other side. If any more pictures are needed, let me know! Thanks in advance for your replies! Max
  23. Hello everyone! Today, I do not have an identification request, but I do have a request for some specific pictures. I have been having a hard time finding side view pictures of posterior juvenile megalodon teeth. If any of you have these tiny megs and don’t mind snapping a side view picture for me, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  24. Mystery shark tooth

    Found this in the Pungo River Fm of Lee Creek (Miocene). I'm pretty sure it's a Carcharhinid, and more than likely a lower tooth, but that's all I got. Half-inch in length, smooth cusp (even under micro), strong foramen, curved root base. Maybe there is a slight notch in the blade (left side, labial view), but I can't be sure that's not a nick. My first thought was Lemon Shark, but the tooth is too triangular, and the base of the root has a very definitive curve. Then I thought hammerhead of some sort. Photos in order: Lingual, Labial, side Ideas?
