  1. My Best Megalodon Tooth Yet!

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the forum in what feels like forever. I'd like to be active here again, and thought there was no better way to kick it off than showcasing my meg tooth! Some of you may have already seen the tooth on my Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube, but I wanted to make a post on here as well. I found the tooth last week along Calvert Cliffs. It's approximately 4.1" slant height and in near perfect condition. It even has that iconic Calvert Blue color on the crown that I love so much! I've been dreaming about finding a tooth like this ever since I started collecting a few years ago, and my dream has finally come true! Check out the pictures below and the YouTube video if you'd like to see how I found it. Hopefully the first of many great finds this year!

  6. Carcharhinus altimus tooth?

    South Florida Beach Find. Pretty sure it's genus Carcharhinus. Elongate, curved blade, singular notch and root configuration has me thinking C. altimus (bignose shark). C. acronotus was also similar, but that species tends to be small (<5 ft), apparently. The tooth is 13-14mm in vertical height, which seems a bit large for a 5-foot Carcharhinid. Thoughts?

    From the tertiary of morroco, around 4cm in length
  12. Greetings all. I hope you're ready to give 2020 a good boot in the butt to bring in 2021. I know my foot is locked and loaded. A while back I purchased this shark tooth fossil from an online auction. It was listed as a "great white". Despite the description being wrong, the price was right. I believe that Angustidens are tricky to tell apart from Auriculatus teeth. Since, and if, this is the case, would the color of a tooth, the root in particular, be enough to establish a tooth that is likely from the Suwanee River environs? From a quick web search it seems that teeth that look like this one does tend to be from the Suwanee River and are labeled Auriculatus rather than Angustidens. So maybe the quick question is, which type of shark tooth is most likely to come from the Suwanee? The seller didn't provide any location to go with the description. It just seems that the muddy brown color of the root seems to often come from the Suwanee River. Any input is greatly appreciated. Have a safe and healthy New Year, all !

  20. ID Help

    Hi. Found this tooth in Ryan formation matrix from Waurika OK. I found this tooth that looks to me to be from a shark, but does not match any teeth from this locality. It is about 3MM. Is it a shark tooth or something else. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated!
  21. Shark Tooth ID

    Hey all, I found this tooth this morning hunting in Charleston, SC. I was hoping someone could help me ID it. Is it Isurus desori? Or is it Isurus hastalis? That was my initial thought, but it is so much bigger, thicker, and robust than the other Isurus desori teeth I have found in Charleston, SC and most Isurus hastalis teeth I have found are more broad/wide. So figured I would run it past some folks here to make sure the ID is correct. Thanks I’m advance!!! @MarcoSr @WhodamanHD @BellamyBlake @Al Dente @Praefectus
  22. Isurus desori tooth?

    I have a little doubt about this one here. I have found this piece in Lučenec region, southern Slovakia. Age: Eggenburgian (Central Paratethys): so about 20.8 – 18.3 mil old. Scale is in cm. The tooth is lightly curved without any serrations. After some observations of the root and the transitional area between the tooth and the root I have ended up with conclusion, that this should be Isurus desori aka Isurus oxyrinchus tooth. What do you think?
