  1. A couple shark teeth from Charleston, SC

    I'm new here, hi! I've got a few teeth from around Charleston, SC that I'm unsure about. These I'm pretty sure are Angustidens, but I just wanted to make sure. These are not very good quality pictures, but it's the best I've got (father sent them to me). Some kind of whaler species? My guess for this is Great White, but it's very narrow so I wasn't sure. Thanks for the help!
  2. Shark centrum

    From the album In-Situ Shots(various locations)

    10-12-18 Denton County, TX
  3. I have this beautiful colored Caribbean Megalodon tooth , the blade and serrations are nearly perfect, but it has bourlette, and root damage. Not sure if I should have the tooth restored, or leave it natural. I even thought about making a pendant out of it. I would love to hear some of the members opinions. Tooth is 3.75” as is.
  4. Shark tooth ID

    I FINALLY found some shark teeth today at Chippokes Plantation State Park on the James River in VA. Would you all please help me ID these 3? The other 2 I found were definitely tiger shark.
  5. Shark teeth Identification

    Are all of the teeth from the same species( striatolamia)? Or you can see some other shark species teeth? Found at walton on the naze UK
  6. Shark tooth need help with

    Purchased at a fair today since I won't be getting out for a month or so to get my itch. Need help with ID as I'm a noob. I'm thinking either Lemon, Mako, or Great White but could be completely wrong. was purchased with a Trilobite just to start the collection going. Thanks for all help.
  7. Small Pair of Fused Shark Verts

    From the album North Sulphur River

  8. FAIL!

    "The appearance of these sharks are largely unknown. However, author and illustrator Ray Troll mentions in his book, Sharkabet, about how paleontologist Rainer Zangerl once discovered a large shale slab containing a long, eel-like fish covered in long, spine-like denticles, only to have it dry out and crumble into dust. As such, according to Zangerl's account, Troll reconstructs Listracanthus as resembling a tremendous, fiercely-bristled frill shark." http://fossil.wikia.com/wiki/Listracanthus Oh my GOD!!!!!!! How frustrating!!!! To actually have uncovered an imprint of an extinct shark, one of the many holy grails of collecting, but it being destroyed, and before anyone else could even see it(and i guess before he took a picture of it:/ ). Brings a whole new aspect into the sad idea of discoveries that could, or even HAVE been made, but haven't, won't, or can't be actually discovered to science:( I wonder how many paleontologists have nightmares about that? Maybe even a common nightmare thread for the career? *by the way, these are in the edestus/helicoprion family, so maybe this is a clue as to what those guys looked like? (simultaneous to all of helicoprion's and to most of edestus' known spans...I don't know what, if anything, that might point to as far as likelyhoods of potential similarities)
  9. Shark teeth ID

    Hi everyone! Can anyone tell me for each one what are the species of these shark teeth? Also,they were found in France.Thanks
  10. I'm Back!

    I had a great day on the North Sulphur River Texas. I kayaked a few miles but found most of my quality items right by the first bridge and surrounded by tracks. The shark verts were in situ coming out of the clay. I only found 3 but I feel more will come out with another rise. I will come back and check the location. The big piece of turtle shell looked like old metal in the water so I'm sure people had been walking over it. The mosasaur tooth is nice but broken on one side. The artifacts were a nice bonus.
  11. Campanian microfossils

    Hi everyone! It would be amazing if any of you could help with identifying some marine microfossils I sieved. The origin is campanian (might be santonian) marine sediments. The location has yielded mosasaurs, fish, and sharks in abundance. But I have a few bone fragments that I have absolutely no clue what they are... Here are some of the mysteries:
  12. I bought this shark tooth.

    I was at a market in round top tx and went into a little shop that looked cool. They had a box of shark teeth and a box of spino teeth, some geodes natural beads etc I picked this tooth up because I’ve always wanted one and it was cheap. Do they fake shark teeth?
  13. Hillside trek

    The temperatures finally behaved today and dipped into the 80's. I just had to take advantage of that since it has been triple digits all Summer up until now. I quickly threw my backpack and shovel into the car and away I went. The morning started out very slow. It takes a few hours of digging and moving overburden just to clear a space to begin some actual hunting. I had been finding real small teeth for about the first two hours of digging. Then it happened! I loosened a chunk of matrix and this just fell into my hand. I have been digging in Bakersfield for a good 5 years and had never even found a trace of Megalodon tooth, not even a sliver! Today was the day. Not only that, but about 30 minutes later I found another partial broken tooth. Two rarities within an hour. Ya, I know you East coast guys are saying "big whoop". Well Megs don't come round these parts too often and certainly don't show themselves to me. It isn't the prettiest, but it is a Bakersfield first for me. I'm going to guess and say it's between the 4.5" - 5" range.
  14. Another Strange Tooth

    Can anyone give me any information on this please ? Thank you.
  15. Shark Tooth Delaware Beach

    I found this tooth on Bethany beach in Delaware. Attached is my google drive folder with photos. (Site uploader not working). I am a novice collector and would appreciate any feedback. Thanks guys!
  16. Shark tooth found this morning

    Hello, I was strolling my local beach this morning & was pleasantly surprised to see this little guy sitting at the shoreline. I live in Chelsea, Melbourne, Victoria. Was wondering what kind of shark it’s from, and roughly how old the fossil may be? Thank you in advance!

  19. Shark teeth

    I’m pretty sure the white tooth is a fossilized mako and I think the dark is a juvenile Megalodon or great white. Pretty sure it’s a meg what do you guys think?

  23. Howdy Everyone~ Went exploring on the James River a few days ago. I was able to find more fossils than usual due to the erosion caused by the hurricane recently. I have been collecting for over a year now so this (my second biggest tooth) is a lucky find I don’t come across often. My question is how often do you all come across bigger teeth? I live in the Chesapeake Bay Area in Virginia. I can usually find 20 half inch or smaller shark teeth, some bones and verts on a good day. I’m curious to know what the more expierenced folks here are finding in the state Virginia and in others states along the east coast. Thanks *tooth measured a little over 2 inches
