  1. This is the nicest complete +5" specimen to come out of any quarry in Cuba for many years. That it came out of the Fines Limestone Quarry makes even more rare, this is the first tooth in over 18 months to be found there. The teeth that come out of this quarry tend to have beautiful colors and amazing preservation. Enjoy.
  2. Summerville Pays Off Big Time!

    Hello Everyone, Yesterday was my only day off from work this week and I decided that I was overdue for a nice tooth. My usual tidal spots are covered in a fine layer of silt from our recent rainstorms, so I decided to give Summerville a try. For me, productive Summerville sites are about a 30-35 minute drive which is usually enough to keep me on the coast. I've taken a handful of trips to the area, but haven't found anything particularly noteworthy...until this trip! This was a complete 'Hail Mary" trip - I knew I wanted to start with a main canal system and work through some of the deeper feeder creeks. I usually have very little success on the scouting trips, occasionally finding some reworked stuff and interesting formation. But yesterday after over two hours of hiking, spiders, knee-deep mud, and intense heat...I finally found some absolutely beautiful Chandler Bridge Formation lining a deep ditch in the middle of nowhere. I immediately got the sensation that I'd hit a virgin creek. The finds were plentiful with many, many of the usual broken shark teeth and bone pieces and a handful of gems in the mix. Of particular note are a pair of cream-colored Hemipristis serra, a stunner of a 2.2" Carcharocles angustidens, assorted vertebrae, and some associated alligator material! All-in-all it was the best Summerville trip I've had to date, and I'm excited to try some new areas in the near future. Cheers! SOSC My camera batteries just ran out of juice, so stay tuned for forthcoming close-up shots!
  3. Yesterday,I had one hour an i went to a cretaceous cliff in the picardy countryside to collect few shark tooth
  4. Hot NSR Trip!

    Hot long NSR trip. My legs are sore lol. Nice variety today including attached verts, bison tooth, mosasaur verts, multiple fish jaw sections, turtle shell, gastropods etc.
  5. 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
  6. Restored 6 1/16 inch megalodon

    This tooth has restorations done to the tip, enamel peel on the back, and the corner of the tooth on the right side was missing.
  7. North Texas Mix

  8. 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 !
  9. Various shark teeth?

    Hi, so I found a little Altoid tin at my dad's of what looks like shark teeth. There also appears to be some tiny vertebrae. I have no idea what they are or what they're called. They appear to be in really good shape. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
  10. Shark Trace Fossil

    There has been much debate about the identity of this strange item on the forum. I finally solved the mystery thanks to the (click next) Calvert Marine Museum web site . These are a reasonably common find on the beach near Matoaka Cabins. They vary in size and shape, owing to the different species and ages of the sharks that produced them as much as the teeth shed by the same sharks. What they all seem to have in common is the black, polished surface, the generally oval shape (which can vary in proportions), and the appearance of an outer coating that splits on one side.
  11. 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.
  12. No Idea...

    I'd love to know what this might be. So if anyone has any ideas, please offer them up. It was found around Giddings, Texas near a whole lot of petrified wood. The consistent response is that it's a small piece of a very worn mammoth tooth, but I just don't think so. The middle of it seems to have a flint-like quality. Thanks.
  13. Venice Beach Fossil ID Help

    Great trip with my daughter to Venice Sunday, she did pretty well. She found a good size bone and I'm unsure of what a few are. Thanks for the help in advance!

  17. Shark tooth?

    Hello, I found this shark tooth on the beach while on vacation in Sea Isle City, New jersey. It appears to be very old and light in weight. Can anyone identify? Thank you!
  18. My Shark Tooth Collection

    Hello Everyone, I've been working to fill this antique machinist's tool box with my shark tooth collection for a little over a year, and it's finally shaping up nicely. Most of the teeth and fossils are self-collected and most of them are from the area around Charleston, SC. Hopefully I'll need a larger cabinet a year from now. Thanks for having a look! The case itself - The broken/B-grade teeth- Misc. fossils (non-shark) - Carcharocles angustidens, Isurus hastalis, Isurus desori, Isurus retroflexus - Alopias and Parotodus - Hemipristis and Carcharodon carcharias - Larger angustidens & Carcharocles megalodon / Teeth from other locations- Pathologies, oddities, juvenile/posterior angustidens & megalodon - Large angustidens & megalodon -
  19. My Pennsylvanian Shark Teeth

    Over the last two years I have been able to collect a small but diverse group of shark and other chondrichthyan teeth from Pennsylvanian deposits in Illinois. Actually, all but one of the teeth are from one exposure of the La Salle Limestone of the Bond Formation- the other tooth was found in some roadside rip rap limestone in Central Illinois which seems to share many species with the La Salle, but unfortunately I have no way of determining the exact origin. Here is the first tooth, this is the one collected from rip rap in northern Champaign County. It is a cladodont type tooth, although unfortunately most of the main tooth and some of the cusps are missing. The tooth is 15 mm across at the widest point.
  20. Oxfordian shark teeth

    Hello everyone, I am working on my dissertation (finishing bachelor degree) focused on jurassic (oxfordian) fossils from Brno Hády quarry (central Europe, Czech republic) and I need help with shark teeth identification. There are 2 photos from my friend attached - he collected the longest shark tooth I ever saw from this site and an interesting "double tooth", which may belong to Hexanchiformes perhaps ? I have collected about 40 shark teeth, which vary in lenght (1-18 mm), but overall seem pretty much same to me. Some of the teeth are broken and eroded, but about 27 shark teeth are, I would say, good. I have made a Shark teeth album on my flickr account recently and would appreciate if you could take a look at the photos and tell me your opinions. Could all of these belong to Sphenodus sp. ? Two shark teeth from Brno Hády site were described in 1936 by Oppenheimer - Sphenodus longidens. Since then, nobody posted a single work about the teeth found there, even though they are way more common there today then in 1930´s. I am going to collect more samples, borrow samples from my friends and friends of my friends and compare them. Then, I am going to take some better photos of them all, describe the anatomy and see, what I can do (hopefuly I will come with some conclusions). I would like to make a good job even though that I am not going to be a paleontologist. And before all of this I would like to ask you about your opinions. (The problem is, that there is nobody in Czech republic who would currently specialize in jurassic Selachinomorpha - and I am not going to be a specialist myself, as some people would like me to. I am not going for master degree and would not like to spend too much time with sharks, because there are also BIvalvia, Brachiopoda, Cephalopoda, Echinodermata and micro-fossils I would like to process. I am not going to be a paleontologist, since I have a job in local observatory and I am perfectly happy about it. I am not asking anyone to do my job. I am just curious if there is someone with experience in shark teeth identification, who could tell me his/her opinions.)
  21. Shark Teeth ID

    Spent a few hours at Flag Ponds Nature Park near Calvert Cliffs, Maryland and found a few shark teeth. I'd be grateful for any help identifying these last two teeth. The first looks a little meg-like but is very small (perhaps posterior??) and the second smaller tooth has very interesting notches on either side of the tooth - I thought this might be Bronze Whaler. Thoughts?
  22. Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible shells - but I made it, grabbed a very nice C. madisonius with some little barnacles atop of it. As I'm climbing down I spot something embedded in the rock/hardened clay and got so excited I literally laughed out loud. MEGLADON TOOTH! -This I was not expecting, but welcomed! I pried it out, really neat color and sadly chipped away about a third - but still in good condition and a promising sign as I looked around and also found two beautiful little great whites almost pearly white! Such unique colored teeth for this part of eastern NC as normally my finds, like GMR, are darker grays and blacks and then you have the aurora teeth and hour east that these appeared more like in color but still different. I would love to know the minerals responsible for this coloration here. Anyhow, I returned with my Good digging partner, Rick, Sunday and we found a few more things that were alright. More to explore - more to come I'm sure!
  23. South African shark tooth ID

    I just got this interesting white shark tooth, it was found somewhere on the west coast of South Africa. It has beautiful wavy edges, and looks to represent an early example of either escheri or hubbelli/carcharias. Id love to hear some thoughts on what lineage this tooth would be from given its location. Also, what species would you assign it to? cheers!
  24. The bad weather gave me time to spend some time classifying. so i spent some time on my albian stuff. Everything has been self collected (surface collected) over the years. Everything is also small, so i chose the screws cases to store them. Everything can be seen on a dedicated galery on TFF : here or in higher resolution on my flickr : here 8 cases... So here we go Ammonites : (3 cases) then crustaceans (2 cases) : Other inverts (2 cases) : And last one : vertebrate remains I hope you enjoy it. that's all for now.
