  1. Hi everybody, I recently leased a piece of land that contains the round mountain silt formation (shark tooth hill). Part of the deal with the landowners was to donate a portion of the finds to museums or schools. Does anyone know of any institutions that would be interested in accepting sharks teeth and other fossils? I would need a formal letter of acceptance to provide documentation. Please let me know, thanks Jesse
  2. Caledon State Park fossils

    I thought I would share some photos of fossils and an arrowhead I found over the last few years from Caledon State Park in King George County, Va. I know of no other posts anywhere discussing fossils located at this site in Va., although, the fossils at this location along the Potomac River are not very abundant. Sometimes I go down there (1.9 mile hike on a dirt road to the beach) and find nothing. More typically, if you search for 2 hours along the beach there, you will typically find a few small shark teeth; on a good day maybe 10 teeth. Every now and then, one may find a small bone fragment and every once in a while an arrowhead (I’ve only found maybe 2-3 arrowheads here). The fossils are Paleocene in age (66 to 56 million years ago). My best finds are a few Otodus sharks teeth shown in the photos. I might mention that I went to this park probably 25 times before I found even 1 Otodus tooth, so these are very rare at this location.
  3. Went to Venice for a bit this afternoon assuming we won't have beach days with Irma headed our way. I had some nice finds and a beach almost all to my self. Two thing I'm unsure of, one I'm assuming is part of a turtle shell, the other I'm unsure of. Thanks for any help
  4. With the wind/wave forecast for eastern VA this weekend showing NE 10-15 knots, Mrs.SA2 and I decided to forgo boating on our fossil hunting expedition. Fortunately, one of our buddies has access to a really nice spot where you can walk in, so we went with him on Saturday. Turned out to be a very nice day and a great 5 hour walk along the beach. We really need to hunt/collect with him more often. When we got to the parking area there was already 1 car parked and the person was well ahead of us. Normally, we would be concerned but since we arrived 3 hours before low tide, we figured we would be OK and made our way to the beach and started our trek upstream. Wasn't long and we ran into the guy who had beaten us to the beach heading back to the car. He must of come out at the crack of dawn to already be done this far before low tide. After about 10 mins of walking, Mrs.SA2 started on a roll and was finding some beautifully colored hastalis. Here are a few in situ shots of some of her finds. Not to be out done, I lucked out as the tide was waning and found this beauty. She's on the small-ish side and has feeding damage to the tip, but finders can't be greedy and it was the biggest tooth found on the day. By the time we made the turn and started back towards the cars, we realized there were several groups of people between us and the starting point. This meant some competition for the fossils heading back. Here are photos of most of the teeth, the cetacean ear bones and the fish / shark verts we found. I'll post photos of our other finds a little later. Time to take Mrs.SA2 for a paddle in the kayaks on the reservoir for some exercise. Hopefully, we can spot the breeding pair of bald eagles that are now making the reservoir and our neighborhood home these days.
  5. Big Brook - August trip

    I'm thinking about taking my 7 year old to Big Brook for a fossil trip in early August. I've seen a few guides online, but nothing is recent or that specific. Can anyone tell me what current conditions are like? Our plan is to park at 95 Hillsdale Rd., Colts Neck, NJ and then follow a path to the creek, wade, and look for gravel beds to start sifting. Any more specific suggestions? Thanks, Brian
  6. Sharks teeth that are gray multicolored.

    OK I was curious about the sharks teeth in this photo that are grayish multicolored, I've never found any like this before. I was just wondering if the multicoloring would identify it as a specific type of shark or is it just a sign of aging? These are all from the same Creek - Post Oak in Sherman. I found a lot that are like multicolored they're really pretty. Thanks.
  7. Shark Tooth-KDH NC

    Hi my name is Jerod. I'm new to this, or any, fourm so I'm not really sure how this works but I found this fossil in a shell bed while looking for sea glass in Kill Devil Hills NC. Thank you for your input.
  8. Sharks teeth in Michigan

    We recently went camping in Port Huron, MI and found 7 sharks teeth. Last year a boy found a megalodon tooth in the port Huron river. We were near Lake Huron. Crazy right?!?
  9. We spent the week on Edisto Beach this past week and found a decent number of little sharks teeth. The first surprise was not 1 but 2 great white teeth. Those are the first great whites that we have found on the beach in the last 5 years on Edisto. The next surprise came to my girlfriend when I used the big great white to propose. It was perfect, her first reaction was to finding a huge tooth, the second reaction was to a "ring stuck to it", the third reaction was realizing that I put it there for her. She only had a moment of disappointment when she realized that she didn't find her own tooth but that quickly disappeared and she said yes!
  10. Went out to a quarry in Eastern North Carolina last week, with all of the rain that we had the previous day I was pleasantly surprised that they still allowed us in. My favorite find of the day was the stingray barb. It measures over three inches long and has a nice gray color. Random tooth Found several crocodile teeth. The whole mess. Saw several nice Megs found by other hunters. Had a nice hunt, searched and every once in awhile found a nice fossil.
  11. Can you identify this shark tooth?

    Hello TTF members! I have recently purchased a supposed "baby megladon" tooth at a pawn shop but I know it was an all-out scam for tourists. The reason I bought the tooth was because of its sheer size compared to the other shark teeth there, and because sadly it was the only real one I could identify. I'm guessing it came from a shark in the Otodus (Am I saying that right?) genus. I also purchased a few other teeth, but I don't feel any need to identify them because they are all mixed fragments.
  12. April Fools Day Trip in VA

    April Fools Day I took my wife, our buddy and his son @Daleksec and 2 local Paleontologists on the boat along the Pamunkey River for a little fossil hunting and stratigraphy lesson. Unfortunately, we had heavy rains the day before which drove up the water level a few feet and kept us from exploring the site where Daleksec found his February VFOM . Here are 2 photos of Daleksec's and his dad's finds, all collected in about an hour. This was a new spot for me that I had never collected before but the Paleontologist who is the stratigraphy expert put us right on the spot. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! The first 3 teeth found were pre-megs in less than 5 mins. This area we collected is Lower Calvert Formation (Miocene) sitting on Old Church Formation from the upper Oligocene. We also hit another spot that has a nice Piney Point exposure from the middle Eocene with Old Church and Calvert above. @Daleksec collected some of the oysters from the Piney Point and found this in the matrix when he cleaned everything up. Pretty impressive. He also found a sand dollar but destroyed (and I do mean DESTROYED) trying to remove it from the matrix. Remember @Daleksec, patience my young apprentice, patience. :-) Perhaps @sixgill pete or someone else can help identify it. All in all, not a bad day on the water. If I'm honest, any day I get to spend fossil hunting with my wife is a great day. I'm very fortunate that she has the same passion, though i do remember a time when I had a 10 handicap in golf. Obviously, we will be exploring the new spot some more in the near future. Don't worry @MarcoSr, I will definitely show you the new spot, after I blindfold you of course. :-) If @sixgill pete ever makes it up this way I would show him too, with the blindfold of course. Cheers, SA2
  13. From the album Florida Shark Tooth Hunting March 2017

    This was the prettiest tooth found on our Florida trip and is in perfect condition, it either belongs to the dusky or bull shark species and was uncovered on a private beach in West Palm Beach, Florida. (The next three photos are of the same tooth).

  16. small non-hemipristis

    Yesterday the tides were very far out in the bay. I think the multiple days of winds blowing south did it. Finding things at Brownies/Bay front park was difficult because it's been picked over. I think the tide has been abnormally low for multiple days now. I did find this small tooth at the end of my searching. It is the tooth in the upper left corner of the two pictures. I'm pretty sure it is not a hemipristis, as the shape is not right. Am I looking at a very small Meg? thanks for any help.. It is about 1 inch long on the diagnol
