  1. Hi everyone, saturday I went on my 2nd fossil hunting trip with my fossil club to the Wienerberger quarry in Rumst in the Rupel area near Antwerp (Belgium). We hunted mainly in a thin Miocene layer dating back to the Burdigalian around 20.43 - 15.97 million years ago. We found many shark teeth, most of which are C. hastalis, but there are a few I can't quite identify as shark teeth are not really my area of expertise and I was not acquainted with the location until my visit. So I was hoping some experts could me out or someone who is familiar with the species from the location. I did send an email to one of the excursion leaders from the trip, but he admitted not being a sharkteeth expert himself either and couldn't help me much further with ID's. So any help would be welcome. So the first batch of teeth are what I all believe to be C. hastalis. I am pretty confident with my ID on them but the other teeth are a mystery for me. These two teeth are pretty beaten up. The tooth on the right has no enamel layer anymore and I doubt an ID is impossible. But the tooth on the right could be beat-up C. hastalis but I am not sure, it also kinda looks like a pretty beat-up Carcharocles angustidens. The latter can be found at the location and are usually found in the bad condition due to the fact that they were present in a now lost layer a little bit older than the one were most shark teeth were. But as said before I am not an expert and I am just purely speculating with the little info on the location I have. I don't really know how to ID these teeth. Are they C. hastalis but located on different locations in the jaws than the previous C. hastalis teeth or do these belong to a different species? Then there are these 3 teeth that I don't know how to ID We also found a few small shark teeth of which I believe they might belong to a different species than C. hastalis And then the last tooth is this one, on first sight it kinda looks like a C. hastalis tooth but when you take a closer look you can see that the edges are serrated. So I wonder whether anyone know what species this could be? Well that were all, I would really appreciate some help for their ID's Thank you in advance!
  2. Maryland trip 9-28-2019

    This weekend family had to drive to Maryland for my son Dylan's Marching Band competition in Annapolis. We drove down Friday evening after I got out of work. The crazies were out in full force during the drive down, but we managed to arrive safely despite the reckless driving that we witnessed. Dylan's school did not perform till 6:30 PM Saturday evening, so the plan was to do a hunt at Brownies for a few hours then meet my parents for lunch, then go to the Naval stadium and watch the other schools perform until my son school performed. After a rather good breakfast at the hotel we headed to Brownies. We were staying in Bowie, so we were only about 35 minutes away. When we arrived around 8:30 there were about 8 cars in the lot. We got our gear and headed out. Originally the forecast was calling for Full sun and a high of 85. So I was expecting to roast while out there. Instead it was overcast with a nice breeze, so we stayed cool the whole time we were there. There was a fair amount of people on the beach already, slowly working their way around to the cliffs. Low tide was set for around 10. The level was already decent when we got there. I noticed alot of trees were down since I had been there last which was a few years ago. Because I had my family with me, I wasnt sure how far down we would go. Once we got a little ways around the corner we began some sifting. I won't bore you with all of the petty details. But I will say that the finds were mostly small and broken. That being said, I think we all had a pretty good time. The weather was nice, moving around the debris was not too bad, and the surrounding was peaceful. My wife made the best find of the day with a decent, cetacean tooth. I was a bit jealous. She found it by digging deeper into a spot that I had already dug. It is different than the other cetacean teeth that I have found myself or have seen come from there. Devin found a few small teeth and some shells. He also grabbed a crab claw, horseshoe crab carapace and fish vert, all which are modern but he didnt care. There where alot of dead horseshoe crabs for some reason. I myself found small teeth, bone fragments, and stingray plates. We stayed till around noon then had to get going so we could meet my parents for lunch. On the way back I could not believe the amount of people back at the main beach there looked to be 100, all of which were searching with sifters! Any ways we ended up going to Fat Boys Crab Shack for lunch. The food was surprisingly good considering the outside of the building was not much to look at. Then we headed over to the Navy Stadium and watched bands perform. After my Son's school performed we had to head home. We didnt get back till 2am. Needless to say I am exhausted today. We found out later, that his school won the competition for their section and for overall. So we are pround! Here are my finds.
  3. We are planning a trip to Savannah for a long weekend. We have heard and read below about shark tooth hunting and Tybee Island beaches. However, I am only finding information regarding booking through tour groups. We would like to do it on our own, but I am having difficulty even finding information about where we can put in at. So, I don't know if it's worth loading up the kayaks or not. If anyone can provide more specific information on being able to navigate the Savannah River on our own to Shark Tooth island it would be greatly appreciated. Or if you have any other recommendations for other known places in the area, that would be accepted as well. Thank you for your help.
  4. Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with @frankh8147 once again, to hunt the Cretaceous streams of New Jersey. I arrived much earlier than expected after leaving my house by 1am. So I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and grabbed a breakfast sandwich. It was still dark when I got to the site. Frank said that he would probably get there between 7:30- 8:30 so I took my time organizing my gear. As soon as it was light enough I started heading down to the stream. I startled about 8 deer as I made my way to the trail. I really appreciate see wildlife early in the morning. This was my 3rd trip to this site. I had an idea of where I would hunt until Frank got there. So I headed upstream to where I felt would be a good start. I was surprised by how many trees had fell since my last visit. Once I got to the spot I soon got to work. When Frank first told me about this particular spot, he said that the finds were more scarce but they also tended to be more of the rarer finds. Today that proved to be true. I seemed to go through my sifter many times without a single fossil. Then every once in a while there would be something, either a sharktooth, crab claw, belemnite piece, or enchodus tooth. But nothing spectacular and most not in the best condition. I knew going in, that it being the end of summer, no rain and low water levels, there was no new material so this was not a surprise. I was hoping that when Frank got there he could find a more productive spot. After a bit Frank showed up. He told me about a couple of possible spots, not too far downstream. After awhile we tried a couple different spots and not finding too much (atleast for me, Frank had a couple nice finds, that hopefully he will share later) finally it happened, I found my first Mosasaur tooth! When I saw it in my sifter I thought it was too good to be true. I have been looking for one for 12 years. It is not big as it is only 12 mm but it is in rather nice condition. I didnt get excited till Frank confirmed ID. That is one of the things that I like about hunting with Frank. He is a good guy and he is very knowledgable. I really enjoyed hearing about the different things that he has found there over the years. We hunted till about 1pm and then it was time to head home. All in all it was a good time and I cant wait to get back. Here are some pics. 1st is the mosasaur.
  5. Fellow fossil hunters! I live in Jacksonville Beach, FL and have been collecting sharks teeth and shells on our local beaches for a decade. I have found some great teeth on the beach (mostly in the winter when the tourists have gone ) but have yet to find a megalodon tooth or even a fragment of one! My father had some beautiful meg teeth in his collection from when they would dredge for beach renourishment, St. Johns River projects, ect. So I know they are out there to find but I've never been lucky enough to come across one. Has anyone had any luck finding meg teeth in Jacksonville? If so, any tips on where to look would be GREATLY appreciated! I'm attaching a picture with a handful of my favorite finds over the years here in Jax Beach, enjoy! -Nikki
  6. Pointed oval teeth from Big Brook NJ

    I find non-Crow Shark teeth from Big Brook quite hard to ID, and this is a grouping that I just can't figure out. In the cross-section they are sort of like an oval, with a pointed edge at either end - whereas Goblin Sharks teeth seem to have a half-moon cross section. Not stubby enough for a Mosasaur, but also not enamelled and curving like the Goblin Shark. They are between 7-15mm long, and up to 4mm wide. Sorry for the mediocre photography.
  7. Is anybody interested in a straight up swap, some of your matrix for some of mine? Mine's from Abbey Wood, Kent, England. Eocene shark beds, so 54MYA shark, Ray, pike, occasional turtle, croc and very rarely (although I’ve found a few pieces) mammal. It’s been wet sieved, dried out, and totally unsearched! I'm not interested in any money crossing hands, just matrix for matrix. Apparently my photos are too large to be uploaded but can email photos of my finds and the matrix. Let me know if you’re interested
  8. Greetings friends! I am in need of shark teeth for my traveling education program. I am looking to create a display that has shark teeth showing the evolution from Otodus to Megalodon. To obtain these I am posting up for trade a Theropod claw from the Hell Creek formation that was found in Montana. Claw measures just over an inch in length. So I am in need of any of the following teeth: Carcharocles auriculatus Carcharocles angustidens Carcharocles Chubutensis Carcharocles Megalodon I need them to be in good condition to show the serrations, changing of the cusplets, and ideally all in the 2-3 inch range to make it a nice consistent sized display. Thanks y'all!
  9. Nice Mako and lower Hemi.

    Today I found the first complete Mako in a few months and I found my biggest lower Hemipristis. I also found a lot of bone today and 2 fish vertebrae. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.
  10. Fossil finds from 7/20/19

    My finds from 7/20/19. My location had lots of people on it, but surprisingly I did good. I found a corner of a meg, a nice bull shark tooth, A nice sand tiger tooth, And lots of bone. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.
  11. My Collection

    New to collecting and this site, thought I’d debut my small collection in my first post. Any comments or tips would be appreciated.
  12. Hi everyone, I'm very new to everything to do with Fossils, so bear with me. Recently i went to Antwerp, Belgium to look for some shark teeth. I found a few teeth in about 3 hours of siving. Even though most were broken, i'd like to be able to identy atleast the whole ones. I'd gladly appreciate any help i can get! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  13. Sites near Venice

    Hello! Me and my dad are going down to Venice in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on where to hunt. So far the only spot I know of is just Venice beach. I would appreciate any help you could give me! Thanks
  14. Hi everyone! I recently acquired some dolphin & shark teeth, but they weren't ID'd so I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me out if possible. The first are a set of small dolphin teeth found in Hoevenen, Antwerp in Belgium (Miocene, 15 - 10 mya) And I was wondering if they could be ID'd to down to genus? I've read Eurhinodelphis is a common find and that there are quite a few more named and unnamed species to be found there. The other fossils that I hoped to be ID'd are 5 tiny shark teeth from Oosterzele (Lede formation), Belgium (Eocenen, Lutetian, approx. 44 million years old) I've searched this website as they has a database with I believe all the species found there, but I am not confident and skilled enough to ID them properly. http://users.skynet.be/belgiansharkteeth/Lede formation/Oosterzele set.html My best guesses are that the first 3 teeth belong to the same species and the most common at Oosterzele, which are worn down Otodus auriculatus teeth. As for the other teeth I don't really know, so I really would appreciate some help and input. Thanks in advance!
  15. Big teeth at Brownies Beach?

    Hello everybody. My girlfriend and I are making one last trip to Brownies tomorrow before it costs 40 dollars for us to get in (barf). But I've had some questions about it. We have gone one time before, and were unable to get past the one little point/corner, but still found over 200 teeth, which was awesome, however most of the teeth were small, tiny even. Are there any tips or places to find some bigger teeth in the area? I've heard the farther south you go, AKA past the point we couldn't get past last time, the teeth tend to get bigger. And is sifting a viable option to finding bigger teeth? I'm not looking for Meg sized teeth, more or less looking for decent sized teeth, and maybe a bigger Hemi or two any tips for the recovery of larger teeth at Brownie's Beach/Bayfront Park is appreciated! Thanks so much! -Snag
  16. Shark teeth in Kansas

    Hello all I just joined this place so sorry if I posted this in the wrong area. Can anyone give me an idea on where to look for shark teeth in Kansas. I have found 3 at castle rock but it definitely gets searched a lot. I have asked permission on some private land in that area and everyone has said no. So how would you go about getting permission and what other areas should I check? Tia

  18. New Riker mounts

    In an effort to try to find better ways to display my sharkteeth, I recently purchased some new Riker mounts. These Rikers use clips to secure the mounts as opposed to pins as suggested by @caldigger. While I already had a couple rikers, I still had most of my collection in gem jar trays. I have decided for now to put the best teeth from different locations in the rikers. I am putting teeth from micromatrix finds, in the 1inch gem jars, and miscellaneous teeth in the 2 inch gem jars.
  19. /Florida fossil trip 2019/

  20. Calvert Cliffs

    Hello there guys. Im planning to go to calvert cliffs this Saturday 3/9/19. Any suggestions on where to go and how i can maximize my chances of finding good fossils? Ive only ever fornd shark teeth at Myrtle Beach. Any help is awesome.
  21. Cleaning or restoring advice??

    Hello hello. I'm new to this whole fossil thing! although this forum community has informed me with so much more then I could ask I still have some silly questions. Should i clean shark teeths? And how can I decide what condition my shark teeth are in? Also here are some interesting finds I found on Englewood beach, Florida. Super early on 2/20.... oh and could someone give me a run around on different colors? Like blue,orange,black, sometimes yellow. Does that go about age or shark?
  22. I figured I would give it a try. You all know I love my sharkteeth. There are two that I really would like to get my hands on. Otodus obliquus and a Palaeocarcharodon orientalis. I am looking for these teeth from any U.S. locations such as Purse state park or Douglas Point. I am not looking for big teeth or perfect but preferably something of good quality. If anyone out there has extras and doesn't mind letting go of one please contact me. Maybe we could make a deal. I have mostly other sharkteeth for trade but have other items as well. Dave
  23. Last summer I picked up a couple riker mounts and have been experimenting with different ways to display my collection. I finally decided to do a Brownies Beach Sampler. I wanted to put together a sample of all the different species that I have found there over the years. I also wanted to put in my best quality teeth, so size was not a factor. Enclosed in the mount is a Hemi, thresher, cowshark, hammerhead, angel, mako, meg, lemon, requiem, sandtiger, and two different tigers.
  24. Here I have 3 teeth from Moracco. One is 100% Natural. One has had restoration to the root. The 3rd broke, probably during extraction, and was glued back together. The first tooth is an Otodus, I bought back in the early to mid 2000's at a fossil and mineral show. One dealer had a bunch of these teeth in a box. At the time I had just gotten into collecting sharkteeth and didn't have much experience with restorations. I suspected that there may have been some work done, but at $5 a piece I figured it was not a big deal. So I bought a few for myself and my kids. If you look at the root you can see it is two tone color. The grey portion is the real part of the root the tan/white potion is were they took matrix and glue to make a mortar which was used to fill in missing or imperfect areas. This past summer I was at my club's show, and picked up tooth #2. Again an Otodus from Moracco. But this is a Beautiful all natural tooth that I picked up for $10. Look at the difference in the roots of both teeth. The 3rd tooth is a Paleocarcharadon also from Moracco. This tooth broke through the root in two places, where the cusps meet the blade on both sides. The breaks look very clean and fit back in place pretty well. To the naked eye they simply look like cracks. But upon viewing under magnification you can see the use of glue and a tiny bit of matrix used the hide the breaks somewhat. I don't know if anyone will be able to see that from my pics but I wanted to at least show what I could. None of these teeth were expensive so really don't bother me. But these are things to look for when considering purchasing more pricey fossil teeth.
  25. Still on the hunt before classes begin again next week. This weekend the boys and I ventured 5 1/2 hours north to the head of the Chesapeake Bay. So far... I should have gone back to Folly Beach! Lol. Some shells, neat iron formations, but no teeth yet. Brought the sifter this time but Calvert Cliffs isn’t the place for my old knees to carry much on a hike. Many people in competetion for fossil teeth. There were more people hunting on 180’ of beach 30’ wide than all of Folly Beach last weekend. Water is very cold and it is a tidal influenced area.
