  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. 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

  14. 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.
  15. /Florida fossil trip 2019/

    Hey guys! I was in peace river last month and it was sooo nice! (Im from Denmark) The water lvl was too high, but it didn't stop us from finding fossils We were 3 days in peace river and 1 day with a guy at an another creek. We didn't find any meg, only fraglodons But this result is nearly better than a meg Nice gator teeth, parrot fish mouth plates and alot of other fossils! Sorry for my bad pics, but i dont have a good phone haha
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. It is close to Midnight, about an hour before I leave Syracuse for a 5hr drive to the Cretaceous of New Jersey. I tried to get some sleep around 8:30 but all I could do was toss and turn as I am excited to get one last hunt in before the new year. I am bringing a co-worker and his girlfriend along. This will be their first Cretaceous hunt. We will be meeting g up with @Trevor @The Jersey Devil and another of Trevor's friends. Unfortunately Frank is not feeling well so won't be meeting up for this hunt. The weather is supposed to be warm but is calling for rain all day. I guess we will just have to make the best of it. The only reason I am even posting this right now is because I am so anxious. The weather here in New York has been pretty bad for me too do much in the way of fossilhunts, plus I have been too busy. I am off for the next couple weeks while my company moves to a brand new building that they had built. Anyways I am sitting g here counting the minutes till I leave. The car is all packed. I hope that I am not forgetting anything. I will be sure to let you all know how it goes. Wish us luck! ( Please)
  23. Folly Beach, SC

    Well, folly Beach worked out much better than Edisto Beach for fossils. Almost no one was hunting fossils...almost. One lady had 48 very small teeth. Spent several hours pacing the Surfline watching for them to be uncovered. Fossil bone fragments were very common and not hard to find at all. The south side of the island was the best for bones frags, but teeth seemed to be anywhere in the surf according to the tooth lady. She had a running bet as to who had to buy dinner with two other people hunting teeth closer to the pier. There was a fair abundance of nice specimen modern shells to be had as well. Most are smaller but very good in quality. Totals: 7 pcs turtle shell fragments. 14 whale bone 1 broken Meg tooth 1 unknown nasal bridge 4 pcs terrestrial bone fragments. 1 Ray crusher plate 20+ copralites and phosphate nodules.
  24. What type of teeth?

    These were found at a construction site in Myakka, FL. Looking for ID on all of these please and thanks! Is the bottom one a megalodon?
  25. back to the creeks

    It's been a few months since we've gone to the creeks in Gainesville. Thanks to Pat C. who asked if we would like to join him, we went out yesterday to a new spot. With low humidity, perfect temperature and cool water , we worked our way to Pat's secret spot. After a short hike, we ended up in an area of the creek that had plenty of gravel to work through. After a few hours of sifting, everyone was happy with their finds. Hemi's seemed to be the tooth of the day, with plenty to be found. Mrs. beachbum had the best finds of the day with a pair of mako teeth in back to back screens, with the largest being 2 1/4". Along with the hemi's and mako's we found lemon, tiger and bull shark teeth along with ray barbs , verts (any ideas on the large vert?) and a couple of partial croc teeth. All in all it was a fun day hunting .
