  1. 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.
  2. /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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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)
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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 .
  13. 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
  14. Hit the Big Brook area the other day. It was awfully hot but at least the brook offered some relief. Hardly found any shark teeth (I never do) but Belemnites were plentiful. Lot's of different bivalves as well. Sad to see that people were aggressively digging into the river bank when it's posted not to do so. Once the land owners bring up collapsing river banks due to fossil hunting I wouldn't be surprised if there were more restrictions implemented.
  15. New Jersey Hunt

    Summer is here, Yay! I haven't been as active on the forum lately as I usually am. Now that summer is in full swing there are many things to do that keep me away from fossils. It has been very hot and humid the past few weeks so I haven't done any hunts in awhile. But on tuesday I managed to sneak in a short hunt at Ramanessin brook with my family and met up with @frankh8147 on our way home from Ocean City. We arrived around 2pm and Frank met us at the school parking lot. After a short walk we got down to the stream and frank took us to a spot that he felt would be productive. While we sifted for goodies Frank shared his knowledge of the area with us. He also shared a few of his finds with Devin, who for some reason just couldn't find anything and lost interest quick. Granted nobody was finding a lot but Frank, Dylan, and myself were finding things here and there. Frank had to leave after a couple hours and we had to get back on the road shortly after. Our finds mainly consisted of squalicorax, mackeral and sandtiger teeth. But on my way out I mananged to dig up a portion of an ammonite whorl that I think is pretty cool. I had fun for the short time we were there. I wanted to say thank-you to frank for meeting up with us, sharing his knowledge and helping Devin out. It was highly appreciated! Hopefully someday I can return the gesture. Here are pics of our finds. Plus a pic of my shark souvenir from OC.
  16. Hi everyone! It’s been a while, but I finally made it back out fossil hunting! Missed being here! Here are a few of my pickings from Memorial Day on Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. As you can see there are lot of small shark teeth. Most are broken unfortunately. The large piece is a mystery. At first glance it looks similar to the mammoth enamel I have found in the past, but what do you all think??? It has a smooth surface on one side, and a slightly pitted surface on the other. Worn by the elements and/or stained? I can’t tell what this is. There are a few smaller unidentifiable pieces, too. One has what appears to be two triangular shapes on top of each other. No clue! The other small piece has the appearance of (bone?), but the feel of rock. The large black piece? Flint maybe? Any help would be appreciated!
  17. Bull Shark Teeth or Other?

    Hello, I posted some photos in a different area and was directed to use this group for IDing fossils. Here are several photos of 3 teeth from Folly Island (SC) that I picked up this weekend. I believe that 2 of the 3 are Bull Shark teeth...but which ones? And what is the other shark represented here? The serrations on the tooth on the left in the 1st photo are more pronounced than the other two. But the root / root lobe of the 3rd tooth differs from the other two. I hope the photos are sufficiently detailed. Thanks in advance!
  18. Great White Shark Teeth ID'd

    Hello, Collected some teeth at Folly Beach (Charleston, SC) this weekend. Looking to confirm ID for what I believe are Great White teeth. I hope the teeth photos are detailed enough. Thanks in advance!
  19. This past weekend I was at Folly Beach SC (near Charleston). I posted a picture of my finds earlier but added a few more specimens. I'm hoping to get some assistance identifying what shark species these teeth belonged to. The smaller ones are a mix but I'm most interested in the teeth within the white boxes. I'm pretty sure that the Sand Tiger teeth are indeed that. The top 2 Tiger Shark teeth are pretty obvious. Is the bottom tooth a Tiger Shark or perhaps a Thresher Shark? What I'm most unsure of are the Great White teeth. I'm confident that the top 2 are indeed Great White teeth. What about the 4 bottom ones? As a size reference the largest Tiger Shark tooth is 27mm across and 20mm in height.
  20. Shark teeth ID

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina, help appreciated
  21. Tiny shark teeth ID

    These little guys keep popping up in my collection as I sift through attempting to identify all of my teeth, I'm thinking small extinct tiger shark teeth but I always have trouble with the little ones. Any help appreciated-found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  22. rapp Creek hunting

    Returned from Singapore (where I gave a young teacher my collected teeth for the last few years). The area where I had been hunting had been covered by a sand-fall. I worked a bit trying to uncover, hoping for some interesting treasures but only came away with the "usual" and the small teeth were more broken and more slanted to triangular bull/ dusky triangular than the more common sand tiger 'spikes'. Some round drum bones, imperfect ecphora, skate teeth and small turtle(?) pieces. Nothing exciting, but good to be out again.
  23. Hey everyone! I haven't posted on the forum for a looonggg time, but here I am again Winters in the Netherlands and Belgium suck, and hunting in the freezing cold isn't everything, so I was very happy that the weather is finally getting better, just in my vacation from university! Took the opportunity to go hunting right away, and we certainly didn't regret it (although we didn't expect to find much!) We went hunting twice and I hope we can go a few times more next week Our best find was probably a S. microcephalus, couldn't be happier when I saw it! It's our first of that species We also found a C. escheri, which is a first too (love the little cusplets on this tooth) We came across a N. cepedianus in our sifter too, and although we found some specimens of that species before, this is probably the most whole and perfect of them all! Will be continued in next post
  24. Show me your Sassy Sandtiger

    I figured that while we are on a show me your sharkteeth kick, why not show some of our specail sandtiger teeth The poor sandtiger hardly gets any press, but they can still be a nice addition to any collection. Here is my absolute favorite. It is another Brownies beach special. When I found it in the surf it was a dark black/grey color. But when it dried out I got a blue/tan mottled blade with a brown root. Also the root is kind of oversized for the blade. It has some wicked cusps as well.
  25. Micro teeth identification

    Hi everyone, I have been going through and organizing all the matrix I have stored in my garage. Slowly washing, drying and sifting trough. My son is getting a kick out of it! He has his own fossil corner now just for him. We started out rinsing Aurora, NC matrix and then moved on to some from Texas. I can not recall where in Texas the matrix came from, my labels had deteriorated. We have been looking through our books and online for identification of the two teeth I posted. If any can help with this, please do. The first tooth is from the Aurora, NC matrix (Miocene/Pliocene). 3mm in length.Texas tooth. About 1mm. Ray tooth?
