  1. Unidentified vertebra

    A friend of mine sent me some photos of a really strange bone, and I believe it is a part of a vertebra. It was found on a dredge island across the river from the Wando shipping terminal in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. I collected at the terminal for a couple of years so I know that the only fossil formations found there are the Ashley formation (late Oligocene marine exposure) and some unknown late Pleistocene formation. The processes on this vertebra (if it is a vertebra) are really strange. The primary mammals from the Ashley formation are cetaceans and dugongs, but this does not look like it belongs to either one. There are also some large fish, like billfish and sawfishes. Does anyone have any idea?
  2. One day I’ll learn to differentiate between phosphate nodules and fossils, today is not that day. Thanks for any input you have, this object appears to have symmetry on all sides, is it a fossil? I found it on the beach in South Carolina.
  3. South Carolina Beach Sifting

    Hi, I understand SC is pretty strict with using implements to dig around on state lands, like creeks. However, does anyone know how this applies to public beaches? I would like to hunt Folly. Can I dig into the sand with a shovel to sift through with my sieve? If not, can I use my hand to load up the sieve? I'm questioning whether a sieve can be used at al.
  4. Is this a tooth?

    I found this fossil on the beach tonight. It looks sort of like a mammoth tooth but it’s much smaller. Can anyone help me? Thank you!
  5. Hi everyone, For a long time, I've wanted to find a Megalodon tooth. I'm from Toronto, where they don't exist. However, I have a trip to the South coming up, where I understand there are some prime locations. It's a trip primarily for business, but I'll have one full day to spend on my Megalodon hunt. I would therefore ideally want to pick a single site. I did my research and my understanding now is that some of the beaches near Charleston, SC are prime. It would be helpful to get some first-hand accounts from you guys, though. The blue area is where I'm already planning to go. Suggestions for Megalodon sites in that range are preferable. The purple area is where I can extend my trip if the sites therein are meant to be particularly fruitful. I would appreciate any suggestions on the most promising Megalodon-hunting areas in this region. The only real barrier is that I won't have access to a boat, so anything offshore isn't doable. Thank you, Bellamy
  6. Possible scute

    I found this in a phosphate mine in Dorchester county South Carolina. I’ve had people tell me it’s a crocodile scute but also and alligator and also a glyptodon. I think croc but I’m pretty new so really have no idea what to believe. The indents on the top look like a croc or alligator scute but there is no ridge on the top like you see in the croc scutes however there is pretty pronounced u shape indent in the bottom. Thanks for any insight and thank you for having me!! dave
  7. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
  8. Hey everyone. I have recently gotten my family into the study of paleontology, but so far, we've only bought fossils online. i.e fossilera. For spring break planning on going Sharks teeth hunting in Summerville South Carolina and are looking for good spots to find sharks teeth and other things. Does anyone here have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
  9. These were found river and creek side in Charleston, SC. I believe the first three are teeth and the last two are bones. I’m suspecting mammal on most if not all, I’ll put my guesses with them. 1. Not sure what these are from but appears to be a jawbone with teeth if I had to guess. 4cm x 2cm 2. The closest thing I can place this to is a tapir, but I’m not sure which end attached to the root and which was the chewing surface. I think the blurrier photo (#2) may show the chewing surface at top left. May not be a tooth at all but it really looks like it to me. 4cm x 2cm continued in next post due to image sizing
  10. What Is This?

    Hi, my wife found this on a recent trip to Myrtle Beach, SC. Hoping someone could identify it. It’s basically a round rock with the impression on top. Thanks guys. I also found this cork screw shaped object. Let me know if you different angles.
  11. I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at but I know it's a fossil. I found it while scanning the beach for bottles in the lowcountry of South Carolina. About 6cm give or take. Looks to have been broken prior to falling off or death but I don't know for sure.
  12. Hi my name is Elias and I am new to the Forum! About a week ago I found a large piece of what looked to be fossilized bone, on Folly Beach SC. Upon further examination I noticed that it seemed to have a solid light gray center surrounded by a ring of bone. Further research has led me to believe this may be a chunk of Mastadon tusk, however the specimen is so beaten up it is hard to identify any Schreger lines. I am much more experienced in Cambrian and Ordovician fossils, and have just recently begun exploring fossils of the Pleistocene Epoch. I would appreciate any help on identifying what this is, and can send more or clearer photos if necessary! Thank you so much for your help! Elias
  13. Tooth

    Hey guys I found this 2 days ago, on the same place as the other ones, Pleistocene deposits south of Charleston, I was wondering if I could get this tooth identified. It is for sure carnivore. (it is hollow on the inside as well) Sorry guys I tried to crop and brighten but it didn't work out. Thanks, Wyatt
  14. Ice age fragment

    My father found this today, it is in a spot that has Pleistocene fossils. He seems to think that it is something special, he even thought that it can be a chunk from the sabre from a Smilidon. In my opinion it is at most an unidentifiable fragment. the location is on a beach by Charleston. Thanks so much, Wyatt
  15. Pathological angustidens?

    Hi guys recently acquired this tooth from SC does anyone know what to is as the blade is seemingly mostly complete thanks in advance
  16. Mako Isurus oxyrinchus (desori)?

    Hi I would like to get an id on this beautiful tooth that I just found in NMB,SC. One side of the root is significantly longer that the other side. The blade curves "in" near the tip. In my limited experience, it looks like a short finned mako lower tooth. It is 2 1/16 in slant height. The center of the root protudes out. What distinquishing factors will lead to an identification for this tooth? Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks
  17. Unknown Fossil

    I found this fossil while at Myrtle Beach, SC last July 2019. Could someone help to identify? I am an just an amateur fossil hunter. Thank
  18. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    I recently found this shark tooth on the beach in Wild Dunes, South Carolina. Can anyone help me identify what kind of shark this is from? Age of the tooth?

  20. What is the etiquette on returning to spot shown to me by a fossil hunting guide? Last year a guide took me and some others to a nice creek in South Carolina. It's really the only spot I know of. Is it okay to return to it on my own, or is that frowned upon?
  21. Fossil or rock/mineral

    Found these while sifting in a creek in Summerville SC. Not sure if this a fragment of a tooth or some sort of rock/mineral growth. There's some strange layering on them and I havent seen anything like it before. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
  22. Weird shape on a rock

    Before we crack this open - I wanted everyone’s opinion on this rock we found. Located off the Catawba River in Rock Hill, SC in a dried up creek.
  23. Bone found in SC creek

    Found this little fossil today in a creek in South Carolina Lowcountry. Not sure what it is and the curvature is and turns in it made me curious what it could be. Any thoughts? Thanks, John
  24. bone of some sort?

    I found this on the beach in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I'd like to find out what it is and how old it is.
  25. What fossil is this
