  1. Hi everyone, fellow Charlestonian here. I've recently got back into shark teeth hunting and have been to a few locations such as behind the YMCA and in those creek branches round there. I am posting here to ask everyone if they have any good locations they would share. I know this community is tight lipped and secretive when it comes to this, but I was hoping there would be a few individuals who didn't mind helping someone actually find some good finds. I get most sites are on private property or the individual has connections to get onto quarries (i.e. Black River Fossils), but I know there are viable locations out there that are not well known too. Thank you.
  2. Please help identify this partial tooth found at Cherry Grove Beach in North Myrtle Beach, SC. This was originally passed off as a Squalicorax, but after further review, it seems heavier and the part of the root that is complete seems different. Teeth may be posterior. Thoughts?
  3. Carcharodon Plicatilis?

    I have here a tooth from Charleston, SC, a river find. I've narrowed it down to a white shark, and based on this guide I'm torn between Carcharodon Plicatilis and Carcharodon Carcharias. I'm leaning towards the former. Could anyone please provide confirmation?
  4. Big Vert

    Any idea who this came from? Length across middle is 3 ½”; Length across top is 4”; Length across bottom is 3” x Depth of 1 ½” x Width that varies between 2 ¼” and 2 ½” (measured approx 1” in. On either end). Weight is 245 grams (Once again, I can't upload the MAIN shot, topside, so, this one may be more difficult to ID)
  5. Help Identifying a Fossil

    I need help identifying this fossil I found in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was located on the beach.
  6. What kind of bone might be, and from whom did it come? Length is 3 ¼” across top and 1 ¼” across bottom. Depth is 1 ½”. Weight is 60 grams (have another side view shot, but can't seem to upload it...)
  7. Armadillo, gator, turtle scute?

    Might this be an armadillo scute or partial turtle shell - or, just a #&!$ rock?!??: Approximate Measurements: Length across top is 3” Length across bottom is 2 ½” x 2 ½” Width x ½” depth. Weight is 135 grams.
  8. Coprolite?

    Hoping this is a big a_ _ Coprolite??! (and NOT a darn rock. LOL!) Approximate Measurements: Length 6 ½” x Width across fattest end is 3” (with a 7 ½” girth wrapped around) and 1 ½” across smallest end (w/ a 4 ½” girth). Weight is 610 grams. (Dang it. Have a pic of the backside as well as the opposite end tip, but, they aren't uploading for some reason?)
  9. What might THIS be?

    Measurements: Length is 3 ¾” across the longest side and 3” across the shorter side x slightly less than 3” wrapped around the thickest part of the girth and 2” around the tip x 1” W. Weight is 60 grams (have A 4th pic of the other tip end, but, couldn't get 'er to upload...)
  10. This guy measures 4"L x ¾" and 1" crosswise on the thicker end, and ⅝" & ⅜" crosswise on the smaller end x 4 ½" around the girth on the thicker end x 1 ½" around the thinner tip.

  13. Charleston, SC

    Hi everyone, I have here fossils found off a river bank near Charleston, South Carolina. I believe I know what some of these are, but would like some confirmation. For many of them, I have pretty much no idea. I'd appreciate any help! 1) Carcharocles Angustiden? 2) Megalodon fragment possibly 3 3) Front/back of the same tooth fragment 4) Front/back of the same tooth fragment. Megalodon possibly? 5) Front/back. Might it be a whale bone? 6) Front/back. I think many of the ones following are whale or dolphin bones. 7) Front/back 8) Front/back 9) Front/back 10) These looked similar to me, maybe fish tail bones? 11) Front/back 12) Front/back 13) Front/back 14) Front/back
  14. Please help me identify this fossilized bone (tooth? Vertebrae?) found about 1/2 meter deep, buried in the sand on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on May, 2020.
  15. Are these from the same or different sharks? Would love an ID and age. Found washed up on beach in Isle of Palms SC Thank you
  16. Same teeth different side. Messed up somehow. Sorry Isle of Palms SC beach find
  17. Oyster Shell?

    Today while searching for shark teeth, my husband found this interesting shell. Any ideas on what it might be? Port Royal, SC - The Sands
  18. Obviously with everything going on in the world I would not be going out to go on excursions, but once everything is over I would like to try and find some teeth in my spare time. I live in Irmo and was wondering if anyone knows of any nearby locations that are good for fossils. Places not nearby would be fine as well, for I am up for a little bit of a drive.
  19. What species of Shark is this?

    Found this a few months ago in a river in the Low-country of South Carolina. Tried to identify it myself but could not come up with anything. Curious as to what species you guys think it is.
  20. Fossil ID please

    Found washed up on beach in Charleston County, South Carolina
  21. Fossil ID Request

    Good afternoon everyone! I need help in identifying this fossil that was found on the beach at Myrtle Beach. It weighs 3.3 ounces. Thank you in advance for your help!
  22. Fossil hunting tools

    I am always interested in hearing about (and seeing photos of) tools used for fossil hunting. I have used all sorts and I currently received a new device for underwater viewing. It is called a Bathyscope.
  23. Went on my first excursion in a river a few months ago. Thought I would share the picture I took back then of what I got. Sorry for the messy quality of the pic. If I ever have the spare time I will take a more updated photo.
  24. Need Help IDing this Fossil

    I went out on a excursion a few months ago and I dug up this fossil. It looks like maybe it has two shark teeth within it, but it could also be a mammal tooth. I found this in the Low Country of South Carolina. Any help would be appreciated! Pictures below!
