  1. Pattern on South Carolina creek rock

    Hi all, i found this while while looking for teeth in a creek in South Carolina, and the pattern caught my attention. Any idea what it might be or what might have made that scale-like pattern? The rock is 1 inch in length and about 0.3 inches wide. thanks in advance!
  2. Myrtle Beach mystery fossils

    These have all been found along the Myrtle Beach coast in the last 4 months. Lots of duplicates of several different items. Locals can't seem to answer what they are. Thanks for any help!
  3. Upcoming Trip to Summerville

    Hello friends! I am going on a trip to Summerville to go find some fossils! The problem is that I had no idea where to look. Can anyone please comment or send me some specific locations where you have had luck finding sharks teeth (megalodon specifically)? I would really appreciate it if you all would help me out! Thanks!
  4. My Giant Alopiid Collection

    Hello Everyone, I’m rather fond of Giant Alopiids, and I have taken to collecting them. I find it strange that such a wonderful, yet mysterious creature remains relatively unknown and scantly studied. I may have space in my high school schedule for an independent study senior year, and I’ve considered using it to make a poster or paper on their morphology, taxonomy, phylogeny and such for The Rostrum or something. However, I’ve heard tell that there is already a comprehensive paper on giant alopiids in the works. We’ll see if there will be anything left for me to discuss. Anyway, collecting them is a slow process as they are quite rare and I am quite cheap (I have yet to find one myself). I thought I’d make a thread to show off what I have thus far and to keep them cataloged for myself. Hopefully this page will grow as time goes on Dashes are around 1 inch apart. South Carolina Alopias grandis
  5. Need help with ID. Myrtle Beach

    Could this be a whale tooth? Found in Myrtle Beach.
  6. Need help with mammal tooth

    My family are new to fossils and have been combing the beaches of Myrtle Beach. I have a few things that we found that I'm not sure of what it may be. I know this is some sort of mammal tooth but can anyone help me on identification?
  7. Hello all. I'm curious to find out if anyone can help identifying a fossil I found on the shore line of North Myrtle Beach while I was on a family vacation last week. Thanks
  8. I've recently moved to coastal South Carolina in the Charleston area. I've also recently discovered the fun of hunting for shark teeth. On my last shark tooth hunting expedition I came across this interesting piece as I was searching a local beach. I think it may be a stingray mouth plate and would like someone to confirm my suspicion. Maybe it isn't even a fossil.... it is in spectacular condition and that makes me wonder/doubt it is. Any help is appreciated.
  9. Turtle skull...?

    Hi all! I’ve been on this site before, asking about a vertebrae I found. I figured since y’all were so kind and welcoming maybe you would help me again! I was walking along the Myrtle Beach, SC this morning and saw this strange looking rock. Washed it off, and I’m positive it’s not just a rock. It looks like a turtle shell to me, but I’m not so sure. as for dimensions, I didn’t have a ruler on me, but an estimate is 3 inches long by an inch and a half at the thick end. I’ll post more photos if necessary, but it has a size limit for the post. Thanks again guys!
  10. Document Requests : Ediscetus

    Hi, I forgot to mention anyone has a copy of the following paper: Albright, L. B., III, A. E. Sanders, and J. H. Geisler. 2018. An unexpectedly derived odontocete from the Ashley Formation (upper Rupelian) of South Carolina, U.S.A. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. DOI: 10.1080/02724634.2018.1482555. Also, I wanted to see if anyone has scanned a copy of " Neogene Cetacea of the Lee Creek Phosphate Mine, North Carolina", because the publication in which this section is included carries a hefty price tag.
  11. I’m Located in Savannah, GA but take day trips to Summerville, SC often. We find very good teeth here in Savannah including Megs at our more secret islands on the banks. I usually go with my wife and son but I wanted to find better spots in Summerville to take my kid instead of taking the boat to the islands. Would anybody want to swap spots with me? I would take you on the boat to the islands we hunt from if I can get some inside where to go in summerville.
  12. Heading to Charleston

    Hi, everyone! I’m headed over to Charleston tonight, will be in the area a couple days. Never did any hunting around there but I’ve always wanted to go. I read that there’s a good starting location behind a YMCA in Summerville, and with a bit of hiking you can find other locations, so maybe I’ll start there. I saw posts from a number of people that started there and had good results, so it’s not someone’s secret location. I read that no tools are allowed when in Summerville? Even if I don’t find anything, it’s worth a shot and I’ll be heading up to the Calvert Cliffs on my drive back up to Jersey. I think I’ll check out some of the more southern spots this time- I’ve only searched off of Brownie’s Pt. Still, if anyone has any tips (i.e. don’t bother with that silly ditch behind the Y) of course I’d love to hear them. Of course, I’ll post anything I find.
  13. Unknown tooth, possibly whale

    Found this while sifting in a creek in Summerville SC. Found alongside a wide variety of other fossils (variety of shark teeth, dolphin teeth, horse teeth and other pleistocene bones) so cant pinpoint the time frame. But can't find anything that matches and thinking it may be a whale?
  14. Is this a tooth or rock thoughts?

    Hi can’t figure out if this is a rock or something else? Found on the beach in Myrtle Beach S.C. I’m leaning towards rock but would love your input.
  15. Found in sc

    Found this weekend on South Carolina Beach. Approx 2 in long
  16. ID Help - Fossils from Summerville

    Hey guys! Hoping for some help identifying a few things I found in Summerville, SC today. Thanks!
  17. Hey everyone. I’m new to this forum and pretty new to hunting anywhere other than the beach, but I’ve been venturing out to Summerville and a few creeks in the West Ashley area. I’ve found pretty much nothing except for a broken meg tooth in a well known creek in Summerville. I’m not asking for anyone’s specific hunting spot, but does anyone have some insight on other areas besides the Sawmill Branch creek?
  18. Unknown whale species

    Found out at a land site in Summerville SC so not sure what layer it came from, but was found among Megs and angustidens and a few others. Was wondering if anyone had a better guess at what species of whale this came from, my Google researching didn't really pull up anything that looked terribly close.
  19. Hey! New member here wondering if anyone would be interested in getting a group together for the weekend to do some creek hunting for megs, angies, whites, or other fossils. Message me if you're interested and know the area better than I (I'm from the upstate).
  20. Bone with Marrow preserved ?

    Hi all, I realize it would be highly unusual, but could this be fossilized marrow inside this bone frag? I recovered this piece during a South Carolina River fossil dive.
  21. South Carolina River Find

    Hello Forum, Found this river diving in South Carolina. Not sure what to make of it, looks like solid bone, like a dugong rib, except that its very small, only 4 inches. One end is broken, and solid, no marrow cavity. The other end terminates in a point, and where the pointy end is chipped, it looks like normal spongy looking bone structure. Any ideas what this may belong to?
  22. Unknown bone or tooth

    Not quite sure what I'm looking at here, looks like a bone but there are serrations on either side, is this a tooth of some sort or just a fish bone? Found alongside small shark teeth of all varieties and dolphine/whale fossils.
  23. Possible Turtle Shell from Summerville

    Hey guys! New member here from Charleston. Hoping to get some help ID’ing what I think might be turtle shell pieces and another potential fossil. Found these in a creek in Summerville along with some teeth (Chandler Bridge Formation). Thanks!
  24. Conical South Carolina Tooth

    Hi All, Happy New Year! I found this fairly beat-up tooth while river diving in South Carolina. Whats left of it is 2 1/2" long. It's too straight and skinny to be dolphin, right? Any Ideas?
  25. Unknown fossil, maybe tooth

    Found this while sifting in a creek in Summerville SC and it resembles a tooth as far as I can tell. Definitely worn down and root broken off so ID is difficult, but it looks like a damaged whale tooth, but was wondering if that's an accurate guess.
