  1. Hi TFF, Elliot and I were wandering what species of Eocene shark teeth these may be (unsure if they are Eocene). The Geology of the Bawdsey beach exposures appears to be Eocene London Clay, Ypresian age 54 mya. We found these teeth in the shingle that runs along the London Clay exposure. Shark tooth 1 view 1 Shark tooth 1 view 2 Shark tooth 2 view 1 Shark tooth 2 view 2 Shark tooth 3 view 1 Shark tooth 3 view 2
  2. Potential tooth?

    Any ideas as to what this might be from? Many thanks
  3. Storm Alex Finds

    After storm Alex hit this weekend, went out for an hour this morning to a deserted beach. Waves have been pushing against the cliffs and a few fresh falls are evident. First find was a partial Meg chunk. With a little bit of enamel left. Picked up a nice isurus by the fresh fall along with an Otodus tip. Lastly and without doubt the find of the day was this what I think is a Carcharodon Hastalis. 62mm making it the largest one I’ve found. It has some wonderful blue colours to it that the photos don’t show to well. Thanks for reading everyone!
  4. Weekends finds

    Hello all. Put in quite a few hours over the weekend in between fishing sessions. A few teeth but nothing amazing, even the locals are all struggling. Need a big storm to bring a bit more of the cliff down.
  5. Unknown Red Crag tooth

    Hello all, Found this yesterday at Bawdsey, Suffolk. From the red crag bed 3.3-2.5 MYA. Any ideas on what species it’s from? Never found one this “chunky”.
  6. flints or something more interesing?

    Hi We found these and picked them up on the basis they dont look anything like the flints in this ground. So not what they might be, any info would be appreciated like the other finds these were in a shallow valley in east suffolk under 1.5m of flinty sand and on top of or in the top layer of heavy grey clay with some chalk and slint in it.
  7. saber tooth ?

    Hi we found this in the spoil heap from sand clay flint mix dug from on top of a thick layer of boulder clay at about 1.5m in a shallow valley in north suffolk about 12 miles inland it has a clockwise twist I am hoping it is a tiger tooth but am prepared to be disappointed
  8. second find from pond no.2

    Hi We have found a second item from a pond dig in chalky clay at about 1.75m seems similar to the last find but the material is much more soft and chalky to the touch any ideas would be very gratefully received Thanks in advance Brian
  9. second find

    We found this in a pond we have dug on the site of an old pond at the juncture between the clay infill and the undisturbed clay under the old pond. depth 1.75m. Heavy clay with flint and chalk in it location Suffolk on boulder clay in the bottom of a very shallow valley I thought it was man made as it was so detailed but my my son and friend think it is a fossil so here are the pictures against a ruler showing inches and centimeters
  10. found our first fossil but need help

    Hi all Very new to this but we found this in Suffolk England in a shallow valley under 1.5 meters of sand and flint in the top 200mm of a deep layer of grey clay with some chalk and flint in it. on its own
  11. Suffolk Sharks Teeth Trip

    Hello all! Took the hounds down the local beach for a walk and thought I’d have a quick look for teeth as I was there. Sea was nice and rough with the wind coming off it pushing the waves against the cliff. Straight away I was finding lots of Isurus teeth on the tide line which had derived from the Red Crag. They often have lovely markings that look like white lightning and really are quiet pretty. Got one nice Carcharodon tooth at just under 50mm which is a nice size here. Few more bits n bobs and by that time the dogs were bored so we finished our walkies and went home! Thanks for reading!
  12. English Cliff Meg

    Hello all! Headed down the local beach after work, had a little look over the London Claybeds but nothing good was about. Headed up the beach to the red crag cliffs which have been collapsing a lot. Started looking over the slump piles at the bottom of the cliff picking up a few small teeth and bits of ray plate. Scrambled up the slump pile a little bit to the phosphate nodule bed and spotted this in the sand...oooo I thought, that looks interesting. Dug it out and with a bit of spit this soon appeared. Was only 74mm long but was in a lovely condition for a red crag tooth. Spent another ten minutes in the slumps but my hunger got the better of me and I headed home. Thanks for reading everyone!
  13. Quick Otodus Hunt

    Evening all! Had a quick trip down to the local beach after work. Was a massive tide today so a lot of the London Clay bed was exposed. Found a few smaller bits n bobs then got a lovely 62mm Otodus Obliquus, although a bit worn was still a nice tooth. After that found nothing else! Thanks for reading everyone!
  14. Another English Meg!

    Good evening everyone! Quickly headed out to the local beach after work before storm Brendan hit, few little teeth before this caught my eye. 81mm and very worn, typical English Meg. Also found what I think is a partial crocodile scute from the London clay beds? If so it’s a first for me! Thanks all!
  15. Suffolk, UK shark teeth

    Hey everyone! I'm trying to ID my shark teeth from my Bawdsey trip and I think I have a couple figured out but I'm having a hard time finding any references to Suffolk shark teeth. In the picture where they're all lined up, I think the last four are Striatolamia macrota and teeth 2-4 are possibly Cosmopolitodus hastalis. I'm not sure about #5. Number one has me wondering if it's possibly Great White. It has very faded serrations. I'll try to post photos in a way that make sense.
  16. My last fossil hunt in England

    Things have been really hectic over the last month in preparation (and actual event) of our international move. We left England on 27 September and stayed in Denver, CO for a week. We are now in Cheyenne, WY for the next 4 years. Before we left England I wanted to go on one last fossil hunt, and it was one of the best trips ever! On 23 Sept I set out for the beach at Bawdsey. It’s a mostly flint pebble beach with exposures of London Clay. It’s supposed to be good for shark teeth and it did not disappoint! Previously, I’ve only found up to 2 shark teeth at any location and that was on a miracle day. This day I found 10 and a quarter (that still counts, right?)! I found a few flint belemnites, or so they would appear. A lot of fossilized bone (the first I’ve ever found!). And some really pretty and sparkly chunks of pyrite. There is also a ton of pyritized wood, and some of the best preserved I’ve seen but I didn’t take any. Every time I found a shark tooth I would squeal with excitement. I’m glad I had the beach to myself for the 3 hours because I sounded like a kid finding hidden Easter eggs. Needless to say it was an amazing fossil day. I already miss England so much and wish I were back.
  17. English Meg number 2!?!?

    Well following on from my post yesterday, I headed down to the same beach after work again. This time with no lightning or heavy rain to worry about. Started scanning the shingle picking up a few smaller teeth, the plan was to head up the cliffs maybe 500 yards and check at the base of them as this is where the better teeth are normally located. However, upon getting there, the cliffs were clearly not safe with many parts having overhanging material! My concerns were soon confirmed when a huge section came down a bit further down the beach. No tooth is worth getting buried for, so I soon changed to looking about halfway down the beach in the red crag material where you get rarer teeth some with really nice patterns. 5 minutes later I found this, a gorgeous 70mm Meg tip! This one was a lot less worn than the usual ones but unfortunately not complete! None the less I was still very happy! No further teeth and with darkness closing in I left happy again! Thanks for reading everyone!!! (Dear moderators, is there anyway you can rotate the photos? I am unable to! Thanks!!)
  18. English Megalodon!

    Had a quick trip down to my local beach after work. We have had massive storms along with large spring tides so the red crag cliffs have taken a battering. Dodging heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Found nothing of major significance for an hour and was getting soaked through so decided to head back to the car with my tail between my legs. Walking along and this was just lying on the shingle! 95mm long just sitting there!!! My first complete Meg. Needless to say I was rather happy! Thanks for reading!
  19. Hi to Forum members; I am an amateur rock collector who likes to look for fossils. For the most part I have not found anything fantastic but I am hopeful. I kindly request any information and or comments about a recent flint specimen from my back garden in Ipswich, Tuddenham Road. I have other photos of the flint that show unusual structures. On those photos, I used my photo app to adjust the exposure to get more fine detail. If it will help, I would gladly share. Also from my back garden, I found a petrified seed/pod/nut shell. Can someone help me identify what it is. May thanks! Munchy2
  20. ***Picture Heavy*** Went down to my local beach after work on Monday with the intention of looking for plant seeds from the London Clay beds. After waiting half an hour for the tide to recede i could get to the best material.... Within the first five minutes something large caught my eye in one of the material piles.....See if you can spot it... A nearly perfect 58mm Otodus! With intact cusps and serrations, maybe an Otodus Aksuaticus? Needless to say it was a bit of a surprise! Found a few of the usual Striatolamia teeth in situ. And a bit of a ray plate. Found a fish vert slowly wearing out of the clay. A few seeds and a tiny bone (10mm) photos are of poor quality but any ideas of what it is? Seeds. Tiny bone. The tide had started to come in by that point so headed up onto the beach. Photos showing the red crag cliffs with the London Clay bed below it. This part of the beach is picked over a lot so i do not tend to spend to much time there. (Unless its productive such as after a storm where the shingle gets washed away to expose the London clay beds under it then it is incredible ) Few beach finds, the majority are a bit worn after being rolled around by the waves etc. Few partials of much bigger teeth. So in all, quite a productive couple of hours! Thanks all!
