  1. I am new to this forum, but from what I have gathered the formations present in Summerville are the ones I have tagged. I have found several shark’s teeth in the bank of man made flood ditches in Summerville SC. I found these three teeth that just seemed different. I would be thrilled to learn more about these and potentially be able to ID them. If there’s any issues with the pictures, I’d be happy to put another one up to be more clear. Thanks in advance!
  2. Bone with marks

    Hey, I was looking at this bone I found in Summerville, SC and I’m curious to know what the marks are, I know they’re probably not anything but I figured I’d ask so that I could just stop wondering! TIA!
  3. Summerville SC Land Site

    Let's say I've theoretically found an active construction site in Summerville, South Carolina that I would like to go fossiling in. How would I get permission to go and poke around there? What days of the week would nobody be working there? Also, what would be the best way to begin looking for teeth at a land site? I have some experience in the Summerville creeks, but have no clue where to start here. I would really appreciate some input from those of you who happen to be knowledgable about this kind of thing.
  4. Got a pretty decent haul out of Summerville on Tuesday, finally found a creek spot that was halfway decent. Lots of little broken Meg chunks, but the big tooth remains elusive. I did find a nice angustidens, though, which is in excellent shape for a creek tooth of that size. I put the specimens I could use some help identifying in the upper right hand corner of the first picture. I know the top two are mammal teeth of some sort, pretty sure the right one is either horse or camel, but I have no clue about the one on the left. Below them are what I assume is the remains of some sort of coral, and on the bottom is a small mystery tooth in matrix and a strange piece of fossilized something. I would really appreciate it if any of yall could let me know what some of this stuff is. I plan on heading back to this site tomorrow or the next day because we just had a decent storm blow through, so stay tuned!
  5. 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.
  6. Hi everyone, this believed to be "tooth/bone" was found in the Dorchester Creek / Ridgeville area.
  7. Need Help with Identification

    Hi everyone, need help with some identification here. The first photos of the brown looking tooth was found in Edisto, while the bone you see was found in Dorchester Creek in Summerville.
  8. Hi I have been trying to learn some about the Summerville/ladson S.C. area I’m search of teeth and fossils with not much success. I am not asking for anyone’s honey holes. I’m interested in finding a fellow enthusiast or small group that would enjoy an outing for the day to show me some new tips and just have fun looking for some teeth and fossils... if there is anyone interested in getting together that’s familiar with the Hobby and willing to share it would be very much appreciated and excited to explore an area and learn! Thanks I’m advance!!
  9. Hey hey, hope everybody’s Tuesday went well! I’m new here, 25 and have much to learn in realm of fossil hunting. I’m hoping you can help. I live in Charleston, SC and travel up to Summerville from time to time to explore creeks searching for the ever elusive megalodon. I’m relatively green hunting fossil but I do have some good spots and good finds. Of all the effort I’ve given, and believe me I really have put hundreds of hours into searching, I still have not mastered the art of finding these suckers. I’m hoping someone can help. I’m thinking part of my shortcoming is not truly understanding the layering of fossil bands, or maybe I’ve just been unlucky. I’ve been recklessly searching creeks hoping to run into gravel. My soul needs a big megalodon tooth. I understand these spots are sacred and demand respect and discretion. Can someone offer me any guidance? PM me if you can help.
  10. Okay, I posted this yesterday and I’m not sure if it was that it was too long winded, in the wrong spot, or both. So, I will attempt to boil it down. There was a post on this topic in 2011 but I feel like there’s certainly more knowledge on this now. 1. What formations are megalodon teeth coming from? The plausible ones are the Parachucla (22ma), Marks Head (18ma), and Goose Creek Lime (3.5ma), all within the umbrella Hawthorn formation. The CofC Museum lists almost every specimen as coming from the Goose Creek Lime, yet the hottest spots at best have the Raysor formation(2.5ma) exposed. 2. Are said spots only good underwater where the river has cut through to the former three? 3. Is material between the Marks Head and Goose Creek era extant in any areas? People have suggested that the size of some teeth would place them in the middle of these two time periods, unless there’s reason to believe they’re reworked. 4. Wanting to see pictures of the formations mentioned (excluding Marks Head which is only subsurface), in addition the Wando and Chandler Bridge formations if anyone has pictures lying around.
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. Need advice for SC collecting

    I am going down to Hilton Head Island in a few weeks, and I was thinking of stopping in Summerville to collect some shark teeth. This will be my first time hunting in South Carolina, so I would appreciate any suggestions as to good spots (I am especially interested in Meg teeth).
  15. I had scoped out a few potential fossiling sites in the Summerville area with the help of Google maps, and finally got the chance to check them out on Saturday. While I still couldn't tell you where to find huge teeth in Summerville, I can certainly tell you where you won't now. However, I did find a few promising spots that will require further investigation. Out of the 4 or so new spots I checked out, only two held even the smallest tooth. I also visited an old favorite spot and did alright there. Here are the results from this trip. I've also got some unknown specimens that I have included a separate picture of. I you have any idea what any of these are, I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Thanks! - Shoe
  16. Summerville Tips

    Hey guys, I'm going to be in Charleston here in a bit, just visiting family over the summer, and I would appreciate some help in finding good places in Summerville to hunt the creeks. I've had some success, but I'd like to narrow down my options some before I get out there. I am not asking anyone to surrender their honey holes, but I would like to know which areas of Summerville are topographically favorable for finding fossils. I've noticed that some creeks will be chock full of material, but a near-identical creek half a mile from it will be barren of fossils. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  17. Big tooth

    Big tooth found by my wife yesterday in Summerville sc sawmillbranch 4.5 long 3.5 wide
  18. A day in Summerville, SC

    First time fossil hunter, and we had a blast! If anyone needs a guide, or just advice, I HIGHLY recommend Barry Segura of Fossil Madness (his company). He was able to point us in the right direction, as well as hook us up with some great equipment. Thank you for everyone on TFF that encouraged and gave me advice!!!
  19. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  20. Ray barb or teeth

    This piece is .45" long. Barbs/teeth on one side only @ .025" tall & .025" pitch. The opposite side of the teeth is not damaged and show no evidence of teeth or barbs. Can anyone give me some clues as to what this might be?
  21. Oligocene

    Due to the smaller cusp, these would be Carcharocles Angustidens??
  22. Carcharocles

    This group of teeth should be from the Eocene period? Carcharocles Auriculatus I am guessing due to the size of the cusp?? Teeth are 1.4" and found in the Chandler bridge formation.
  23. Hi friends! I'm new, I just stumbled across this forum and it's awesome content while searching for fossil localities near Charleston, South Carolina. I was hoping to get some tips on looking for shark teeth anywhere between Columbia and Charleston. I am taking a road trip from AZ with my family and thought it would be really great to stop and search for fossils along the way. I just can't seem to really pin down any nice spots to find some. I know fossil hunting grounds are a very hush-hush type of thing, but I was hoping that I could be pointed in the direction of somewhere where I might be able to take the kids and hopefully find 5 to 10 teeth. Is anyone willing to share a location that is easily accessible where we can find a few neat little fossils? Maybe somewhere like a road cut, an easily accessible creek, or even a pile of excavated dirt...? Thanks so much!
