  1. Hello Everyone, I've been working to fill this antique machinist's tool box with my shark tooth collection for a little over a year, and it's finally shaping up nicely. Most of the teeth and fossils are self-collected and most of them are from the area around Charleston, SC. Hopefully I'll need a larger cabinet a year from now. Thanks for having a look! The case itself - The broken/B-grade teeth- Misc. fossils (non-shark) - Carcharocles angustidens, Isurus hastalis, Isurus desori, Isurus retroflexus - Alopias and Parotodus - Hemipristis and Carcharodon carcharias - Larger angustidens & Carcharocles megalodon / Teeth from other locations- Pathologies, oddities, juvenile/posterior angustidens & megalodon - Large angustidens & megalodon -
  2. Hey guys, Just wanted to show my new addition to my small collection a 4.85 inch Meg tooth from Hawthorn Formation, Sth Carolina. I really like it because of its natural glossy dark grey color and I also upgraded to a larger tooth. Thanks for looking guys
  3. I have some Lance formation matrix I purchased on that auction site and I have been slowly breaking it down. This is one of my finds. I don't have a scale small enough to measure it against so . . . It is a little smaller than the head of a pin, flea speck. I did a Google image search on Lance Formation micro teeth but came up with nothing. The photos were taken with my Nikon point an shoot through the eyepiece of my microscope. These photos are the best I can do.
  4. Hi, I'm new to this forum. I have found the following two fossils and would like some opinions on their identification. The tooth I believe to be a C. Megalodon from the research i have carried out, while the shell is unknown. I would also like to know what the best approach to cleaning the fossils is. Any opinions on both their identification will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  5. Any thoughts on what this little tooth (I think it's a tooth) might have belonged to? It was found near Venice Beach in Florida.
  6. I found an unusually shaped tooth in the Belgrade quarry a couple of weeks ago. I am a baby fossil hunter, but it appears to be some type of very small shark or ray tooth. I am having trouble getting clear pix, but these are my best ones. The middle pic is the bottom of the tooth. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Found this today in slough adjoining Myakka river. It is round but straight, about 2" long and nearly 1/2" in diameter. I did find a dolphin tooth and several small (<1") shark teeth plus smaller bone fragments (area has larger mammal fragments nearby. Education appreciated! Thanks, Calvin
  8. This tooth was found in a Miocene area a while ago. I thought Mako at the time and didn't give it much more thought. I have recently seen some makos someone else has found over the last couple years and they don't seem to have the bulk of this this. This one is 2" long but a nice 1/2" thick. Any help with ID is appreciated.
  9. I picked up this paleocarcharodon tooth from the auction site a couple of weeks ago. It was misidentified as auriculatus and has no collection data at all, but was only $10 or so, so I bought it. Because of the faint serrations, it looks like an early paleocarcharodon to me, which is why I wanted it. There is some restoration to the root lobes, which is never ideal, but the blade and cusps have not been touched. My questions are; 1. Do you agree with my assessment that it is an early transitional paleocarcharodon? 2. It looks like a typical Moroccan tooth to me, which is certainly where it originated, but would anyone know if it is safe to presume more detailed data or is this tooth common from multiple localities? cheers!
  10. I've had this fossil keychain since I was a kid and I'm not sure exactly what species it belongs to. It's 1 1/2 inches long and wide it has serrations and the back is flat. Based on the size and shape I either believe it to be a really small megalodon tooth or a megalodon ancestor from the carcharodon's. But that's just my guess what do you guys think?
  11. What type of tooth is this? And your thoughts on removing some of the excess rock or matrix from the crown?

  16. Hi there! I found this specimen on a beach in north Florida (Amelia Island). The curve shape caught my eye, and the black surface changing to dark brown interior reminded me of fossil coloration. Any chance this is a fossilized tusk of some kind? Hopefully the photos are detailed enough. Many thanks!
  17. I'm wondering if this is a small benedeni tooth and if not what is it? It's 1.2" long. cheers!
  18. I'm not sure what type of tooth this is, I found it in Venice, Florida. I've been thinking that it is a mako shark or extinct mako shark tooth, not exactly sure though
  19. Does anyone know what this is? To me it resembles a tooth of some sort. I found it in Indiana years ago and have just been going through some old finds.
  20. 1/2 cm long mammal tooth found in some material from a creek in East central Mississippi. This creek produces a ton of vertebrate material from sharks, crocs, dugong etc...and some land mammals. Crazy small tooth, any thoughts?
  21. I recently had the opportunity to do some butt scootin in the gravel banks along the Bear Creek washes looking for crabies and artifacts. Yeah, I found a couple of whathca-ma-call-em artifacts but there are fossils to be found as well. Croc scute, Ammonites Calycoceras Tarrentense & Metengonoceras Dumbli, Gastropod sp. ? Artifacts and my first shark tooth from that location. The other items are just some peculiar stones that strike me as take me home specimens. John, these were found directly below the area that I took you to. It was the same area I found that other crab you are interested in. BTW: I will be getting it back soon.
  22. I found this shark tooth yesterday in the first chalk bench of the Fort Hays Member of the Niobrara approximately one foot off the contact of the Carlile Shale (my first keeper from the Niobrara). I was able to prepare it as best I could this morning and realized it doesn't have a root. This was my first matrix prep of a fossil and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. I was hoping someone could help me identify it. I think the photos look at the lingual side of the tooth. Also - since it's imbedded in chalk, it is beginning to separate from the matrix. Does anyone have suggestions for helping affix it to the matrix? I would superglue it but don't want the glue to affect the overall appearance of the enamel. Thanks!
  23. I think we found this at the beach...don't remember. Has been sitting on a shelf for some time. Thanks!
  24. Hi everyone, I found this tooth in some micro matrix I received from a friend. It is from a Cretaceous site in southeastern N.C., Cretaceous Black Creek Group; Campanian Not sure if it is Tarheel, Bladen or Donoho Creek Formation. The site is known for marine and land finds. I just dont see shark in this tooth. I cannot really say why, but could be wrong. So here it is, help. It measures in at a whopping 4 1/2 mm wide and about 4 mm long.
  25. Sorry for the barrage of Hell Creek posts, I finally have time to go through some of my summer collections. I am having a hard time with this mammal tooth (Hell Creek Formation, Late-Cretaceous, South Dakota). The occlusal surface is heavily worn. I was thinking perhaps Cimolodon? or Mesodma? Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Scale bar = 1 mm
