  1. Venice Shark Tooth

    I while back I took a trip to venice beach and found this tooth.
  2. Help with shark tooth ID

    I'm new to shark tooth hunting and can't figure out what type of shark this is from. Can anyone help?
  3. Found this interesting item

    Hello all. I found this at Englewood beach while my wife was hunting shark teeth. I tend to look for other strange items. I put a soda bottle lid in for size reference. Any thoughts? Thank you for any help.
  4. Hello, I found this diving off of Venice Beach, FL in about 25 feet of water. It is about 88mm x 38 mm. To me it looks like a piece of a tusk. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks!
  5. Some Venice FL finds

    So I recently have been making trips to Venice beach FL. It's a new spot for me as I've previously only hunted in the Tampa Bay area or the Peace River, therefore some of the teeth I'm finding I'm not familiar with. These are my anomalies from the latest two trips. Sorry about only having an imperial ruler, it's the best I can do at the moment. Feel free to ask for more pictures if needed. This first one is the one I'm most curious about. At first I thought it was a shark tooth but when I pulled it out of the sifter, I realized it has a tiny cap and root attached. Small rooted mammal tooth or gator tooth?
  6. Another tooth I found yesterday at Venice FL. Curious about what kind of tooth. Maybe a snaggletooth or a great white? It’s bout as big as my finger tip. I’m not super experienced, so any help is appreciated! Thanks for taking a look. -HT
  7. One of the teeth I found yesterday at Venice. It’s about as small as my finger tip, but it’s a pretty tooth. My best guess is hemipristis or snaggletooth? Thanks for taking a look! -HT
  8. Are these megaldon?

    Found these hunting for teeth along a beach in Venice FL. They are kind of small, but I thought that could maybe be prosterior teeth? Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks! -HT
  9. Tooth found in Venice Fl-what kind?

    My friend’s find from Venice FL. Looks like a tooth, but what kind? Any help is appreciated. Thanks! -HT
  10. I know there are megs off of Venice beach and I get so jealous of the finds people post after diving!! They are gorgeous teeth!!! Curious- can these megs be scooped up without scuba equipment? I would love to get certified but right now it's not in my budget...
  11. Sites near Venice

    Hello! Me and my dad are going down to Venice in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on where to hunt. So far the only spot I know of is just Venice beach. I would appreciate any help you could give me! Thanks
  12. Bone fragment? Located in Venice FL

    Any thoughts on what this is? I found this on the beach in Venice FL and it's the only piece I haven't been able to roughly identify. That's a pen next to it for scale.
  13. Venice Beach Trip Set

    The plane tickets are purchased and the sifter and 'Florida Snow Shovel' have already arrived in Cape Coral! My in-laws have a place in Cape Coral and the wife and I visit them every year in early March. Last year we went to Venice Beach and I totally got hooked on fossils and sharks teeth. Living in the Pennsylvania, I don't get down to Florida often, but I have been able to make it to Calvert Cliffs twice this winter. While I did find some very small teeth the last time (my first time) at Venice Beach, just south of the pier I am hoping to find some better spots. I am not looking for anyone to reveal any personal sites or honey holes, but I hope some forum member can chime in and and let me know some decent places to look. I know we will for sure be making a family trip to Venice Beach for a day, but I also hope to be able to steal a day on my own for fossil exploration. Any information or tips would be much appreciated. I will get a permit prior to the trip, and the in-laws gracefully took down a sifter and scoop for me when they left a few weeks ago. There is nothing like examining your finds while sipping some Wicked Dolphin Rum and sitting on the canal!
  14. I found this last year in the sand at Venice Beach, FL. It doesn’t appear to be fully fossilized. I’m guessing it’s from an animal? I’m really not sure at all. Could it be from a bird beak? The white part almost looks like wood but I think it’s actually bone and then it blends into translucent material that feels smooth like enamel on a nail. It’s about 4 inches long and extremely sharp and pointy. It could impale you. Any ideas? Thanks!!
  15. Alligator or barracuda tooth?

    Apologies for the makeshift ruler aka chapstick, which is used for reference to size. We're on vacation and have limited resources, can't even locate a quarter in this house! Can someone please help me identify this tooth which I believe looks similar to alligator or possibly barracuda?All help is appreciated thanks!
  16. This is the second large shark's tooth. It was found by my father who lived in Sarasota Florida. No more information on where he found it. Was given to me upon his passing. The measurements are: 1 ½ inch (3.81 cm) wide, 2 ¼ inch (5.715 cm) long, ¼ inch (.635 cm) height. Here are some pictures as best as I could take them.
  17. This is the first of 2 posts for 2 large shark's teeth. This one was found by myself on a shell driveway in Sarasota, Florida. Really. The dimensions are: 1 ¾ inch (4.445 cm) wide, 2 ½ inch (6.35 cm) long, height is ¾ inches (1.905 cm), tip curves up approx. ¼ inches (.635 cm), the width (from top to bottom) of the inside triangle shape is 5/16 inch (0.79375 cm). Here are some pictures as best as I can take them. Can you help me ID this tooth?
  18. Venice Beach Florida

    Total strikeout at Venice Beach Florida today. Not a single tooth. Wonder what I was doing wrong with the stiffer tool? Others on the beach alwo had no luck today.
  19. Help with Identifying Florida Fossils

    Hello, I was hunting for sharks' teeth around Venice Beach/Caspersen Beach last week, and along with finding a bunch of shark teeth, I found some other fossil-looking stones. I'm not sure what kind of fossils they are, or if they even are fossils, so I'd like some help identifying them! All of them are quite hard and most are fairly shiny. #1: It has a sort of "hole" or concavity in one end which you can see from the second photo. It also has a bit of a crack on the underside, as you can see from the last photo. #2: This one is fairly porous/pockmarked looking, and has grooved lines. The next looks pretty much the same as the previous one, but I thought I would include photos anyway. #3: Pretty much the same as the last one; porous. #4: This next one is very interesting to me; it has quite a few cracks and even has a hole all the way through! #5: I suspect that this one may be just a rock; pretty much the only characteristic that makes me think that it could be a fossil is the color. #6: I'm thinking that this one is probably a normal (albeit strange looking) rock too... #7: This one is a bit pockmarked/porous. If this one actually is a fossil, it seems like it would have to be pretty worn, since I don't really see any definite shape! Sorry, I know that was a TON of photos!! Thanks for the help!
  20. Peace River and Venice ID

    Hi there guys, I was hoping you could help with the identification of three different fossils. The ones with the ridges that look like miniature mammoth teeth were found in peace river in Arcadia, while the flatter set of teeth and fang-looking thing were found at a land site in Venice. Thanks in advance for your help!
  21. Hilarious Shark Teeth Finds

    Funny story - I posted about our trip to Venice and what we found. Well after spending 4 mornings on the beaches searching and sifting and coming up with only tiny teeth and not much else, I was packing the car to head back home this morning and behold; three beautiful teeth just hanging out on top of the gravel in the driveway. Guess I know where I should have been searching this whole time!
  22. Help? Shark teeth

    I’m hoping someone could help me with a quick question! I have too many teeth and I need to let some go- I know that the rules say you can’t help appraise- but perhaps offer a general idea? The teeth are small but very beautifully colored (similar to agate?). Not all of them are colorful but the ones that are seem very unique to me! I know that my idea of value is not quite right since I was raised in shark tooth city, but most of what I see for a dime a dozen is pretty plain (black/gray) and I’ve searched with not too many answers -any advice on where to get started would be great, thank you !
  23. South Florida deformed shark tooth?

    I found this tooth yesterday and I’m a unsure of what it is. Maybe I’m overthinking what kind of tooth it is, so I figured I would ask for another opinion. It I’m thinking it may be a Tiger Shark Tooth that Maybe slightly deformed. Thanks
  24. Need a little more help

    We found this today and have been trying to figure out what it could be. I'm guessing it may be some kind of tooth or tusk I'm sure someone will be able to ID it. It was found snorkeling at the beach near Venice Florida.
  25. Also horse?

    This tooth was found diving off of Venice - we also found this nice, full horse tooth (in the background). The one I'm holding seems so much bigger than a usual horse tooth - could it be from some different mammal?
