Your "Megalodon" teeth are actually Otodus sp. not Megs.

beat me to it! otodus are ancestral to megalodons though, right?

Those otodus teeth look like they're from Morocco. I've never seen any of such coloration like that from Virginia.

Your meteorites on the right don't look like any meteorites I've ever seen. 

Also, your fish appear to be Knightia eocaena.

Neat little collection.

I agree, can we get better pictures of the meteorites? To see what they could be.

As everyone had said, unforutunatly, the "megalodon teeth from virgina" look more like morroccan otodus teeth. The crowns are simply too small compared to the root with the lack of serrations and the presence of cusps.

 

I also think that the mosasaur tooth is also from morocco, not kansas. Ive never seen kansas rock that texture, but it looks like morroccan phosphate rock.

I concur with Tim and Whodaman on the "meteorite". Your trilobites could also very well be from Morocco.

Well I found them on the eastern shore, it didn't occur to me that the coloration was unusual
