A Change of Luck for the Better! Finding Megalodon teeth!

Glad you got some nice teeth in the end ! What a great trip, loved the cowrie and the shell with coral on.

The whale tooth is really nice too.

Your enthusiasm is infectious.

The orange stuff looks like slime mold to me! Nice.:)

Great finds! Glad to see that you could find a variety of fossils especially at that time of the day.

Oh yeah I love getting some cool invertebrates too! We somehow forgot to get a clip of finding the whale tooth :(. And yeah, that stuff made me want to take a shower :hearty-laugh:

Amazing video. Felt like I was part of your expedition - except I didn't get to take home any goodies. :envy:

If you are in North Florida then the shell bed is probably Lower Pleistocene Nashua Formation which contains a mix of tropical species found in the Caloosahatchee Formation further south and warm temperate species from the Waccamaw Formation in the Carolinas with a few endemics to the Nashua.  The cowrie is Siphocypraea problematica, the shell with the encrusting coral (Septastrea marylandica) is Plicofusus scalarina, the volute is Scaphella floridana, and I also see what is probably Fusinus caloosahatcheensis which until recently went by the genus name Heilprinia.  The tulip shell could be one of three different species based upon the protoconch (the very tip which represents the embryonic shell) but if I had to put a name on it I would say Fasciolaria apicina.
