Hello all. I'm curious to find out if anyone can help identifying a fossil I found on the shore line of North Myrtle Beach while I was on a family vacation last week. ThanksIMG_20190430_141517.thumb.jpg.f4ce62b2834f2741bdd9dd3d1b1adbc0.jpg

Possible worn megaladon tooth? It would be good to see the other side and have a scaled measure.

You do not have to go that far to find fossils. They are all over east Texas.

Search the forum and You should find some good places to go that are pretty close to You.

Hi, and welcome from Illinois. Nice for the first fossil! May you find many more. Like ynot said, there's fossils all over east Texas. You should almost be tripping over them just about anywhere you go. Find the nearest creek or road cut and you should find plenty.

The OP’s profile says she’s from North Carolina. And while “east Texas” may be loosely defined, what most folks around here consider east Texas is flat coastal plain and piney woods, not really a lot of fossil spots considering the size of the area.

See above. While east Texas has plenty of creeks, road cuts are rare and places with fossils are few and far between.  Have to go to central Texas, (think west Dallas down through San Antonio) to trip over any fossils. :thumbsu:

Isn't the Sulfur River in east Texas? Isn't Dallas in east Texas?

The Sulfur River is in northeast Texas, and Dallas is considered north Texas.  Neither of which have anything to do with Myrtle Beach, SC (where the tooth was found) or Hudson, NC (Sydney's profile location).
