  1. From the album: MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    The Fall Creek Crawl

    Hello everyone, since school has let go I've had an opportunity to get back in the water and do some quiet and relaxing hunting. The leaves are falling in the bucket fulls so that does tend to clog things up a bit at this time of year, but the weather has been warmer than usual and the spouse gods have been in my favor. I've had a time documenting some of the more interesting finds. I usually give the haul a good single flatbed scan to archive everything by date and then concentrate on anything interesting. Some color about, which means they haven't been sitting on the creek-b

    5 inch Meg in the summer ... finally

    Whoo Boy .. what a Friday ! I decided that this was the day I was gonna pull a Meg out of the water. I even called it with my wife present, and she gave me the same rolled eyes to the ceiling look .. haha. I had dropped in two weeks prior and pulled out 3 fraglodons in the 2-3in range in the same spot so I suspected that there were other large chunks to be had if not a whole tooth. These teeth are from a re-worked layer so in the stream they can take a further beating. On the whole the rains have been pretty steady on and off the past few weeks and the water was murky unfortu

    From the album: Peace River Fossils (2016-2017)

    A 1.6 inch upper jaw Snaggletooth shark tooth. Note the bite marks likely made when the tooth was lost during feeding.
  5. My brother and I found this fossil shark tooth in the gravel beds along Firesteel Creek near Mitchell, SD. We have gone several times and found many shark teeth but to my knowledge, this is the first Hemipristis serra that we found. I believe this tooth has been worked by Native Americans. There is a perfectly circular hole in the root - or it would be circular if part of the tooth weren't broken away. I have read that worked fossil shark teeth from the Chesapeake Bay, including Hemipristis serra, have been found in burial mounds as far away as Ohio. My questions are: do you agree that th
  6. Hello everyone ... I had the pleasure of going out on a guided tour so to speak of a creek near Summerville, SC and it was a hoot. A few cool things to be had but really the highlight of my day were these little colorful Hemi teeth. The best one was the pathological Hemi with a twisted root and malformed crown ? Thanks to Dennis and Shawn. Cheers, Brett

    Port Royal, SC Shark Tooth Hunt 10/15/16

    Hello Everyone, Thought I'd share some finds from Port Royal, SC. I've had some free time lately, owing to a large storm with my first name on it .... so I decided to spend two days this week poking around to see what I can find. Here are the best of those trips. A few Hemi shark teeth and my first two (found on the same day) cow shark teeth ! Those were a surprise. A few fish teeth. Mako, g. cuvier, p. contortus There were a few finds I have questions about .. The tooth with the enamel and root, could that be another Tapir Tooth ? Tapirus Venensis
