    Calvert Cliffs trip 1

    Took my first trip out to Calvert cliffs state park this weekend. Got there as early as I could, which started me at high tide. Beach loaded up with people throughout the day. And from what I saw, nobody else found any teeth. So I consider myself lucky with the hastalis I found. The roots were just barely showing, I think a wave may have just uncovered them. It was a long day round trip from NY but worth it. Also found some scallops.
  2. Wanted to share my finds from a quick shark teeth hunting trip in Florida. Found a very nice Mako, definitely the coolest tooth I've found yet.

    Calvert cliffs

    Recent trip to Calvert cliffs, finally was able to get a boat out on the water after years of planning. Did pretty well, I’m hoping the haul is a little bigger next time because it’s a lot of paddling. Here’s the haul. This is a large whale vertebra I found. All the shark teeth I found at Calvert. The large mako was in a fall and I was hoping it was whole but alas, the time was broke. Oh well. Still a not bad day.
  4. My 11 year old found this on Naples Beach in Florida, and are trying to identify the type and approximate age. I can’t seem to find anything definitive- I’m guessing an extinct white shark, but would love some expert eyes. Thank you- this is more exciting than the masks, medical waste and needles floating to shore on our NJ beaches currently.
  5. Hello, I just found this shark tooth in my collection. Unfortunately I don't know anything about fossil shark teeth, so I wanted to ask you for help. The tooth measures about 38mm on the longest side, but I don't know where the tooth was found. At the first look, it looks like a Mako shark tooth to me, but what species? I only know the modern ones... Maybe you can help me. Thank you in advance and best regards from Germany

    Macrorhizodus praecursor

    From the album: Sharks

    Macrorhizodus praecursor Extinct Mako shark Samlat Fm., Ad-Dakhla, Western Sahara This is one of the last common ancestors to the lineages that spawned the modern Great White and Mako.

    rapp beach hunts

    Too hot to get out much and lots of competition on the beach (or at least footprints). More beach glass than teeth lately. Here's from several trips: Drum and angel (side one): drum and angel, side 2: Shrimp coprolite burrows (evidently those looking for teeth ignore these): Some teeth (rootless mako and sand tiger symphyseal), skate spikes, broken vert:
  8. I hit the Potomac yesterday after a long hiatus for some Paleocene sharks teeth. I also decided to include a few of my finds from the recent Stratford hall trip, which was pretty decent. I always go to Douglas point for my Paleocene teeth because it’s just a good area and I almost always come back with a complete otodus. This time, that didn’t happen, though I did find a few broketodus teeth so meh. But I did come back with some good stuff, including a monster croc tooth, and a gigantic goblin sharks tooth. I also got a fish jaw with a lot of teeth in it and some other nice stuff, in addition

    Shark Tooth ID

    Hey all, I had a fun haul today in Charleston, SC (full haul in the first couple pictures). I was wondering if anyone could ID the first two teeth (pictures 3, 4, 5, 6) and let me know if they are A. grandis or a lateral Isurus tooth. Also, could anyone ID the mako tooth (picture 7)? Is it C. hastalis, I. desori/oxyrinchus, or I. retroflexus/paucus? Thanks in advance!
  10. Cabin fever made me stupidly ignore the weatherman (another institution I no longer trust) and head out into the 100% chance of rain and cold. Tried to avoid getting wet, as it WAS cold. Tried a very old spot, and was surprised at the results (the beach where I normally hunt has lost all its sand (?) and I've found no teeth their my last three trips). No rain, Birds were uproariously singing, Spring on the way! The creek was high and icy, saw no aquatic life. Anyway, found a bunch, showing the most interesting. Although big makos are nice (and I like the piebald one better though the 2" b

    Fossil ID Matoaka trip 2

    Hi Again! for Easter this year I decided to go to the Calvert cliffs for some Easter egg fossil hunting. it was a lovely day out got to talk with some nice folks. I wanted to share some of my finds and my IDs of them to check if I got them right before I put labels on them in my collection. 1) Stingray teeth, most likely eagle ray, although the grayish one looks to me like a duck billed ray. 2) Mako Shark Isurus hastalis upper 3) Hemipristis Serra upper 4) Extinct tiger shark Physogaleus contortus 5) Extinct tiger shark Galeocerdo (I think the one

    Cosmopolitodus hastalis - Bite mark?

    I have a 2.96" Cosmopolitodus hastalis from Beaufort County, South Carolina. It has a cut across the root. It looks similar to bite marks I've seen, however those have been on parts of the tooth that make sense like the blade. Is this a bite mark? If so, how would it get on the root? Best, Bellamy

    Bone Valley Makos

    Hi, I have 3 teeth here from Bone Valley, Florida. They appear to be Mako, but I'm not sure if they're Hastalis. Size range is 1" - 2". Could anyone confirm for me? Thank you, Bellamy

    Dagger-like teeth

    My 7 year son spotted this gem the other day. Such a beauty isn't it?
  15. Hey all - I had a great week of shark tooth hunting in Charleston, SC and wanted to share my top favorites from each day Tuesday - Friday. Got to appreciate when it goes right!!

    Aurora Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hello. I found this tooth about a year and a half ago in the spoil piles outside the Aurora Fossil Museum. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it? I think it might be a mako tooth (Isurus oxyrinchus?). Also, does anyone know why one side of the root is much smaller than the other? Is that damage? Or maybe due to jaw position? Thanks for your help.

    Shark Tooth ID - Florida

    Please help ID any of these sharks teeth that were collected from the west coast of Florida (near Venice) this past weekend. Based on my research, the top two rows look like Sand Tiger and the bottom two look like Lemon. Would this be correct or are there any that look out of sorts?

    Shark Tooth ID - Florida (Part 2)

    Please help me ID these shark teeth that were found on the west coast of Florida (near Venice) over the past weekend. My belief is that the top row could be Great White and/or Megalodon (very nice serration on the largest/first one), the second row is either Bull or Dusky, and the third row is Hemipristis (Snaggletooth). As for the fourth row... the jury is still out. I am most intrigued by the third/tiny one (from left to right). It looks different from anything else I have ever found. Very compact, lots of detail, and oddly shaped. Any ideas???
  19. I have here an alleged Carcharodon hastalis from Chile. It is 1.85" long and 1.12" wide. After receiving the tooth, it looked a lot more like Isurus planus to me. The other party insists it's Carcharodon hastalis. At the very least, they insist it comes from Chile. To the best of my knowledge, Isurus planus isn't found in Chile. I've never heard of it anyway. Two questions, then. Is this Hastalis or Planus? And if it is Planus, might it be Chilean? Thank you, Bellamy

    Calvert County Trip

    Took a trip down to Calvert County this past weekend and did some searching around the Matoaka Cabins and just outside of Flag Ponds Park. Think I did pretty well for a two day search!
  21. My daughter had off from "school" Wednesday, so we took advantage of the opportunity and perfect weather to hit the cliffs for a few hours. After several days of rough water and winds, the Bay was calm with a favorable tide and pretty empty of boat traffic as you'd expect on a weekday. Arriving around 11:00 a.m., still a few hours before low tide, we thought we had the place to ourselves. But we soon came across the fresh boot prints of another collector who had already been through looking for the low-hanging fruit at the high tide line. A little disappointed, but undeterred, we went about

    What kinds of makos are these?

    The three shark teeth below are all from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland. I have the two on the left (A. and B.) tentatively identified as Isurus desori, but I'm still learning my mako IDs, including the differences between true makos and Carcharodon hastalis. Hopefully these are identifiable despite their root conditions. I don't know if the tooth on the right (C.) is identifiable or not. Thanks in advance for any help!
  23. Where do i go to find the grey clay layer and big teeth. Dont want anything small
  24. Got out this week with my kids for several hours on Calvert Cliffs to see what we could find, dodging all the storms. Unfavorable windy conditions and a lot of sand brought in by the tropical storm made for tough searching on the beach, but we had good success working some of the larger fall piles. We're finding that these fall blocks hold a lot of bones that most other casual collectors overlook, even on heavily worked beaches. And we are getting better at spotting them and getting them out (mostly) intact. The big pieces closest to the water and wave action are always eroding out something
