  1. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone on here is from (or very familiar with) coastal plain South Carolina. I am not fishing for spots at all, in fact I have a vacation rental on a nice piece of land west of Summerville that I picked and paid for in hopes that we would have fossiling accessible from our home base. We have river access and the land is ripe with creeks. I would like to network with someone knowledgeable about the area to find out if where we are staying might be fossiliferous. This is mostly my teenage son's hobby, but we will definitely hunt as a family. We did hunt
  2. Hey all... I thought I'd put up some pics of my fossil collection - well, the sharp end of it. I have a few other fossils (fish, ammonite etc) but for now, I'll put up my fossil teeth. I started collecting fossils almost by accident a few years ago, I was in a small rock and mineral shop, in a small town 2 hours from home, this shop had a small selection of fossils too and the Otodus teeth they had in stock grabbed my attention, I bought one and my collection has been growing ever since. The Otodus obliquus teeth below were my first and second fossil purchase

    Megatooth Sharks

    From the album: Sketches

    The meg is from the Miocene in Wrightsville, N.Carolina. The angustidens from the Oligocene in S.Carolina. The obliquus from the Eocene in Qued Zem, Khouribga, Morocco.

    Megalodon or white shark?

    Hey Guys! This one is probably a lot more obvious than I'm making it. My head says Megalodon due to the age of Bone Valley and the size, but my gut says white shark due to no Bourlette, the shape of the enamel where it meets the root on the distal and mesial side, and the serrations. So I decided to seek out an outside opinion. This is from Bone Valley Florida. Any insight is greatly appreciated!

    Fossil Shark ID help please.

    Hi folks. My turn to ask for ID help. I’m more of a dinosaur tooth and fossil guy. My friend gifted me these fossil shark teeth. Can you take a look and help me with these? I own a couple Meg teeth and other Shark teeth, but these are giving me a little trouble, or I’d like verification. The first two (A) and (B) have a bourlette, but proportionately large serrations like a Great White. Except GW teeth don’t have bourlettes. I believe (C) and (D) May be Carcharocles hastalis. Are they? I believe (E) is a Mako. But what species? Lastly, is
  8. I'm visiting DeLand for a week and a half, and really want to find a spot to search for fossils or shark teeth, haven't found many online and I know people have their own secret spots. Pm me locations if you don't want to share them publicly guys, I am only hand searching with a few family members. I am willing to drive a couple hours to spend a day hunting fossils

    Hunting Bone Valley

    The rains are increasing water depth almost daily, a hurricane is coming in, and so why not go hunting this last Friday. There was a 60% chance of rain starting about 1 pm, but we'll deal with that when and if it comes. As normal, we were finding many smaller shark teeth, most broken but a few good lemons and duskies, with an occasional Sand Tiger tossed in. I like Sand Tigers because they are relatively rare in my hunting areas. Usually, I am seeking those fossils that are not small shark teeth, and those are becoming harder and harder to find... likely due to my efforts
  11. Hey all, I stumbled upon this at an attractive price (but not so attractive that it screams reproduction) My concerns are mostly how the enamel meets the root of the tooth. I know the lighting is poor but unfortunately these are the only two photos. Appreciate any input!
  12. Dear All, I just wanted to make you all aware, (to my detriment) , some recent experiences I've has with purchasing Megalodon Teeth from Indonesia. This is not a name and shame post, simply my experiences with a 'grey area'. I've purchased many teeth recently and most are 100% A ok. However, the dealers are fully aware of the value realized from 5.5 inch plus teeth and this has resulted in a swathe of monster teeth being offered to the market. Now, I'm an idiot and need no reminding, but I fell for this trick about a month ago. The seller seemed genuine enoug

    Is this a chubutensis?

    I am looking for nice chubutensis tooth and I saw this on online. Please help me figure out what this is.. Is this a chubu or meg? I know nothing about locality of this fossil except Southeastern US..
  14. I bought this megalodon tooth the other day and was wondering whether it is real or not. I added images of it from the front and the back

    Shark Teeth

    This time I decided to draw some teeth from the group of Megatooth sharks. No point in showing original photos this time, since you all know what they look like. Now that the weather is finally taking a turn for the better, I'll be spending more time in the field again, so it may be a while before I get back to sketching again. And besides, Sara has just arrived and I need to keep her entertained.

    Very Pleasant day

    It was very hot today in Florida (96 Fahrenheit) . I did not notice until I got out of the river to leave. Pleasant, outdoors in nature, finding treasures from the distant past: large pieces of Mastodon/Mammoth teeth, a piece of Mastodon/Mammoth skull, Giant Tortoise shell, Horse teeth, a llama/camel tooth, dolphin ear bone, some nice Hemis, especially lowers, and 4-5 small Megs. The peace River is shallow. It is supposed to rain next week, so I enjoy while I can. Here is the best Meg... Think about it.. This Meg waited in the River for millions of years and today I was for
  17. Hello everyone ! what does the root of this megalodon tooth look like? it seems genuine to me but I would like other opinions thanks
  18. Hello all, I bought this megalodon tooth in South Africa a few years ago, and I was just recently curious as to its authenticity.
  19. Hey everyone! Going to STH somewhat soon, I plan on going to Ernst quarries(or if anyone has any other sites they’d recommend), and was wondering if there were any tips anyone could give me, since This will be my first time. Also, are there safety instructions they give you when you get there?
  20. Looking to purchase a new Megalodon tooth that is not from the United states. Came across this one. Is this worth it or should I skip it Edit 1: The big and actual only thing i am kind of skeptical about is the right part of the Bourlette. I've purchased and traded with this person for a longer time now and he is trustworthy
  21. Hello. I finally got around to taking pictures of my collection. It took a while to identify and label everything. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I’ll update this topic as I add new fossils. My first shelf currently has fish and mammal fossils. Weird combination, but I have limited space. I think the Knightia look nice at the top of the bookcase. Pair of Knightia eocaena Diplomystus Sea robin nose bone. I found this while on a Peace River guided tour with Mark R
  22. Hello there! I buy a beautiful megalodon tooth few years ago. Because I am curious I find that it is slightly radioactive ( 0.4µS/hours). I store it in a small showcase with other fossils. I read that fossilized shark teeth are made of apatite that can contain uranium and thorium. IF my tooth contain uranium, is there a risk of radon gaz accumulation in my showcase????? Thank you in advance Nicolas

    Good Day on the Peace

    Had a great day out on the Peace up in the north section. I'm primarily a tooth seeker but welcome other rare finds. Luckily the river will sever up plenty of teeth for years to come. This was my first time out in my new canoe(previously used inflatable kayaks due to convenience in my Camry.) And it makes a world of difference especially when to 12 ft. dinos make the plunge from the bank. Anyways the water levels were perfect. We found a nice pit that looked to be previously bank dug...... and it caused some concern from passers by. We only encountered 2 groups on the river. One b

    Peruvian Megalodon tooth?

    This one came across and it said it's from Ocacuja Desert, Peru. I just wanted to be sure.
  25. I want to go back to Peace River but I don't want to do the normal canoe outpost thing this time. I want to take a kayak south of Zolfo springs were the river gets bendy, shallow, and remote. I don't have a kayak so I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where I can rent one or if they want a hunting buddy for the second week of May.
