  1. This fossil is being purchased because it is a large Chubutensis tooth. The cusp is not clearly visible, but the seller says that not all Chubutensis teeth have clear cusps. The discovery is in Beaufort, South Carolina.

    4.2 inch Chubutensis

    This time, it is a 4.2 inch Chubutensis tooth discovered in Bobert, South Carolina that will be included in the shark tooth collection! The cusps aren't that prominent, but I think they're great teeth!
  3. This is one of my Megalodon tooth collections. What is that sticking out here? Is it called a bridge? The Chubutensis teeth are sticking out like this. Is there a possibility of Chubutensis teeth? It's just a pathological tooth, right?
  4. While the Megalodon tooth seems to exist as THE find for many fossil hunters and/or amateur marine paleontologists alike (and rightly so!) it's never been my own personal "holy grail." However. My partner, who graciously tags along and searches with me whenever I drag him out on hunts often hours (or even days) of driving away, is absolutely enamored by the idea of finding one of these guys. I've heard many good things about Ernst Quarries/Sharktooth Hill and the private land surrounding it in Kern County, but I've also heard incredible things about Florida creek hunting - mostly Peace River and some, unfortunately, Top-Secret spots. We luckily have the opportunity right now to go on one (or both if we play our (credit) cards right) of these trips and was hoping those more experienced in the culture of "Meg Madness" would be able to provide any advice, pointers, opinions, comments, concerns, etc.?
  5. This is a Megalodon tooth that was added to my shark tooth collection. It measures 6.34 inches and was discovered on Java Island, Indonesia.
  6. This fossil is said to be a 6.34 inch x 4.88 inch Megalodon tooth discovered on the Indonesian island of Java! It is estimated that the owner of this tooth was over 15 meters long!
  7. Hi guys could you help me authenticate this megalodon tooth fossil please I bought it from a store that sells lots of crystals,meteorites etc. called [seller name redacted as per forum rules] in Sydney. The colour of the tooth is quite a blackish red colour and it was said to be found in Morroco is this normal ? IMG_0946.mov
  8. Hi all I've had this tooth for a couple of years now, I think it was purchased off a website [price removed as per forum rules]. I've passed it off as real but I'm not sure if it actually is because of its cheap price. Are there any signs this is a fake? Pen shown for size
  9. Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!
  10. I just bought this megalodon tooth online, and I was wondering if someone could help me out and see if it’s real. My main concern are these notches/dents on the sides of the tooth (close to the root). It kind of makes it seem like it’s been molded. I’m not sure if this is natural or not.
  11. Dear all, I have recently encountered a very good deal on the tooth attached below. However, the deal is too good so I wonder, is it a fake or is there a chance for it to be real. Deal is around (price removed) for a 10.5 cm tooth Thank you for your help Best
  12. I want to buy this Megalodon Shark Tooth, and I want to know if this is real or not. Can someone help me please? Apparently it's real with no restorations done.

    4.1 inch Summerville White Megalodon tooth

    From the album: Megalodon Collection

    This is an all white Summerville Megalodon tooth. You don't see this color in Megs too often. Almost helps you imagine what a "modern day" Megalodon tooth would look like if there were still around today.

    Hubbell Megalodon

    From the album: Sharks

    Hubbell (juvenile) megalodon, likely from the East Coast. I don't understand the hype surrounding megalodon, but this one was cool enough for the collection. It has good preservation, and the tip is spalled-off from feeding.
  16. Came across this 6 inch Megalodon tooth on the internet. I have suspect this is a replica since the colors seem off to me but not sure. Its also stupid cheap or a clear replica.

    Exotic Megalodons!

    I've been acquiring Megalodon teeth from different localities over the past weeks. It's an ongoing project. I'm thrilled to share the first bit of my collection! I thank various members for sharing their knowledge of these localities with me. I would like to thank in particular @Praefectus for bouncing ideas, and for offering his thoughts on the legitimacy of almost every one of these; I also thank @gigantoraptor for generously gifting me the Dutch Meg!
  18. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out there with extreme budget rare finds especially shark teeth (or from generally exotic locations), feel free to share and I'd love to see! In order of pictures: 1) Two megs and a hemi from Isabella, Puerto Rico 2) meg from Hawaii (Restored) 3) great white from Japan 4) meg from Morocco 5) meg from Cuba (unfortunately stuck on a wood plate but still a lovely display piece) 6) meg from the Phillipines 7) cubutensis from Peru 8) 2 Makos from Mexico 9 & 10) Heavily and horribly restored 5.9 inch Chilean meg (funny story with this one had an even worse restoration on it with made it look no different from a replica, was suspicious and bought it and when attempting a horrible derestoration process and a few slight touch ups of my own a large chilean meg was hiding under the mess, still needs a tad bit of work but I still love I was able to snag a large one cheap in this day and age ) @WhodamanHD Here we go uploaded !
  19. Edit: Wrong use of photos. Will update shortly! Hello! I've been eyeing this tooth for some time now - but before buying I could need a bit of help! The price is very reasonable for a tooth at 11,3 cm and overall the condition is good - which makes me a bit suspicious The market for fossils in the country I live in is very niche, which might explain the price, but I would like to hear the opinion from folks that have more knowledge than I do. Cheers! Anne
  20. I have here a Meg from Florida. Does it look like it has any repairs or restorations done to it?

    Megalodon or Great White?

    This is advertised as a Megalodon, but it looks Great White to me. I'm not sure if the bourlette is in fact absent or simply worn off. It's almost 2 3/4", so it would be a formidable Great White if it is one. Location isn't mentioned
  22. This is an Indonesian Megalodon, 2.8" along the slant. The claim is that there's no restorations. I don't see any, and would appreciate more eyes on this. Thank you, Bellamy
  23. I have a question that, to an extent, is about this specific tooth. But it's also a general one. The seller claims this is a Peruvian Megalodon. How can that claim be verified? The colors seem to match up, but I've also seen similarly light-colored teeth from other localities. Is there anything else I can look for, or is it mostly the seller's reputation one has to go off? I'm interested in collecting Megalodon teeth from various exotic localities, so this is also a concern for Megs from Java, the Caribbean, New Caledonia, etc. Other than color, I know that teeth from New Caledonia teeth often contain damage from dredging, so I suppose that's another way to verify a claim for that locality. Thank you, Bellamy
  24. I'd like some opinions on one more Megalodon tooth, please. It's 5.8". This one I am suspicious of because it looks a lot more polished than most of the teeth I've seen that were found in the Atlantic Ocean. The claim is no restorations, in any event, so some more eyes would be great. Thank you, Bellamy

    Megalodon Tooth Locality Identification

    I have here a Megalodon tooth. The one who sold it to me mention it's from Florida. I'm interested to know the locality because I'd like to acquire Megalodon from every major site. This looks Bone Valley to me, based on the coloration. Could anyone confirm if that's enough to say so?
