  1. Can someone please help me with an ID on this? I was almost positive it’s a short faced bear, but the person who found it thinks tiger. It was found in Indonesia. It weighs 5 kilos.

    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?

    Tiger teeth

    Trying to use fossil guy to ID teeth from the Calvert formation. Is this a tiger?

    Tiger like?

    I think this is a tiger-like from the Calvert formation. Opinions?
  5. SharkySarah

    Tiger or tiger-like?

    Sorry I’m posting so much. I’m going through my collections and putting names to things. Are these tiger like or tiger sharks? Please note the numbers on the sticky notes since there are multiple teeth. Found in the Calvert formation

    Best Teeth to Date!

    Had an amazing day at the river this morning and found the best teeth I have found to date! Largest semi-complete meg, and two great whites over 2”! The largest being 2.25” which is my new best GW. I saw the corner of the largest great white sticking out of the formation and low and behold it was complete (minus 2-3 serrations near the root), and super sharp! The others were found in gravel beds around a fallen tree.
  7. I found this Hemipristis serra tooth a couple of years back. Looking at the left photo, I noted the bite marks, and the fact that the distance between each bite mark was approximately the same as the distance between this tooth's serrations!! So I make up a possible story. This shark was in a feeding frenzy, and under the feeding pressure, this tooth (like other shark teeth) fell out, but before it could clear the mouth area, the shark bit down again, leaving these telltale marks. There are likely other "possibles", but I prefer this one. Now more recently, I have another

    rapp creek hunting

    Slipped out to the wooded creek. Children(?) have been busy hunting, they dig big holes near the creek bed? Maybe they know what they are doing. I was hoping some spots would yield cow shark teeth, but the kids have been busy in those areas. Guess being out of school so long has them bored, or more likely their mothers want them out of the house. No one was out today. Most areas I hunted were full of gravel and I found lots of broken stuff (not shown), nothing of size. I found a few tiny teeth which might be sand tiger symphyseal teeth; the roots look right , but they are smaller than u

    Holiday Hunt

    Headed back to the Peace River yesterday after a 17 day absence. Water level and flow were a bit higher than I would have liked due to recent rainfall. I just couldn't stay away any longer! When I started the journey to the river the weather was cool and partly cloudy. Half way there I ran into light rain and fog and began to worry I had made a bad choice to make the trip (rain prediction was 50%). When I got to the river I had to prep the kayak under cover as the rain was coming down heavily. It tapered off as I donned my wetsuit and I set out under cloudy skies. Had almost made it to

    Unusual Markings Shark Tooth

    Hi, This question is between categories. Has anyone seen markings (numbers) on a shark tooth like this? I have tried to wipe them off with acetone, and they will not come off. Any idea how they were applied or how to remove them?

    Peace River Visit

    With the Christmas holiday fast approaching I decided on a trip to the Peace River yesterday to squeeze in one last visit before the holiday prep takes over all free time. The morning temperature was in the 50's and fog was present when I got in the car and headed out. The above photo was taken on CR 64 heading east between Bradenton and Wachula at 8:30am. Seeing this heavy fog al the way to Wachula had me a bit worried about what I would find on the river! I brought along my wetsuit due to the morning air temperature, but the forecast called for a high temp of 86 for the day. Getting
  12. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey
  13. Took a jaunt out to Shark Tooth Hill area, Ersnt Quarries to be specific, yesterday. Not too productive, but a few decent Makos, a little (7mm) fish vert, and the one inquired about here. It has the look of a Tiger shark of some sort, but is only 11mm across the root (cube it's on is 1" square). It has serrations on the cusp(let), distal and mesial sides. I don't recall the Galeocerdo Contortus I've seen having all three surfaces with serrations. It looks a lot like a Hammerhead, but I don't see serrations on the distal side on the crown on it. Can someone tell me what this is? Many thanks. C

    Hop 5 03/30/19

    1. Hemipristis serra: One of my first teeth of the day, found in the water. Small, but nice colors and perfect serrations. 2. Carcharias cuspidata: Flawless sand tiger. Symmetrical and super sharp, with both double cusplets intact. 3. Galeocerdo aduncus: Gorgeous tiger, almost looks like a G. cuvier because of size. Very nice root to crown contrast. 4. Odontocete tooth: Little porpoise/dolphin tooth with a long, thick root. In very good condition. 5. Ecphora sp.: A very nice small Ecphora, nearly complete, just missing the white part at the top.

    Rapp beach hunting

    Headed to the beach hoping the weatherman was right and could get to the edge of the shells piled at the shoreline just out of reach. The wind was predicted from the SW, but was calm then switched to the NE, and the tide stopped falling. The temperature stayed about 5 degrees lower than predicted as well. Couldn't get to the line of shells where I expected the bigger teeth should be, but with the wind causing a slow wash, teeth started appearing and I got a good variety, colorful and in good shape, though no big ones (and no cowshark, think I lost one in the wash). Will post the whale verte

    Rapp beach

    Even though the tide sucks and it was difficult to get up early with dark cloudy skies, it is WARM (though the water lags behind), so I had to get out. The tide lines of shells had been spread out more evenly on the beach and I hoped to find stuff there. But first I walked the incoming tide with surprisingly little to show for it (three sand shark, one decent tiger shark and three shrimp coprolite burrows (still drying). Lots of small "whale bone" pieces. Also a flat piece with scales(?) almost painted with enamel, that is flaking off?? (I default always to turtle.) Walking the beaches I

    Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible

    Summerville Creek Hunts

    Otter creek field report 02-13-16: The day turned out to be a wonderful day to hunt South Carolina fossils. I met with one other at 1pm. We gathered our gear and headed out to find the elusive shark teeth and various other fossilized materials. We arrived at a deep cut creek site and began to survey. The first item that was very noticeable was very little evidence of other fossil hunters. What we found was blue marl, tan and brown marl, blue limestone, phosphate, and large stones (gravel of sort). Sanding-in was obvious in 90% of the creek. There were no teeth protruding from the dark gray san

    Calvert Cliffs

    Had a phenomenal trip down at Calvert Cliffs on Wednesday with my three month old daughter strapped to my chest. This trip makes up for my failed attempts in March where the sandbars where at an all time high and made it difficult to find anything. The sandbars pushed up from the storms a few months back even helped me to get to some hard to reach locations. Here's some finds and a scouting report for May of the cliffs. Also recovered a nearly perfect decently sized Ecphora gardenae that is still undergoing some preparation work. I'll take a picture of that and post it later along wi

    Modern or fossil shark tooth

    I found this his big tiger shark tooth at a local rock shop today. The tag says Eocene but no location info is provided and the store worker had no idea. It looks modern, but the enamel has chipped back a bit as if fossilized. Was wondering what you guys thought? cheers!
