South Carolina Fossils

Recommended Posts

I found a Mastodon tooth last season and I have been wanting to make a video clip of it. I finially made the clip so I thought I would post it.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of fossils underneath the overburden here in Charleston SC. Too bad there is not an easy way to get to them. I guess if there was an easy way it would take the fun out of it.

Included in the video are: Various SC fossils including a Mastodon tooth, Scallops, Murex shell, Megalodon, and Angustiden teeth.

All these items (except the Aurora scallop) I found offshore SC or in the rivers surrounding Charleston.

Enjoy and happy fossil hunting!

Hey, I remember that day! LOL that sure was a find of a life time. Now you just need ivory to go with it. Hopefully we will do good this year.

I am in N Myrtle now....very small teeth on beach. Nothing on Huntington Beach. Lots of great shells, but no teeth that I could find! I've heard N Myrtle has some better beach sites, but still, small teeth. Let you know if I "find" otherwise!!!
