1 13/16" Pathologic Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the second killer angy I found today. This one was underwater, though, so I couldn't take a ground photo. It obviously came from the same spot as the first, though. The color is nearly identical....
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

4" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
a gorgeous, nearly perfect fossil angustidens shark tooth from the river. Everything is there - tip, cusps, root, serrations. Definitely in my top 5 fossil finds of the year so far. What a prize!!...

A perfect little posterior tooth....

A very close to perfect little gem. The tip is slightly worn just a bit....
1 3/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Not a huge tooth, but very pretty. I thought about not posting a closeup, but the ground photo turned out so good that I had to change my mind....
3 5/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
One of the sharpest teeth I've ever found! Check out the close-ups of the tip and serrations. Also look at the cool little pathology. This is probably the best angustidens I'll find all year....
2 1/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Here's another pristine, stunning beauty from the grey chandler bridge layer of the latest exposure we've been working. You'll NEVER see colors like these anywhere else!...
1 9/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I found this one a little higher up in the layer, so truthfully, this one was probably reworked into a higher, younger, unnamed layer. It didn't really encounter any wear, though. All it did was soak up more killer colors....
1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth
1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

What a gorgeous tooth! Its the biggest and best preserved I've ever dug from the Chandler Bridge!...

1 7/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth
2 3/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Another fantastic fossil that I dug right from a rich deposit of the Chandler Bridge formation....
1 7/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A few serrations are slightly nicked, but its still a gem....
2 1/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is one of the most beautiful teeth I've ever found. The white chandler bridge layer at this location produces spectacular fossils. I've dug in the same layer for hours in other spots and not found a single tooth, but this one I found by splashing a small area - what luck!...
2 1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Just a flawless tooth! 99.7% perfect. Check out the cool little wave in the edge of the serrations near the tip....
1 3/4" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This was in the very top of the Chandler Bridge / bottom of the wando formation. Its a fuzzy zone where some of the gravel from the wando has "seeped" into the chandler bridge. It makes digging nerve wracking because you normally listen when you dig the cb. when you hit something, you slow down because its always a fossil. when the rocks creep in, though, you never know. I broke one nice one today. This one is whole, thank goodness....
2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A beautifully preserved, fantastically colored, needle sharp specimen from the big ditch. Just look at the killer tip on this tooth!...
1 3/4" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Another little beauty from the big ditch....
1 13/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Its not a big angy, but its special because it came straight from the chandler bridge layer. The serrations are sharp and the bourlette is perfect and some slight feeding damage to the tip keeps this one from being perfect....
1 5/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
There is not a flaw to be found with this super tooth....
1 5/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Charleston County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the first tooth from the Chandler Bridge at this location I have found. They just don't get any better....
2 7/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I walked past this tooth one time today, and I only found it because I finished walking the branch before I ran out of time. Anyone could have found it, too, as it was completely exposed. So much so that I could even tell that it had the tip even though it was underwater. Its definitely one of the top angustidens I have found this year. Its not missing a single serration, the tip is unbelievably sharp, the bourlette is 100%, and the delicate cusps are still perfect. It has some minor pitt...
3 15/16" Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This tooth, dug directly from the Chandler Bridge at the Big Ditch is just about the best large angustidens I've ever seen. First off, its huge. Its only 1/16" short of 4 inches, so this is about as big as these teeth get. The root is awesome. It has no chips or dings - just some stress cracks which are common on large teeth. There is a tiny bit of pitting, but still, its not enough to make a big deal out of. Next, it has fantastic serrations. Not a single one is missing. The cusps are awesome,...

2 3/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth
2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I found this tooth about 20 feet downstream from the killer sand tiger I found today. This tooth, too, was just barely hanging onto the chandler bridge pedestal that the currents had carved for it, but it was still submerged when I found it. It, too, is without flaw. That chandler bridge is some GREAT stuff!...

2 1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth
4 1/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Charleston County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is another of those teeth I'll never forget finding. I was wearing my glasses because my eyes were all messed up from the flu, so I could barely see. I was walking down the road that is around the perimeter of the pond, and I spotted this thing sticking straight out of the ground. My first thought is always "Please be whole", but I controlled my jubiliation and took a picture of it in the ground for future generations to behold ;-) This thing is glorious! 4 1/8" long, 3 1/2" wide and comple...
2 3/16" Angustidens Shark tooth   Charleston County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A flawless, beautifully colored angy directly from the Chandler Bridge. The bourlette on this tooth is amazing!...
2 7/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is another classic beauty directly from the Chandler Bridge. Its 2 7/8" long and as perfect as they get. There are no chips, dings, or other damage of any kind. Every serration is intact, and the color is unbelievable. The black bourlette is draped by a tan band before it fades into a steel blue color. The back has a big dark blue mark right in the center. I'll be carrying this one around for days!...
2 3/4" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I've really been doing well diving lately, but today I set the bar a little higher. This tooth is a gem! When I saw it just laying labial side up in plain view, all I could say was "DUDE!" Along with just being a huge upper tooth, its in fantastic condition. Tip, cusps, serrations, cusps, root, enamel, bourlette, they are all there. C'est magnifique!...
1 1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth, aka. "The Jem"   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This little beauty is as perfect as they get. Not a scratch, nick, chip, ding, or anything. It is such high quality that I will make it into a necklace for my wife. Only 2 teeth I have ever found have been good enough for her to want to wear them, and this is one of them....
2 7/16" Pathologic Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This was the last tooth I found today, and when I first saw it, the only thing I could think was "what a shame". It was almost dark, and the tooth was covered with dirt, but to me it looked like the tip was snapped off. I put it in my pocket and just continued on. It wasn't until I cleaned it up and really looked closely at it that I realized how wrong I was! The tip isn't snapped off - it's pathologic! Yep, sure is! Look closely at the tip photo and you'll see what I mean. There are TWO t...
2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the last of the three beauties I found today. I had just found the 3 15/16" megalodon mere minutes before, and I was still reeling from my own success. Then I saw this little gem sticking up blade first into the sky. This is a musuem piece if I've ever seen one. It has every single serration, a perfect root, and a 100% complete bourlette. And the colors are amazing - orange, yellow, and white. Just a dazzling tooth....
2 1/4" Angustidens   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Here's another gorgeous specimen. A perfect root, 99% complete bourlette, knife-like serrations, and awesome color distinguish this tooth. It’s a beautiful orange-grey color. The Chandler Bridge produces some beautiful teeth....
1 1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
These teeth are very rare, and this one is a gem on top of that. The color is amazing, and everything about this tooth is perfect. Every serration is intact, the tip is sharp, both cusps are perfect, the bourlette is 100% complete, and the root is without flaw. Finding teeth like this make this hobby totally worth all the mud, snakes, bugs, and heat....
1 7/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
What a beautiful specimen. Flawless in every since of the word. Grade A 100% perfect in every way. Every serration intact, the cusps perfect, the root without flaw, the bourlette enamel pristine. What a fantastic find!...
2 5/16" Angustidens Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Here's one from Summerville that matches up to the quality I've been spoiled by at the big ditch. Its a beauty! Light tan and brown enamel, light grey root, killer cusps and tip, sharp serrations, and a really pronounced fanged tip. The color really gives this tooth character....
2 3/4" Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
One of the few teeth that I have that I can say is truly perfect. 100%. NO FLAWS WHATSOEVER. Need I say more?...
2 5/16" Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
The photo doesn't do this tooth justice. It is fantastic! It is a dagger for sure. The cusps, tip, and serrations are impossibly sharp. The root is flawess, as is the bourlette. An amazing specimen!...
2 1/4" Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is one of the most perfect teeth I have. The root is as perfect as can be, the bourlette is 100% complete, the serrations, tip, and cusps are brutally sharp. The tip is wickedly fanged outward as well. I would say this tooth is 99% of perfect. Where is that 1%? Well, I have to be picky when it comes to teeth so this one loses 1 point because it has a tiny patch of missing enamel on the labial side near the root. Most people who have seen this tooth have not even noticed it, but when you sit...
2 3/8" Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
The big ditch has the best angys anywhere! Here's another from the other end. Its flawless except for minimal pitting in the enamel on the labial side of the tooth...
2 5/16" Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is one of the first teeth I found that could qualify as perfect. I was digging in a hole very carefully because I thought I had found a whale skull, and I managed to pull this out whole. What I was digging for turned out to be a large rock. Back then, I didn't really know much about teeth, I just knew this was a nice one. It has a great dark grey enamel, a perfect root and bourlette, sharp cusps, serrations, and tip. Only 3 or 4 missing serrations hold this one from the coveted 100% grade....
2 7/8" Angustidens Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This tooth has actually been in my collection the longest. It has a dull grey color - not too fantastic in that respect, but it does have two other, more interesting qualities. First, it is a lower tooth - you can tell because of the shape. Second, it is mildly pathologic. That curvature near the tip is not a regular feature (called a hook). Not to mention it is 2 7/8" long. And it did not come from the creek! Instead, it came from a large drainage ditch that feeds into the Ashley river....
