Summerville Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the first angustidens I've found at a land site in a while. I love the colors from the Yellow ditch!
...
2 7/8 inch Carcharocles angustidens from the Edisto River   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I found this beauty on my first Edisto River shark tooth hunt of 2012. If this is any presage on the season its going to be a good year!
...

My best angustidens shark tooth from 2011.
...
Big Edisto Angustidens   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is just another sweetheart angustidens from the Edisto. It has everything except the tip - isn't that how it always is? I don't care, I'm still happy to find this tooth. Its the first I've ever found of this position in this large size....
2-1/2" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
One of the better angys this season. Crisp serrations and some orange mottling....
Unbelievable Quality Angustidens Mega Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I really can't say enough for this tooth. I found it laying on the surface, but it hadn't been there for long. By the color patterns on the tooth, I could see that the tip and majority of the tooth was poking out of the chandler bridge formation, while the edges and the entire flat side of the tooth were still embedded. When it flipped out, it was deposited exactly where I found it. This tooth has not tumbled down the river like so many other sharks teeth we find. The root is the weakest part wi...
Angustidens Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A sweet angustidens tooth in great shape from the Edisto. It was buried under the sand so it was spared from the tannic encrustation so often coating river teeth....
Extreme Pathologic Angustidens Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the most pathologic tooth of any kind I have ever found. The root is compressed, the blade is twisted, one cusp never formed, and there are serrations growing from both the front and the back of the tooth. What a sweet tooth!...
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
What a little gem! Sharp all around!...
1-3/8" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

The third of three fantastic angustidens teeth I found at a new spot in the river....
Angustidens Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Beautiful color on this one. You never know what's going to be under that black crust when you remove it. Sometimes its a mess, but not today!...
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Just a dagger! I love this position....
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A little beauty in great shape. This one hasn't been ground up by the river like so many of the other teeth we find there....
Really Nice Edisto River Angustidens   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
With only a little wear to speak of, this angustidens is pretty sweet. its got all the serrations, the tip, both cusps and a complete root. its tough to get through that whole checklist on river teeth but this one has got it all. i found it stuck in the middle of a pretty compact rock bed. good thing i found it when i did - those rock beds move and this tooth could have been ground up to bits had i not rescued it!...
Nice mega shark tooth from the Edisto   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Another really nice angustidens mega shark tooth from the Edisto. I found it encased in some pretty compacted sand just above the chandler bridge formation off the edge of the main channel. this tooth has excellent preservation for the river which normally blasts and grinds everything to smithereens....
Red Tooth from the Edisto River   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Normally I would set this tooth aside in the "what a shamer" box but this one is just beautiful. On the lingual side its got a pretty river orange / tan color. on the labial side, it is DEEP red. You can only barely see it in the photo, but in person its really pretty....
2" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Best tooth this year so far! Great shiny black color, full serrations, tip, cusps and bourlette......
Button Angustidens Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A cool little button posterior angustidens tooth with a nice twist to the blade....
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Its been a while since I sifted out a nice angustidens from this creek. This tooth came out on top of a shovel full of chandler bridge. I saw it the second it broken the water level, and I worried it would fall into the marky water as I slowly lifted it to my strainer. I pulled out the camera, shot it, and extracted it right away. No sense risking damage!...
4 1/4" Twin Angustidens   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

These two teeth are the highlight of this fossil hunting season.  Both would be at least 1/4 - 1/2" longer if not for the feeding wear on the tip.  Neither are prestine, but both are in great shape for the size and make great additions to the collection.  The left tooth had particularly large cusps with a nice wave action.

...
1-3/4" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Killer tooth. The lingual side still has some matrtix, so I only snapped a labial shot. Check out the mottling!

...
2-1/4" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Probably my best angy from the Edisto over 2". Great color, bourlette, cusps, serrated, and a sharp tip!

...
3" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Not a superhero, but a whole 3-inch angy is a nice find!

...
4 nice Edisto river C. Angustidens   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A small gem angy, and three nice ones found in about 10 minutes.

...
An Angy with some attitude   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

An angy with great color and lightning.  Most of the serrations are present, the tip has some feeding wear, and the root some cracking.  The tooth has an interesting curve to it.

...
Weezling's Favorite Place   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Weezling's Favorite Place
1-7/8" Angustiden tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A smaller angy, but great river quality.  Both cusps, tip, full root and almost all the bourlette! There is some streaking near the tip as well.

...

my first perfect tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
this is a hero...
Carcharocles angustidens tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A really nice looking Carcharocles angustidens tooth from Summerville. I saw it and immediately pulled out my camera. I looked down for just a second to make sure I didn't drop it into the ditch and in that split second I lost the tooth. I stood motionless for 45 seconds looking for the prize. The weezling told me it was under a leaf, and he was right. What a coincidence that the fraction of a second I looked away was enough time for nature to hide this tooth again mere hours a...
Lateral angustidens shark tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Wicked recurve on this beautiful land-found angustidens tooth. There is some minor pitting on the root on the left side, but the blade is so good that it doesn't matter. This is a really wide lateral position tooth that is almost as wide as it is long....
Pathological Posterior Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A wicked patho angy with great river color.

...
Lightning Streak Super Color Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

My favorite finds are always the teeth with good color. They are very difficult to find in good condition, but today I found a really nice one with super color. This angustidens is covered on the front and back with all kinds of lightning strike color patters. To make it even better, both cusps are intact, the serrations are sharp, and the tip is still pointy as ever. The root doesn't have any chips in it, and the bourlette is even still intact. It's tough for me to put this to...

2 3/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A nice angy from the Edisto.
...
Pair of angys   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Two nice Edisto angustiden teeth. Largest is 2.75 inches (+/- .06 inhces).

...
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This lower jaw angustidens tooth is a spike! It's completely symmetrical for that quintessential shark tooth triangle shape. The root is massive, almost like an auriculatus, but not quite. The bourlette is magnificent - Finding this tooth made my day!...
Carcharocles angustidens shark tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
What a killer angustidens tooth! It's without a doubt the best one I've found in a really long time. The marbling on the back is magnificent! This is the spoils of good rainfall - I wish it rained like that more often!...
2 3/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A nice colored angy and the serrations are still sharp!...
Nice Angy   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A really nice angy from Dutch creek....
Colorful Summerville Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

This gem angustidens was prize numero uno for my post tropical storm Hanna fossil hunting at Dutch Creek with the Weezling. This angustidens shark tooth is one of the most perfect shark teeth I've ever found. Its not missing a single serration anywhere. The bourlette is complete and there are no dings in the root. The color of this oligocene Summerville Chandler Bridge tooth is fantastic! I'll settle for one like this anytime!<...

1-3/4" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

I call this one "Black Tip" . Check out the labial side.

...
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

This one is a gem.

...
Patho Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

I have a soft side for pathologic teeth.  This one has a cool pathology where the blade bends towards the top. It also has small wrinkles present on the blade near the root.

...
2" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A nice blue tooth (not for your ear). Classic SC angustiden river tooth.

...
2-1/8" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A great tooth; great color, unique position, fully serrated, nearly complete bourlette, and compressed blade.

...
1-3/8" P. Benedini   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A relatively large Oligocene Paratodus. Nice!!

...
2" Mottled Angy   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A high-quality multicolored angustiden. I love the colors, and of course the fact it has a nice tip, cusps and some bourlette.

...
1-3/4" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Another whole angy from the Edisto. This one has a blue hue to the enamel.

...

A decent river tooth with nice color and sharp cusps.

...
3-1/2" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

This is one robust shark tooth. A tip away from superhero status.

...
Chandler Bridge Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This little sweetheart came directly from the oligocene Chandler Bridge formation that is the base of Dutch creek. The preservation is nearly immaculate. Teeth like this are what makes all the hard work worthwhile. Just a wicked tooth!...
Gem Angustidens Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Its not huge but is sure is pretty. This little pink angustidens really made my day!...
Best Angy Ever   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the best angy I found so far. I found it sifting with the Dutch guys and my dad. They were all surprised how nice it was....
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Another little gem angustidens tooth I found during the Dutchmen's visit....
Angustidens shark tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
What a marvelous tooth! Probably the best I've found in South Carolina for the past 6 months. This tooth was surely exposed by the digging of my Dutch friends. I found it walking up the creek, completely exposed on the last day of the Dutchmen's visit as I was taking the weezling to meet them all....
1 7/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A killer Chandler Bridge angustidens tooth.

...

A killer Chandler Bridge Angustidens.

...
Colorful Summerville Angustidens   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I am very happy with this find. Its a beauty with nearly perfect preservation and incredible coloration. The tip and cusps are so sharp!...
4-1/16" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

What a specatcular river tooth! This one flapped out of the sand. There is slight wear on the tip, and luckily has most of the bourlette.

...
Summerville Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
When I first found this tooth I thought it had feeding damage on the tip. It turns out after cleaning it up the tip is just slightly rounded. It still has all the serrations, full bourlette and both cusps. Plus, the color is awesome! ...
Summerville Angustidens tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
One missing serration keeps this beauty from being flawless. The color is amazing! I waited 3 days after I found it to take the picture because the color is so deep, I was sure it would fade when it dried but it never did....
Fossil Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

A nice serrated angy with the tip and both cusps from the river.

...
Large Super Hero Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

I never expected to find anything like this. When I first saw this thing underwater it was huge! The only small flaw is minor feeding damage to the tip, but I don’t care because everything else on the tooth rules. The serrations, root, bourlette, and cusps on this tooth are awesome! I love the color too! This is by far the best angy I’ve ever found to date.

2" C. Angustiden Pair   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Two sharp angys from the Edisto.

...
4" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

My largest tooth by far. This tooth is just over 4 inches on the slant and would probably be close to 4.5 inches if it had a tip. Its the first tooth partial or otherwise I ever found while diving.

...
Giant Fossil Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is the new king of my angy collection and the largest that I've found to date. This tooth is just massive for a angy and the root is over 1 1/2" thick. ...
Lower Angustidens tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
What a little killer! It looks like an auriculatus, but it came from the Chandler Bridge so it is an angustidens. Every serration is intact and the cusps are deadly little buds growing out of the edge. The tip is extremely sharp. I know the blade would cut through my hand like butter. The root is fantastic with barely even a hint of wear. Its got these giant, bulbous, rounded root lobes that really look like those on an auriculatus. The only flaw is the wear on the bourlette....
Yellow Angustidens shark tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

This is a really nice little tooth with beautiful color. My favorite feature is the ragged looking cusps. The shark tried so hard to grow good ones, but he just didn't try hard enough, and these barely popped out of the enamel.

...

Angustidens Shark Tooth Foosil   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

Another nice little angy

...
Carcharocles angustidens - Oligocene Giant White Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens

The thing I love most about this tooth is the shape. This is a lateral tooth so its very curved, almost like a serrated benedeni (wouldn't it be cool to find something like that!). Excellent overall condition.

...
Angustidens Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This is a really sweet purple angy. The formations around Summerville can produce some wild colors in our fossils....
Juvenile Posterior Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A tiny little gem....
Juvenile Posterior Angustidens Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A sweet tiny little gem....
Juvenile Angustidens Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A pristine little angustidens with absolutely no damage. The hawthorne layer laid directly on the chandler bridge in the pond where I found this tooth. While I was scooping gravel, I skimmed the chandler bridge and flipped this tooth out....
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Here's a litte beauty of a tooth with pretty much every feature - serrations, tip, bourlette, root, and nice reddish-orange color. I wish I had my camera because it looked cool on the ground....
Angustiden Deuce   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A pair of Summerville angys. The smaller one is a gem, the larger has a dinged cusp, but the patho blade makes it a keeper....
Angustidens tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Great color on this little tooth. I almost missed it, but I saw it out of the corner of my eye on the edge of the ditch on the way back to my truck....
Fossil Giant White Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
a little gem of an angustidens from the creek near my house....
Fossil Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A beautifully colored angustiden. ...
Oligocene Giant White Shark (Carcharocles Angustidens) Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
The day I found this tooth I had a gut feeling that I needed to go hunting. I'm glad I listened to my inner fossil hunter because this tooth is probably the best angustidens I've found in 2 years. Teeth of this quality and size are just so hard to find anymore....
Fossil Giant White (Angustidens) Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I found this killer tooth lying completely exposed on the edge of a pond after a heavy rain. I wish I could have taken a picture of it on the ground because it looked awesome lying against the white ashley formation that it had rinsed onto....
2-3/8 Inch Angustiden   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A complete angustiden tooth; only slight feeding damage keeps this one from being case-worthy....
Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This angy has it all. perfect root, perfect blade, perfect bourlette, and one of a kind, wicked color and great contrast....
1 1/8 Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Juli's first ever Carcharocles tooth. This tooth came out of our first ever screen load of SC ditch gravel. Juli wasn't very impressed with it at first but we had a little talk - It's a killer!...
