What I think is two small pieces of petrified wood. I found this in a South Dakota road cut. Date: 75 mya Piere Shale ...
South Dakota Pierre Shale   Pennintgon County, South Dakota, USA
Stopped in a bearly road cut in South Dakota. Found lots of shell impressions and Baculites Galore! No Vertebrate material, but i only surface collected because my grandfather didn't want to keep his car parked in the dangerous highway. ...
Xiphactinus Tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Xiphactinus audax
I found this tooth at Big Brook, NJ thinking it was just a common enchodus fang. Howver, it didn't match the thickness of the enchodus and was later identified as a Xiphactinus tooth. Xiphactinus was about 15 ft long, and was rare on the east coast. ...
Museum of Geology in Rapid City   Pennintgon County, South Dakota, USA
Museum of Geology in Rapid City, South Dakota. It is located in the South Dakota School of Mining and Technology. Great sea monster skeletons and Edmontasaur skeleton. some many micro-bones and teeth to....
Nanotyrannus Tooth   Pennintgon County, South Dakota, USA - Unidentified - Other
I actually bought this Nanotyrannus tooth off of e-bay, however, i did find a piece of one in South Dakota....
Black Hills Institute Museum   Pennintgon County, South Dakota, USA
This museum is located in Hill City, South Dakota. The museum was small, but boy was it packed with dinosaur skeletons. Two t.rexs, a full albertasaurus on the shelf, thousands of slate fish, insect, and plant fossils, and hundreds of dino skulls and models. Also, the suposively largest Shark tooth ever found, Peter Larsen, 7in. If you haven't already and you are in the area, buy a pass. It is like $10 and lasts a full year. ...
A South Carolina Jewel   South Carolina, USA
Coming from the Calvert Cliffs area, I was a little used to finding some nice teeth.  The Cliffs even have a way of imparting rich colors into the enamel;  but nothing would prepare me for this trip to the low country.
In the time between my last trip down, and this one, my brother had spent his time showing off nicely colored, lightning streaked teeth that the Chandler Bridge formation had a habit of making. While I, on the other hand...
Cow Shark Tooth from the SC Lowcountry   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Notorynchus primigenius
The second quality cow shark tooth from the Pliocene land site in the SC Lowcountry. Cow shark teeth are not a common find here so I'm pretty excited....
Nice Pliocene Shark Teeth from Lowcountry SC Land Site   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
This is several trips to the Pliocene land site. I combine them because we don't find a whole lot on a single trip usually. I saw some clearing happening so maybe they will start digging again soon. That would really bulk up production, but regardless I'm still happy to get out and hunt. One of the trips I got a nice cow shark tooth which was awesome. I do love being able to find those locally now. The only place I used to be able to find them was Aurora and we all know how those hunts have been...
calvert cliffs 4.75" chubutensis   Calvert County, Maryland, USA - Carcharocles chubutensis
6 year of hard labor finally paid off. Not only is this the biggest tooth from the cliffs its a chub. ...
things done changed   Calvert County, Maryland, USA

Summer Edisto Trip   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
This trip occurred sometime in June, and was the first dive of the year in the Edisto. My little brother and I took the kayaks out and paddled to a spot that I have not been to in over 4 years. I remember racking in the teeth at this spot, and this trip was no different from the last!...
Scraper Tool   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
one of the nicer scrapers that I've found in the Edisto river. ...
Translucent Spear Head   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
Super cool translucent spear from the Edisto. I think its made of agatized coral which is not native to South Carolina so whoever made this had to trade for the material from Florida....
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....
burtha2   Calvert County, Maryland, USA
Yesterday I called out sick. Went down to the beach around 1030 tide was extremely high but calm enough for me to continue. Found a lot of bone fragments. Most of a baleen whale jaw. One small meg and then a little bit bigger one an hour later....
good start to the toothing season   Calvert County, Maryland, USA
Found this guy posted up under a boulder. The wicked surf from the storm must have ate away the slump pile. Other then that a beautiful thresher, a squalocorax??? Wow...hammerhead and a pathological sand tiger. All pictured on the left of the megalodon...2.5" long...
2-1/4" C. Auriculatus   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles auriculatus
A crisp "Ric" found in the Santee Limestone....
Surprise October Hunt!   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I was able to collected in Giant Cement this weekend. The collecting area was a mix of freshly exposed overburden and some older spoil piles. Some nice Auriculatus came out today...nice to see those serrated beauties! ...
burtha   Calvert County, Maryland, USA
Arrived at the beach around 430. Tide was extremely high but made it around and finally got down to big burtha. Took about an hour but I scraped two nice hemis and a 2 7/16" lower megalodon...
accidental meg   Prince George County, Virginia, USA
I was actually looking for indian artifacts on this trip. Went to my favorite spot by kayak and pretty much got skunked except for a few pottery shards. When i tried to paddle back to my car the tide had fallen so far that I became stuck on a mud flat. Had to get out of the boat and wade through waist deep muck like quicksand. When I finally got to shore i stood catching my breath, looked down and found this beauty of a meg. It's nearly 4 and half inches, has all the bourlette, a sharp tip,...
Myrtle Beach Sept 16-20th   Horry County, South Carolina, USA
We hadn't taken a vacation in like 4 years so we got a chance a couple weeks ago. So as soon as I knew we were going I started to get my gear together. I knew that people were going to be asking alot of what you digging for gold and curious as to wh I'm the onl person with baskets and a shovel. My daily routine would be to get up between 5-6 am and walk before anyone would get out and it paid off with my first fresh white tooth. I must have had over 100 people ask me what I was looking for. I ev...

One of the better angys this season. Crisp serrations and some orange mottling....
A Fool for the City   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
The first hints of fall were felt in the glorious Southland as temperature plummeted into the upper 80s during the day and around 60 at night. Dry conditions have kept the river low so DW and myself decided to don our wetsuits for one last paleo-adventure. We had a few spots in mind; and maybe some exploration; but alas…Artifact City beckoned and the 70s tune of Foghat ringed aloud. We geared up and eased into the tannin treasure trove and I fanned out a broken projectile point in the first hou...
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...
Massive, Thick Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I've never seen this position of angustidens before. Its nearly as wide as it is long, and it is incredibly thick and stocky. Although its worn, its a welcome addition to the collection....
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....
yesterday made it look easy   Calvert County, Maryland, USA
In 20 minutes a perfect 2.25" pops out. Ten minutes later I look down at the water and there's a 3 3/4 laying there. Damn good day Ide say....
1 1/2" Parotodus benedeni Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Parotodus benedeni
Nice colors on this benedeni.
...
Fourth of July Fossil Hunt   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
In this fossil report, I took my girlfriend, little brother (brother $), and his girlfriend out to a creek in Summerville. No fancy nicknames for the ladies yet. Within about 5 minutes of walking the creek I spot a small P. benedeni lying out in the open. I snap the money shot and I am in instant gravy mode. Everyone was finding shark teeth and having a great time. ...
Fish skull cap?   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Other
This looks like a fish skull cap to me. Please comment if you can id this one....
Unidentified Fish Vertebrae   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Other

This fish vertebrae has a very unusual shape and I think it may have been part of the skull. I am not sure of the actual age, but if I had to guess on an approximate age range it would be between Mid-Miocene and Early Pleistocene.

...
Digging up an old trip from last year   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA

This is a trip from last year in November. In this trip report, I was searching for new spots and came across a pond that was recently finished. I combed the fields of dirt from the pond and noticed that there weren’t any phosphate pebbles, which is what fossil hunters generally search for when looking for new fossil sites to collect in SC. I was about to call it quits and leave until I noticed a very small shark tooth fragment that ...

Savannah River Spear from the Edisto   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
In 10 years, this is the best spear I've found in the Edisto. I feel like I have been looking for it for that long too! So many days I went out hunting, hoping that I would find something like this and then when it finally happened it was surreal. da fossz told me its a Savannah River type....
Unknown Artifact   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
When I originally found this artifact, I thought it was broken from another larger unknown artifact. Then, da fossz found another one. It is obviously worked into this shape intentionally. Anyone know what it is?...
Edisto Mastodon Tooth Fragment   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Mammut americanum
The biggest mastodon tooth piece I have found thus far and the first recognizable piece that I have found in the Edisto....
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!...
Juvenile Pathologic Angustidens Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I have never found a tooth quite like this. The equivalent form in an angustidens of an Hubbel. The pathology is a little wrinkle in the front of the tooth. super cool!...

Operation Axl   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
Take Me Down to Artifact City, Where the....

Teeth are choice and the potsherds are, a’plenty.....Axl may not be impressed, but me DW and Weezling’s accumulation of fossils and artifacts will result in paleo-shock and awe! Operation Axl I dubbed this trip…the spot had produced nice finds when DW and Weezling swam upon this great aqueous treasure trove; but alas, it had not been properly fanned. The conditions were as ripe as a peach on a window sill: Incident solar radiati...
South Dakota Dinosaur Digging   Pennintgon County, South Dakota, USA
I recently went to South Dakota to go Dinosaur hunting. We went to a private ranch called tooth draw. We found many dinosaur, turtle, and croc bones and teeth from the hell creek formation.
...
4 inch angustidens shark tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I fanned this monster angustidens out of a thick gravel bar on the bottom of the Edisto. Its the only complete 4 inch angustidens tooth I've found so far this season. Very interesting position, too. I like the exaggerated root lobe. Its like this tooth was stretching so it could hit the magic 4 inch mark!...
Bite Mark Angustidens Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
This gem angustidens from the Edisto has a really cool bite mark across the bourlette....

This tooth has great coloration! ...
3" C. Angustiden   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
My first three inch tooth this year...great colors!...
Noname Spot…For now   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
As most of you know, we BRFC-ers like to name our collecting spots. Typically, after a collecting trip yields its finds, or an event transpires, we will name a spot. This spot was a newer one, and was located after endless hours of searching; its gravel beds appeared untouched. DW, Weezling and myself geared up and entered the tannin-stained waters in the ACE basin to free its fossils from their aquatic residence. It did not take long to find teeth sticking out of the gravel layer. The grave...
Scraper   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
The last hour before we left this new spot, the weezling and I worked a section of gravel close to shore that was loaded with artifacts. We both found a scraper and two broken points. This is the scraper I found. On one side of it the edge was worked to a really fine edge so its still really sharp. 6 artifacts is a really high number to find an an hour concentrated in one 10 foot by 10 foot area. There will be more artifacts in this section of the river - I'm sure of it!...
Pathologic Megalodon Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
Normally I wouldn't post a broken tooth, but I had to make an exception with this megalodon tooth. Its so pathologic I almost didn't recognize it when I found it. The blade is compressed on both sides, the serrations are folded over, and the enamel is just all wrecked. Oh if only it had the other root lobe it would be the baddest patho in my collection. ...
Truck Meg   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
We don't find a lot of complete megalodon teeth in the section of the Edisto where we hunt so this tooth was a nice surprise. Its definitely not the best one I've ever found, but it has an interesting job in my collection. This is now my truck meg - the tooth I keep in my truck so when people ask me what I'm doing and they don't believe me I can show this tooth. Then I have something even if I'm empty handed in my collecting efforts thus far....
Mako Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
We don't find a lot of nice Mako teeth in the Edisto where we are hunting so anytime a nice one comes out it is a surprise....
Angustiden Tooth   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....
Perfect Mako from a SC Land Site   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
The nicest, largest mako tooth we've found at this particular site to date. Superior quality!...
Return to Terra Firma   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
We have been in the river a ton this summer so we haven't really been doing much else in the way of collecting - except at the miocene-pliocene land site. We go after every few rains, and these finds are from two trips out there. Even though there aren't big teeth like in the river, this site more than makes up for it with quality. One notable thing about this trip is that we found the first chunk of modern great white out there. Unfortunately it was broken, but I imagine what could be out there...
Very large & 2 small Ordivician-Devonian Archeocyathid-like sponges   USA - archeocyathid
These sponges were found in rocks dating back from the undetermined rocks from the cambrian-ordivician-devonian periods. They were first thought that they were a thin section of rugosa coral, but more resembles a flattend Archeocyathid. They were found in the Las Vegas district, near the village of Blue Diamond Hill and Red Rock Canyon....
Near pristine Bull   Green Mill Run, North Carolina, USA - Carcharhinus leucas
Found this very nice bull shark tooth at green mill run. One of my nicest teeth to date....
Controversial Mosaur conodon tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Mosasaurus conodon
I found this last year in big brook. Rhoughr ir was croc. Many people told me ironstone concretion, while others said mosasaur. i think mosasaur....
Monster Scapanorhynchus   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Scapanorhynchus texanus
The story of this monsterous Scapanorhynchus from Big Brook is just as monsterously insane. The second year we went to big brook, i went to with my dad, my sister and her friend. we found a modest sample and were about to leave. my dad found this small enchodus tooth and showed it to my sister. then......she dropped it! my dad was pissed and desperatly dug in the dropped fish tooth spot and pulled out this 1.5 incher! a happy accident indeed! it is the biggest and nicest tooth to date! ...
What to do in Kentucky?   Kentucky, USA
What to do with your free time in Kentucky??? How about looking for old dead stuff? Sounds GREAT! My favorite past time is SCUBA diving for fossils. My wife on the other hand shows Arabian horses. Whenever I join her at a horse show, I’m naturally somewhat out of my element and need to find something to do pass some of the time. I have discovered that by doing a little research and exploring on Google Earth, I can usually find some kind of location to do some fossil hunting. ...
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....
Mako Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
Another uncommon find from the Edisto where we hunt....
Serrated Megalodon Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon

Hey Chuck Norris, Here Comes BRFC !!   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
We had a special visit from the Phat Boyz to participate in the harvesting of as many fossil shark teeth as Norris-ly possible, if that is possible at all…stay tuned…more to come on that in the future…As for the collecting, we hit the same area of the river as last weekend and found more productive gravel beds. We didn’t really collect; the teeth just jumped into our peachy bags at of shear fear of being grasped by the mighty clutches of BRFC serrated brethren…The PB struck first with a spear po...
Arrowhead from the Edisto River   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
A nice little point from the Edisto. The span of river where I found this has produced many artifacts over the years....
Associated Squalodon Molars   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Squalodon atlanticus
Here are two of the best squalodon whale teeth I've ever found. the weezling found another molar that came from this same section of jaw. A super sweet find!...
17 Fathom Megs   Onslow County, North Carolina, USA
My friend Bill came up with a great idea. Since we were going to be all the way up in North Carolina for the Aurora Fossil Festival anyway, why not dive the famous Meg Ledge off Topsail Beach? The fact that it wasn't my idea made it an easier sell to the wife and my trip was booked. Of course I had to get Nitrox certified, come up with a dive computer, and learn how to use it, not to mention convince myself that diving over 100 feet deep is worth it if there are meg teeth down there, right? Of c...
Diseased, Infected, Injured, Arthritic, or otherwise Pathologic Fossil Shark Vertebra   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Shark
Here's a first on my list of finds, a diseased, infected, injured, arthritic, or otherwise pathologic fossil shark vertebra. Not sure which because all of those could cause this....
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....
Isurus desori Mako Shark Tooth from the Edisto River   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus desori
A really sweet desori from the Edisto. My best one yet from that river....
Racking my dreams   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
These few days I have gone to the river have been pretty good I mean once in one spot I started to not find anything so I moved back a little bit 5 minutes later I pull up a 2 3/8 inch Flawless deseri. After that on another day We were about to leave so I made my last charcoles breath i hit the water then BAM!!! A Really nice way pathological Megalodon is sitting there....

Best tooth this year so far! Great shiny black color, full serrations, tip, cusps and bourlette......
Dad of Year Nomination Cancelled   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA
With the weather hot and dry the past few weeks, the river keeps dropping asymptotically towards a five year low. When it is low, you gotta go! It was father’s day weekend, and a BRFC family fossil adventure was set….We geared up and floated to a spot in the river favorable to carcharodon collectors of all ages. We had not collected in this spot in several years, and the layer was pouring out of the sand banks. I had two smaller Fosszs to aid in the racking and they did not disappoint. MiniFossz...
Father's Day Trip   Potomac River, Maryland, USA

I got to spend Saturday collecting with my daughter celebrating Father’s Day. What a treat! We had a great time. Our trip was cut short for several reasons, but we still were able to collect some nice specimens including my first ever Palaeocarcharodon orientalis. It’s a bit worn, but still, not bad for my first ever! I have more pics to post later that I have yet to download. The pics that I have today are from my cell phone so I apologize for the quality. I'll take better o...

Nice Squalodon Whale Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Squalodon atlanticus
A pretty nice squalodon whale tooth from the Edisto river in South carolina. ...
Fossil Beaver Molar from the Edisto River in South Carolina   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Castor Canadensis
This fossil beaver molar was a very unexpected find. I only occasionally find pleistocene material in the Edisto but sometimes it turns up and its super nice like this little tooth. I was fanning sand and I came across a pocket on the bottom of the river that had not been eroded in recent history, meaning it has likely been since the end of the ice age. You can always tell by the way it looks completely compacted and difficult to move with fanning the water. That is contrasted by normal river gr...
Yeah Mon.   Surry County, Virginia, USA
Hey guys ! Sorry it's been so long since my last post but I've been super busy!! Here is a fossil palm leaf imprint found in Jamaica on my honeymoon... yeah i got hitched.
