Rhino!?   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA
One of the most fulfilling aspects of fossil hunting is finding an obscure item that looks like “something” and being able to identify it at home after spending a couple hours doing some research. One of the most frustrating aspects of fossil hunting is finding an obscure item that looks like “something” and not being able to identify it at home after many hours of research, and then having to throw it into the black hole that is my unID’d bin, almost certainly never to be seen again. It’s a ver...

Otodus or Auriculatus Sighting at PCS???   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
This past Sunday was my last scheduled work day in the mine. My girlfriend and I headed off after the safety briefing and made our way to an area we had not visited this season. We found a good Yorktown hill and began the slow process of late season collecting. The hill would not dissapoint us. We found narrow and broad form Hastalis teeth, a composite scute from a thorny skate (only 2 of the 6), 2 unidentified whale teeth, a dozen or so cuviers, and more meg parts than we could count. ...
Back home   Dallas County, Texas, USA
Well, after much fun in Florida, I finally have a report from Texas, about Texas. We have been finding it harder and harder to hunt out here when we get spoiled on trips out to the East Coast and find a lot more quantity. But, you can't beat some of the stuff we find out here due to how uncommon it is and that not that many people find the same things I do out here. I recently suffered the death of my favorite spot ever in Texas, and I darn near shed a tear about it. It was this great ditc...

The pond gets stingy   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
A pile of teeth gets cleaned off my tooth table! One evening about a month ago, I went out to the new pond. There was new layer all over the place and I basically dug until I couldn't see anymore. There really wasn't too much happening on that day. I chalked it up to a day for physical fitness!...

Hunting Bone Valley With The Southwest Florida Fossil Club   Hardee County, Florida, USA
This trip was the reason I went to Florida to hunt. We were hopeful that we would hunt in the active mining area, but instead we hunted the slurry pit. That's where all the junk ends up after it travels through miles of pipes. Pretty much everything comes out destroyed. Still, the 30 people who showed up to hunt looked carefully in case anything somehow made it through. In the fresh stuff at the bottom, I hardly found anything. It wasn't until I moved over to the old stuff that I started finding...
The Texans invade Florida, by invitation of course   Hardee County, Florida, USA
As some others on this website have posted, we were blessed with some major generosity from Rivrdigr and we got to hunt down in Florida at the Peace River and at a mine. I don't have any photos of the Peace River stuff right now, but I have a couple of items from the mine to show. Hunting was tough in the mine since no rain had fallen there in a long time, but there were still some treasures to be found. I found a nice, albeit not perfect, little meg that shows a nice orangeish color with som...
Hunting Bone Valley With The Southwest Florida Fossil Club   Hardee County, Florida, USA
I was lucky enough to be able to go collect in one of the phosphate mines of Florida. I would like to thank the Southwest Florida Fossil Club for letting us collect with them. Although we did not get to hunt in the actual mine, it was still fun collecting over the slurry pit. I just added the April 27th trip from the new pit in South Carolina be sure to check that one out....
Hunting Bone Valley With The Southwest Florida Fossil Club   Polk County, Florida, USA
Day3 was a trip set up by Chuck and the SW Florida Fossil Club to a phosphate mine in the Bone Valley region. About 30 folks arrived around 9AM and were given a quick safety brief and short review of Florida paleontology which included the struggles of all giant beasts that roamed Florida in prehistory. We headed in the mine and hunted new spoil piles of washed overburden as well as the slurry pit. I found a pretty nice quantity of fossils including three-toed horse teeth, shark teeth and a turt...
Westmoreland County - VIRGINIA   Westmoreland County, Virginia, USA
My fossil collecting partner (Buddy the dog) and I went down to the Potomac in Westmoreland County VA where I have often found some fine teeth. We scaled down the cliff and began to work the gravel. Soon I found some nice hemis and the cetacean tooth. After walking a couple of miles we headed back working the surf and found some more nice but not exciting Miocene fossils. About 100 ft prior to scaling back up the cliff, I walked up to talus at the base of the cliff to relieve myself. As I was re...
A Squalicorax that floats?   Calvert County, Maryland, USA
These fossils were actually collected outside my house on the Chesapeake Bay. I was waiting for something nice to go with Croc teeth before I posted. Within about 2 weeks, I these two croc teeth and the two others shown in a previous post. The mako I found on a trip out in my boat the Squalicorax. Notice the pathological bulge on the side of the tooth....
Peace Be With You   Peace River, Florida, USA
The first day at the river I met GMan, GWoman, and Chuck for the first time. Everyone around me was scoring nice megs, but me. Bad luck I suppose, but I did find a large hemipristis and lots of little teeth. The second day I met Rock Splitter, his mom, and girlfriend. This time I found a lot more megs and a nice posterior too. I noticed a fossil in my screen that I thought was just a turtle shell and I ALMOST threw it back into the river. Later on that day DW and Da f0ssZ identified the fo...
Peace Be With You   Peace River, Florida, USA
DW shot me an email letting me know that he, DF, and T$ were heading to Florida. He said they were gonna spend some time working the Peace, so I quickly responded saying that GwOman and myself would be down for a fossil fest. We left Club Greg early in the AM, drove the two hours to the landing, and met at the river at 7:45. We quickly loaded up the canoes, and headed to a spot up stream. There were only two canoes, and to get us all up there, RiverDigger needed to make two trips. We apprec...
Peace Be With You   Hardee County, Florida, USA
The first BRFC trip to collect in the Bone Valley of Florida was set up for this weekend. RivrDigr and the fossil hunting machine Chuck were are hosts. I headed to Summerville early Friday and picked up DW And T$, and after a nice road trip we arrived in our hotel with hopes of filling our fossil bags. Day 1 we met up with G-man and G-woman for a BRFC fossil bonanza. We launched a canoe and began to sift at a spot RivrDigr and Captain Chuck had found. This spot had deep gravel and the racking o...
Peace Be With You   Peace River, Florida, USA
After making a couple of trips to South Carolina it was my turn to return some fossipality. My local club got a chance to collect in one of the phosphate mines here in Florida, which is a rare occasion since most mines want nothing to do with fossil clubs. After sending a few emails I was able to get DW,DF,T$ & R_S and friends talked into coming down to Florida for the weekend. The mine trip wasn't until Monday, so with a whole weekend to kill I decided to show them around the Peace. The firs...
Peace Be With You   Peace River, Florida, USA

About a month or so ago, RivrDigr emailed the BRFC brotherhood to see if we were interested into a trip into one of the Bone Valley mines. After some bargaining with a higher power, I was given the green light. To make a better trip of it, he also invited us to go to the Peace River on Saturday and Sunday before the quarry trip. Da f0ssZ, t$, and I hooked up at my crib and headed southward Friday. 9 hours later and one Taco Bell feast later, we checked into our hotel with High hopes.

it’s nice to be first for once   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
The day before we just received large amounts of rain from thunderstorms that produced tornadoes in some areas around the state. You know what that means when there is a lot of rain there is A LOT of teeth to be found. I woke up at 6:00 AM because I wanted to be first to collect at the new pit. In the end it was worth it and the teeth were laying out everywhere and most were on pedestals. I found a lot of shamer megs, but I did manage to find a few nice angys though....
April on the Potomac   Potomac River, Maryland, USA
In the Spring, collecting on the Potomac at Nanjemoy is always a good day; today was no exception. The number of teeth I brought home was limited only by my desire to bend down and pick them up. Granted, the species variety is limited and the teeth are not that big, however the fossils are Paleocene which is a nice change of pace from the Miocene collecting I normally do. Also, I did find one nice Otodus....

Gnats, Sun and Teeth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I was sitting in the office at lunch last Wednesday wondering what do this weekend. Last weekend was camping, and the weekend before that Easter egg hunts and yard work. Hey, I know, fossil hunting. I called up DW to see what was up. A new spot to hunt, and diggin for Megs no less. DW informed me that the wife was on a relaxing vacation, so what great chance to bring MiniFossZ for his first diggin trip with the WeeZels. And you know….when the cat is out of town, the mice will get down. We hea...

More Megalodon Hunting   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Ever since my first time in the new pit, I knew I was destined to dig within its filthy contours until the bitter end. Today I had an easy time convincing all my kids and even one of their friends that we needed to be there. A new pit is a big deal in my house. It means my wife gets to have a quiet evening at home several times a week. Yah, its tough to talk her into it but somehow I manage to pull it off. We got out there and saw that two backhoes were digging on the hole during the day, so the...
Peccary Tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Mylohyus nasutus
One of many things great about collecting with others is that it sometimes broadens the list of fossils that you can hope to find at any given location. I normally wouldn't go into a New Jersey stream hoping to find a fossil peccary tooth, but JP changed all that after finding this beauty. He was kind enough to loan it to me so I could post it. What a find!...
Unknown Fish or Ray Dermal Scute   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Other

2.5" Eocene Sand Tiger Shark Tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Striatolamia macrota
What this tooth lacks in asthetic beauty is more than compensated for in it's unbelievable size. I had found pieces of sand tiger teeth that I suspected would be in the 2 1/2" range whole, but I never thought I'd find a complete one. An awesome tooth!...
2 3/4" Chubutensis Tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Carcharocles chubutensis
I wish I had a camera when I found this tooth. I had pulled my screen into the water after it was half full so I didn't have to reach as far as I shoveled material into it. As each shovel-load went in, the gravel laden sand would "melt" as the water moved around it. The screen was almost full when I went to dump another shovel-load in only to see this tooth, labial side up, sitting fully exposed on top of my screen. It's the largest tooth I've found in New Jersey....
1 3/4" Mako Shark Tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Isurus desori
It seems that I've been finding a nice anterior makos on each of the last few trips. This tooth on its own would have made the day....
Ransacked!   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I went up to the quarry this weekend to do a little Eocene collecting. I woke up early and arrived early to be sure to explore the good deposits before the other hardcores hunted them all out. I was in but I wasn't first by a long shot. There were footprints all over the material. Up and down every ravine and all over every hill I looked at. Within 10 minutes I decided this was futile and headed for old stuff. Better there than nowhere. I know people always say footprints don't matter, but I dis...
Ransacked!   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I woke up at 6:00 AM this morning and had thoughts of big rics being laid out everywhere throughout the pit because of the past rains, but I was wrong the teeth were far and in between and I was told the place hardly received any rain by one of the guys there. I took one of my brothers out and it was his first time hunting shark teeth. We ended up getting to the pit about 30 mins late because I had to wait on my brother to get to the house. We kept running into ditchweezil a lot throughout th...

A promising new Summerville spot   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I was just sitting there minding my business, being a productive member of society. I was doing my job like everyone else. Then the phone rang. It was a voice I new. He only calls with good news. "They busted a new hole in the ground over here. Looks promising." From that point on, I couldn't concentrate. I couldn't write a lick of code with thoughts of an open pit. I quickly wrapped up what I was working on and scooped up tha weEzlinG for a much needed break. We arrived onsite a mere 9 minutes ...

BRFC Day At PCS   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
The day started off at the bus area signing papers before entering the mine. I met rivrdigr for the first time who was showing off his nice little great white he found at GMR the day before. Then the BRFC hoped on to the bus and on the way to the collecting area we went. I was a newbie to the mine and found myself only familiar with collecting teeth from the pungo and I wasted a lot of time hunting over the james city formation and I couldn’t really tell what the yorktown formation looked lik...
BRFC Day At PCS   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
Our little group of hunters was granted 5 slots by the supreme slot-giver-outer and we used every one of them. Aurora is too good to waste any opportunity to go in. I had no delusions that this trip would be as productive as last month's, but I was excited nevertheless. The forecast was for heavy thunderstorms in the afternoon, and we hoped it would hold off long enough for us to get a full day of hunting in. Its a long drive up there! Anyway, the mostly cloudy skies made for great collecting co...
BRFC Day At PCS   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
With my back and hamstrings still letting me know how much they did not enjoy the time we spent sifting GMR yesterday, we boarded the bus for the Aurora hunt. Upon arriving, it was easy to see how much the reclamation area is closing in on the hunting grounds. It was clearly visible from the edge of the pit, and as Rivrdigr wisely noted, it also is raising the water levels which removes other areas from access – ditchweezil and I actually walked to the end of one of the roads were the stakes ...
The GMR Prequel   Green Mill Run, North Carolina, USA
Rivrdigr and I both arrived at the airport within 10 minutes of each other, got rental cars from the same place, and eventually met up at GMR for a dig. We spent about 3 hours together sifting the creek bottom. We started near one of the bridges and weren’t finding much of anything other than squid blemnas – which are tough to NOT find there. We moved down a bit and not too long I hear rivrdgr say ‘THERE it is’. I walks over with a beauty of a GW tooth – nice and fat. I continued to find ...
The GMR Prequel   Green Mill Run, North Carolina, USA
It was a nice smooth ride into North Carolina. One of our many stops was at a gas station along the way and two guys were getting ready to duke it out at a gas pump for reasons unknown, but it was funny to watch. Then we arrived at Green Mill Run to hunt for a few hours before it got dark. It was my first time at the creek and I would have never imagined fossils being found here. I tore it up and didn’t do to bad for my first time at the creek. Ditchweezil even helped me score a nice crow s...
My Days Are Numbered   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA
As my days of regular collecting in NJ draw to a close, I’ve been hoping to find just one more really killer tooth before I relocate to North Carolina. My short list included any one of a nice Chubby, Ric or P. Benedeni. Not that I don’t appreciate the all of the great teeth I’ve found here, but I know that finding nice teeth of these species in NJ requires time and a lot of luck. Well I’m just about out of time and with only one or two trips left before I go, today was a day of exceptionally hi...
Finally - One to Keep!   Calvert County, Maryland, USA
After years of hunting the Chesapeake Bay and looking for a “keeper” sqaulodon tooth I finally got one. The conditions were right – they were calling for highs in the low 50’s with a 30-40 mph NNW winds so I took the day off work and headed to the Bay. I arrived at 7:30 and hunted my favorite stretch of beach. Found a bunch of nice hemmies and few makos and was ready to turn around to head back when, for some reason, I decided to keep going, past where I usually stop on each trip there. Af...
Hunt Healthy   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I've adopted a healthier attitude towards fossil hunting, lately. I've finally stopped being disappointed when I come back from a fossil hunt empty handed. For the longest time, I'd be bummed when I didn't score a nice tooth. All that has changed, now. Doctors say you've got to stay active to stay healthy so I've started looking at digging as a more fun alternative to the treadmill. I mean, who in their right mind wouldn't prefer stomping though a squalid cesspool looking for pointy rocks instea...
Get Low, Go Slow. The Reclaimation is Advancing   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
The reclaimation is advancing on the southern end of the pit/collecting area. With that knowledge the decision was made to enter that side before it's too late. There is plenty of good Pungo material in that side of the pit and I've been dreaming about finding a nice chubutensis or big hemipristis. We picked a direction and headed off. The mantra for the day was get low, go slow. I have a niece and two nephews so any tooth I find goes home with me and ultimately into their hands. I was f...
1 13/16" Pathologic Angustidens Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
I thought this tooth was junk when I first found it, until I cleaned it up. Overall it is in really condition and shows some neat pathology on the blade. ...
Appearances can be deceiving...   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I’ve gone to three different places in the past 2 weeks. I just didn’t really have the time to make the posts until now. The first place I hit up was a spot I haven’t been to in months. I found a descent amount of teeth, but no complete whole white megs turned up. The place has changed greatly since the last time I’ve been there and the way it looks it’s going to be gone real soon, sign tears. The second place I went to was an old ditch. I had to dig about 2 to 3 feet down to reach the layer ...

5/8" Tiger Shark Tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Galeocerdo aduncus

The Dredged Ditch   Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
A few weeks ago, I spied a freshly dredged ditch in the hood. I waited until it was pouring down rain, and then tha weezling and I went for a hunt. We found some teeth, mostly worn and broken, so nothing great. He found his first arrowhead a few feet from me. What a lucky break! Other than that, we were witness to the wasteland that this creek had become because of pollution. The dredge pulled 14 bicycles, 2 Television sets, a microwave, an air conditioner, hundreds of bottles and cans, and a co...
Familiar Waters   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA
Today was a happy return to the familiar streams of New Jersey. I filled my first screen at about 5:40 AM with the temperature around 45 deg and little wind - very nice collecting conditions. I was meeting up with JP and Tooth Monkey today and prior to their arrival was able to score a couple of nice teeth out of an area that I had worked briefly on a previous trip. The spot had produced mostly partials in the past, but today it seemed to produce a nice tooth on just about every load. JP arrived...

Don’t Let the Footprints Fool You   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
This past weekend was the 3rd collecting weekend at PCS this season. If you’ve been watching the weather you’ve noticed that we have not had any appreciable rain in quite some time. With the lack of rain and the number of hunters the fossils should be getting difficult to collect. The fact of the matter is that there are still plenty of easy teeth to scoop up. Just don’t let the footprints fool you. Many collectors this past Sunday were dismayed to see the sheer number of footprints on th...
Last call at the Junkyard   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
In October of last year I bought my first 4x4, a 2000 Ranger. What a piece of garbage! Weeks after I brought it home, I began noticing a high pitched sound eminating from the transmission. Not good. Second, everytime I pushed the gas pedal from a stop, I could feel and hear a knock. GMan even came up to hunt and was hesitant to tell me what a lemon it was. On top of that, I found out when I bought new mud tires for it that it needed new ball joints. JEEZ! This truck was bad news all around. I wa...
