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....
The Day After Thanksgiving Sales - NOT!   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I got up early today and went to Lowes so I could do some quick things on the house remodel, but by 11:30 I was off hunting. Indiana was already out at the spot that should not be, and he had already been there for over an hour when I got there. There were 5 other people digging at other points around the pond, so I felt like I was hunting in public! Since this was a new pond and I didn't know about the quality of the layer anywhere around the pond, I just arbitrarily chose a spot and sat down. ...
Hit and Run   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Tha duDe, the weEzlinG, and I jetted out early today to get some diggin in before dinner. Since it was Thanksgiving, there would be no crews anywhere so we would have our pick of the ponds. We went over to the Golf Course, and wouldn't you know that they started digging another pond for us? This one wasn't finished, though, so we jumped out of the truck, suited up, and started digging feverishly. Except for the weEzlinG - he just kind of wanders around looking for things to either throw or beat ...
2 15/16" Mako Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
This one looks great on the front - the back is a little pitted on the root. Its huge!...
In and Out   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA
Today I decided to hit Super Pit because its been awhile since I’ve been back there. I was walking around and I noticed that the area hasn’t been affected much by the rain and finding teeth was scarce. Then I decided to do a little digging. I unearthed a nice great white and decided to call it a day....
1 15/16" Great White Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharodon carcharias
I believe this one was a fluke because I was just trying somethin new and started digging in a area where most of the layer was dug out by the track-ho and I found this one in this gray clay that is right below the hawthrone in this area. I dinged a few serrations where the enamel meets the root with my shovel on accident, but its not to bad. The root on this tooth is very well perserved, something you never see on most great whites from here and the colors are great to....
1 13/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
Its not a perfect tooth, but its got nice colors....
2 3/16" Horse Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Equus sp.
A nice, complete horse tooth. Great enamel....
More Lunch Hunting   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA
I had another day where I could take a long lunch so I drove out to Superpit to see if the rain had washed out anything nice. Plus, I always like to check on the place to see if the crews had done any more excavation. When I arrived, it was clear that they hadn't touched it for several months. I'm starting to worry that this pit is being abandoned. I scoured the exposed layer (now mostly just dirt we've already dug through) and managed to come away with a little button meg and a nice horse tooth...
The lucky streak starts back up   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Tha boY has taken note of the killer megalodon teeth I've found at the new pond, so he really wanted to go to say the least. I took him out this evening to try his luck at the pond, but we arrived to a double shot of bad news. First, the crews were working so they would chase us off if they were to see us digging. Second (and 10 times worse), the new pond had been grassed. That means the crews are done working on the pond. Digging in a grassed pond is a sure fire way to get thrown in jail for wi...

1 15/16" Mako Shark Tooth
Just another day at the office   Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
To break the monotony of my software architecture brain drain, I sk8ted a little early for lunch to go hunt the porno ditch. Its the sleaziest place I ever hunted teeth, but hey, who can argue with the results? Nothing is really nice, but I never expect more than a good time at the porno ditch!...
Fortune smiles on me once again   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
We had one heck of a rain storm today so after work I went out to the spot where I've plundered so many megalodons lately. Footprint were strangely absent, but I knew the other fossil hunters were on their way. I walked fast and picked up everything I saw. There weren't teeth everywhere like I expected, but this spot didn't get too much water, so that would explain it. I made my first good find of the day was on the top of the pond. The little meg was completely covered on both sides with mud, b...
1 3/4" Mako Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
just a beautiful tooth...
2 13/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
Not the biggest tooth, nor is it free from wear. The colors are one of a kind, though....
1 1/2" Benedeni Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Parotodus benedeni
The rarest of the rare! A superbly colored, well-preserved parotodus tooth....
5 5/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
This tooth was lots of things for me today - the last tooth I found, the best one I found today, the biggest one I found today. Its so awesome that my wife said it was awesome, and she normally doesn't care much about teeth. I think I'm gonna call it the prettiest megaldon tooth I've ever found. What a killer! Serrations, perfect root, magnificent coloration and marbling, a small pathology on the blade, big, thick,... I could go on and on, but I'll let the pix speak for themselves....
A November To Remember   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
The remodel is in full swing again, and I spent all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday working on my house. Sunday, though, we finished a little early, and just as I was getting ready to go with her to the bowling alley, she sensed my fossil thirst ahd asked if there was a place I could go for a few hours where I could hunt and take the weEzlinG - he's no good a the bowling alley. I wondered to myself if the new pond that I pillaged last week would be safe, What was there - big piles of dir...
A Change of Mind   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Well today I really wasn’t suppose to go toothing because I had a lot of things to do around the house. thA duDe called me and asked me if I wanted to go and my mom said no, but I was talking to thA duDe for awhile on the phone and she changed her mind just in time. I’m so glad she did because I found the biggest complete whole meg in my collection today. ...

A Change of Mind
1 11/16" Great White Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharodon carcharias
I've found a large number of great whites from this spot and this one was the only one with the root fully intact. Has great color and serrations are slightly worn. Just a great tooth because I hardly find great whites with the root intact....
5 5/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
After going to this spot 3 straight days in a row I finally score this awesome meg. This is the biggest and probably the best meg in my collection right now that I've found. The root is really solid and almost perfect and the bourlette is about 96% complete. The serrations are really sharp and unfortnately I nicked the very tip serration with my shovel and only about 10 serrations are missing out of the hundreds. Has a small strip of peel on the display side thats hardly noticable other than...
Hunting in the Dark   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
This time I had a little more time to dig before it got dark. I dug again in the dark and my mom and little brother took turns holding the flashlight for me this time. I dug for about almost hour and still no whole meg turned up. Oh well maybe next time. ...
Out of Time   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
After seeing ditchweezil’s trip from last weekend I wanted to go out there and find a meg to. I got there late and only had 15 mins. of light left before it got dark, but that didn’t stop me. I had took my nephew with me that is only four years old and had him hold a flashlight for me so I could keep on digging :). About 15mins later he was already tired so I decided to just give up for now and try again tomorrow. ...
Turkey Day   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA

2th h00ver called me up this morning and said "yo weez. let's hunt." I was all "fo shiZzlE my niZzlE." Not really, but we did go hunt at a new spot he just found out about. He told me that the other day when he went, he found 5 megalodon teeth lying out in the open. 2 were fully exposed on pedestals. Get this - its been two weeks since a good rain!! This spot has been just waiting to be hunted. I could see the rocks pouring out of the edge from 200 feet away, and I started...

3 3/4" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
This was the last of 3 complete megalodon teeth I found this week. I didn't get a ground photo of this one because I completely flipped it out of the ground with my shovel before I even saw it. I called today's trip "Turkey Day" because my wife was taking tha b0y bowling today, and I was hoping that my 3 "strikes" today would rub off on her....
1 1/2" Snaggletooth Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Hemipristis serra
I didn't even know I found this until I got home. It was completely covered with dirt before I washed it off. Its in pretty good shape, its big, and its got great color....
4 3/8" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
This was the first and best of the 3 megs I found this week. Great serrations, color, root, bourlette, sharp tip. What more can you ask for?...
2 1/4" Mako Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
An awesome looking mako tooth. Check out those wicked colors!...
Mastodon Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Mammut americanum
To date, this is the biggest piece of elephant tooth I've found. This is still only about 40% complete. Its got some beautiful colors on the enamel!...
3 1/4" Auriculatus Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles auriculatus
Just a beautiful tooth! Rics fascinate me because the nice ones are so elusive. I only wish I still had the ground photo for this one! It was awesome to see it lying in a clear stream just on top of the limestone....
1" Eocene Snaggletooth Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Hemipristis curvatus
What a great specimen to be the first I ever found of this species. Not a scratch or chip anywhere!...
3" Eocene Sand Dollar   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Other
I've never seen anything like this before - Its a sand dollar, but the middle, where the flower looking design is, it is "swollen". When you look at it on the side it looks like a bell or a flying saucer. I don't know what species it is, but if you have any information, let me know....
An Eocene Wonderland   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Today I got a rare opportunity to collect at Giant Cement. Collectors are seldom let in any more, so as you can imagine, I had a pretty good day. The first thing I had to do was figure out the layers, but once I did, I found teeth all over the place. The only problem was that almost all of them were badly worn and broken. Very different than at Lafarge where the teeth are better preserved. I'll bet the reason is the height of the limestone - its elevation was high in the area all around where I ...
Not bad a bad hour's hunt   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I had an hour free this afternoon before I went to the fair with the wife and kiddies, so I sped out to the spot that should not be to pick up anything that was left. While I didn't come away with anything that will keep me awake thinking about how awesome it was to find, I still had fun and picked up a few fossils to boot....
A Super Find at Superpit   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA

You'd think that after the Cypress Gardens Fossil Show, I'd have my fossil fix and would not need to hunt but you'd be wrong. There was just enough light left in the day to walk Superpit, and walk it I did. The first thing I picked up was a big benedeni with no root. It was cool, though, because we hadn't found any parotodus there yet. I kinda figured we would find one there eventually, but now I have photographic proof! I walked on and picked up a really big chunk of petrified wood. My bigge...

1 7/16" Benedeni Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Parotodus benedeni
A rare, nearly perfect specimen - its the first complete one I found at Superpit. I found it laying out in the open on a pile of dirt that I threw aside during one of my previous hunts. Its a miracle that I didn't break it when I didn't know it was there. ...
Petrified Wood   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Petrified Wood
To my knowledge this is the only piece of petrified wood we've found so far at Superpit. Its also the biggest piece I've found to now. Its 6 1/2 inches long and roughly 4 1/2 inches around....
Turtle Femur Bone   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Other
A friend of mine told me this looked like a turtle bone. His reasoning was the S shape of the bone....
1 1/4" Wolf Carnassial Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Canis sp.
This is a pretty rare fossil - a wolf carnassial tooth. I'll likely never find another. I found it splashing rocks that I dug from the bottom of the big ditch. It's very worn - one person I showed it to at Cypress Gardens fossil show said the tooth looks like it was swallowed - and now that I think about it, he's probably right. Shark teeth that have been swallowed look a lot like this....
An unbelievable find at the ditch   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA

Sorry its been so long since the last post - I had a car accident and I was out of commission for a little while. I'm all better now, though, so today, I took the weEzlinG out to the big ditch to reap the rewards of a heavy rain earlier in the week. We walked the ditch up and down, picking up teeth all over the place. Well, I was, anyway. He was more interested in the flat, round, river rocks, but hey - at least it held his interest long enough to allow me to scour the ditch! Several hours la...

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 3/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A nice little tooth with a few nicked serrations towards the tip. I've noticed the cusps of the angys found from the ashley marl look a little different from the ones of the chandler bridge. I was thinking maybe the angys from the ashley marl are a type of species that has just evolved from the auriculatus species and are slowly changing to angustidens. I still don't have enough angys from the marl to prove this yet though and maybe I could just be wrong....
1 15/16" Great White Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharodon carcharias
This is the nicest great white I've found in a long time. Tooth has great colors and the root is a little worn....
Last Minute Hunting   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA
I’ve been really busy lately and haven’t had time to put the post up sooner. I only had about 2 hours to hunt for teeth and finally gave up when the sun went down. I didn’t do to bad and I focused mainly on the chandler bridge layer today and scored two descent small angys....

1 1/2" Tiger Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Galeocerdo cuvier
This is without a doubt the biggest tiger shark tooth I've ever seen. I never expected to find it at Lafarge, either! Its from a marine pleistocene layer consisting of sand and pebbles that I never even knew existed before today. t$ found a big tiger today, too. The excavators must have recently hit a layer that isn't evenly distributed over the property. That might explain why we've never found big tigers there before....

7/8" Goblin Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Anomotodon novus
I do find a lot of these from the quarry, but most are missing the roots and this one some how escaped....
1 1/2" Auriculatus Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles auriculatus
I shaved a little bit of the root off this one I'm just so glad I didn't destroy it with the shovel. The cusps on this thing are really big for a small ric and every serration is intact including the rare tip serration something you never see on most rics that is shown better in the close up picture....

Mr. October   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
The whole gang saddled up today for the Lafarge trip. I always love the October collecting day because weather is always so nice. Today was no exception - it was gorgeous. Plus, the best of all situations happened, too. it poured down rain last night at the quarry so it didn't matter if people were sneaking in. We would get fresh ground to look on. As always, the experienced hunters ran past the first hills to the newer material, but there is an obstacle that you must cross to get to it - A big,...

Mr. October
Mr. October   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Today was the day that the quarry was to open and once again it was my duty to go home with at least one whole ric like every past trip I’ve had to the quarry in which I seem to pull off every time. I rushed to the far corner of the quarry following da f0ssZ who made jumping the ditch look so easy, I should have known it was one of his tricks to keep me from finding teeth right away and I jumped right into a trap because I didn’t quite make it across, but I got out right away losing maybe 2 min...
Mr. October   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I fell asleep Friday to a steady rain, so my hopes were high for a good collecting trip. There was a flurry of activity at the sign-in trailer the next morning at LaFarge since a large number of collectors were at the mine. I wasn't skeered, though. DW hitched a ride into the pit with me, and the vastness of the collecting area left our jaws agape. We philosophized over the correct pronunciation of Miocene mega-tooth sharks during the short ride in. DW left me bedazzled with his skillful lingui...
A lunchtime dig to be proud of   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA
I took a little extra time today at lunch and did something healthier than sit around and eat fast food. Yep, you guessed it, digging. The weather was beautiful outside - No clouds in the sky, nice breeze, about 75 degrees. Nice. Really nice. I didn't waste a minute of time, either. As soon as I got down into the pit, I continued digging on my last hole. For the longest time, I didn't even see any fossils besides whale bone. Then I ran across the big horse tooth and I started digging a little mo...
4 1/4" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
4 1/4" Megalodon Shark Tooth
Not the best day I've ever had   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
I got up early today because I thought I was going to hunt in a really cool place. I drove all over looking for the others I was supposed to meet, but in the end, I gave up and decided to look for somewhere else to go. I picked up Indiana because he's pretty much the only person I know who can go hunt on the drop of a dime. We drove to a new lead but they were working so we went on to the next potential spot. It was lame, so we went to my house to grab some scuba / snorkel gear so we could try o...
Mid-week sanity check   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA
Today after work I head straight for Superpit. I needed a fossil fix to get me through the week. It was mid afternoon and I was wearing black. The sun was beating me to a pulp as I willed my way through the quagmire. It was surprisingly muddy considering we've had no rain in two weeks. Two and a half hours later I was sapped, but I had found some nice teeth so I was content. On the bright side, though, some new digging has started so in a couple months when they get down to the layer, we're gonn...
1 7/8" Angustidens Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles angustidens
A nearly perfect tooth....
33" Petrified Wood   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Unidentified - Other
This is a huge peice of petrified wood weighing in at 48 pounds and almost 3 ft long this is the biggest peice I've dug out of the hawthrone layer. I'm guessing a find like this is really rare because I've never seen or heard of anyone else pulling out petrified wood from the hawthrone layer digging that was as big as mine. ...
Plundering a New Pond   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
A friend of mine told me about a new spot, and co-worker of mine told be about another, so we had two places to go. It was hard deciding to dig because tha duDe went diving the other day and he had me itching to do that, too. Anyway, I picked up t$ and tried to get Indiana, too, but he bailed saying he hurt too bad from fishing the day before. All I can say it that it would take a little more than pain to keep me from hunting. We went to the first spot and it stunk royally, so we proceeded to th...
Plundering a New Pond   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Well today I decided I would go toothing with Ditchweezil and we ended up going to the spot that should not be hunted. In just a few digs of digging into the layer I find a shamer great white just a little under 2 ½” and it actually had most of the root to. Than I started digging a different area and I start noticing something that looked more like bone at first and it kept going back into the layer. I was getting real excited because I had no idea what it was and it ended up being the bigges...
1 15/16" Pathologic Mako Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Isurus hastalis
This is a complete but worn mako tooth - no comparison to the quality of the makos I found at Aurora last week, but this one has something else going for it - a really cool looking pathology. Where the blade meets the enamel on the right side is really twisted up. This normally happens on large teeth like megalodons because the teeth become bunched up in the shark's mouth and the teeth wrinkled up to make room for each other. I don't know what this tooth's story is, but it looks cool....
3 1/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
Pretty colors on this little serrated meg tooth....
CopperHeads are bad luck!   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA
Today I really wanted to go to other spots, but didn’t have enough time and it would soon be dark and the Big Ditch was the closest. While I was walking an almost 3 ft copperhead snake pops out of no where just a few feet in front of me. You have to always be on a look out for these things because toothin can be dangerous. I won’t be coming back to this spot for awhile....

Madman Across the Pungo   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
I headed up to da f0ssZ's crib so we could ride together on the bi-annual pilgrammage to Aurora, NC, home of PCS Phosphate and some killer fossil collecting. DF gave me the personalized tour of his fossil room just before we left to whet my appetite. Looking at fossils is always a good warm-up for hunting for fossils. We all have our rituals, whether we notice them or not, but mine actually started last night when I watched the Discovery Channel special on prehistoric sharks that features PCS. A...
Madman Across the Pungo   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA

Well, it was that time of year again, the PCS fall trip. I had been eying the weather for a few weeks, and after the passing of Hurricane Isabel, I thought maybe some nice teeth would wash out. I quickly called Ditchweezil to see if we had secured the same day. Luckily, we both got in the same day and another road trip was in order. We both left the wife and kidz at our respective cribs due to the probable fossil marathon we we would undertake. DW made the ride to my house, and I lead him on ...
