Fossil Collecting for Shark Teeth in South Carolina
The Lowcountry of South Carolina; a fossil hunters paradise
This summer we took a trip back to the lowcountry to play in Charleston, Hilton Head, and of course... to fossil hunt!
Video of dolphins playing in an inlet in South Carolina. No dolphina were hurt!
Before going down south, I made arrangements to hook up with
Ditchweezil. The plans were to meet up with him at a dive/snorkel
spot and find tons of fossil shark teeth! As the fossil day neared, the
day that I would find 7" megalodon teeth and an articulated Squalodon, I lost my patience, and went to the river a
day early to scope it out. Amy and I geared up and headed in. A few minutes later we were sifting through sand trying
to find the buried formation below. About an hour later we were still sifting through the sand trying to find the
formation. We found a few small spots where the formation wasn't buried too deep, and found a few small teeth. After
a disappointing few hours, we decided to head out and wait for tomorrow, when we would meet with Ditchweezil, to see if
he had any secret wisdom to share about finding the formation in the river.
Here's a pic of the river before and after the torrential downpours.
Ditchweezils finds. The mako is roughly 2" in length.
Here are our finds.
The Angustidens has a chip or feeding damage on the tip, but a cool "lightening" pattern running down the enamel and root.
This is the great white tooth. Too bad it's damaged.
