MEGALODON SHARK coprolite from South Carolina

JOKE?  No joke!  Anyone in the fossil & shark biz knows meg poop when they see it.  This comes from a diver in South Carolina that usually just picks up shark teeth in the Cooper River, St. John's and St. Mary's River beds.

The carcharodon megalodon lived during the Miocene Epoch - 23 to 5 million years ago. 

 Fossilized sharks teeth, vertebrae and occasionally coprolite (fossilized dung from which information about eating patterns in prehistoric times can be discovered) are found today. Megalodon reached a length of 60 feet or more.

Even FOSSILIZED SHARK PUKE:

SPINY DOGFISH SHARK coprolite from Tombigbee River in Gainesville, ALABAMA (Jurassic)


This small cache of pyrite/marcasite coprolite was found in a small underwater cave/cut in the river.  This is from a prehistoric "Spiny Shark" that presumably inhabited these caves/cuts and left their droppings to become fossilized.  They have been replaced by pyrite/marcasite. Some of these still contain oyster shell fragments indicating that these sharks fed on them.  The piling/mound twisting is caused by passage of the fecal material through a bone-like flap in the anus. 

Turned to PYRITE (Fool's Gold) when it fossilized

2/22/08  A VALENTINE'S DAY THEY'LL NEVER FORGET

 

Having your girlfriend intercept your fossil poop instead of her Valentine present? Priceless.
 I just wanted to e-mail you to tell the world what a great site you have.  From the fine items
you have, to the great service, a five star site if there is one.
I am so deep in the doghouse from laughing at my girlfriend opening my package I can't get the fleas to play with me. If I get let out on good behavior you can be sure I will be back on your site.
Keep up the great work.
Sincerely,

Clay

================

He elaborates:

"My girlfriend overheard me talking about [the special] package coming from the

Carolinas.  When it arrived, she jumped the gun.
Instead of an Emerald pendant that I ordered for her she intercepted my
package of fossil fish & shark poop instead. She was anxious,wanting to open the package, so I figured it
was her package and let her. As I viewed the contents and a very suprised look, it was
obvious it was not her package.
As I began laughing and she started looking angry, I told her HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY. She was pleased when the Emerald pendant arrived Thursday, but she
is still miffed about me getting a laugh at her expense.
Again thank you for having such a great site.
Sincerely,
