Belgian Shark Teeth and Fossil Sharks and Rays in NW Europe
A pair of very informative sites by Guy Van den Eeckhaut (Belgian) and Pieter De Schutter (NW Europe) about many different fossil localities in Europe and Belgium in particular. Good tooth pictures (includes some very rare species) and detailed stratigraphic information.
Cooper River Diving with Captain Tom
Many people want to experience the thrill of finding a big tooth for themselves but most of the best spots are small and in rivers that are very dangerous to dive. Try something safer with a guided dive tour on the world-famous Cooper River in Charleston, SC with Captain Tom McMillan. It's far from a peaceful dive (murky and swift but usually has some decent visibility) but about as good as you'll get and you will find something! For those who want to stay on semi-solid footing make sure and see WILD TOURS/MEGALODON EXPEDITIONS at the bottom of this page for collecting in Florida creeks.
