I was looking over the lack of high quality angys in my collection. I only have a small handful of really nice ones and I figured it’s time to try to expand the collection. The only place near by where I know I could have a good chance at finding a high quality angy was the ditch near my house. I hit up the chandler and after digging for some time I began to see a root, cusps, and enamel exposed. I was thinking score! Nope, it can’t always be that easy. It had some minor feeding damage and pitting on the back side of the root, but man it would have been killer. My little brother found a smaller angy digging as well with the same results, which is pictured in the photo to the right of mine. I’m going to hit up the ditch again this week. Hopefully, this time I’ll score.
