Bike Riding + Fishing = Rare Shark Tooth

This is a cool story. I went bike riding with my little brother to another neighborhood to go fishing in one of the ponds. The pond we were fishing at was dug and finished about four years ago. When I first checked this spot out the first few big ponds they dug never hit the layer so I never came back. Now this pond has been grassed over and houses are surrounding it.

 

Right before we made it to the pond I hit a nail on my bike and my tire quickly goes flat. My house is about three miles away. I call the family to come pick us up. We continue fishing and I end up catching a little bass while we wait. The sun has already gone down and there is still a little day light left. I’m making my way back to the truck and I always look down when I walk because I'm always on the look out for teeth! I notice a small area that has not been fully grassed over while I’m walking. Then I see familiar rocks that could only be found from the layer. The first thing that comes to my mind is there has to be teeth! I see a very small triangular shape and I stop to pick it up. It turns out to be my first complete angel shark tooth. I couldn’t believe it!

Congrats on your angel! I too find myself staring down at the ground, no matter where I am, because the material always seems like it might have a tooth in it. If it's your first angel, they must be uncommon down your way. I find at least a dozen or more a year from Calvert Cliffs. Content Quality : 10 of 10
