Just a little rain and a little luck...a good combination !

Well after the Saturday hunt I was content with my finds for the weekend, but my friend wanted to hit some spots after the rain on Sunday. He somehow talked me into it. After the rain let up we were off and headed to another of my spots. Upon arrival I saw how much layer the rain had exposed and how many teeth were just lying around. Yes during the first 20 minutes all we both could find were broken teeth. My friend eventually found a nice hemipristis and then another. Then I found it !.... with just the blade exposed.. I carefully pulled it from the layer and saw it was all there.. I couldn't believe my eyes...a pristine colorful 1-3/8ths inch Giant Thresher tooth with full root and blade. An Alopias Grandis...a rare tooth and in this condition an extremely rare find !
