Tiny Treasures

  When I headed out on Saturday morning, I knew that the conditions would be far from ideal.  High tide was about 9 AM, the surf would be high and rough because of all the rain, and more rain was in the forecast.  I knew that surface hunting wouldn't work today, so I broke out my old sifter and shovel, and went in search of the smaller, rarer teeth that can be found here.

  I did collect a few larger teeth, a Mako and two upper Hemis that all measured 1-3/8, and a lower Hemi at 1-7/16, but the real prizes of the day were all small.  I found a pair of sweet Squatina teeth, the larger one a bit worn and the apron broken off, but the smaller one in great condition.  Three Thresher teeth were found, the largest having a slant height of 9/16ths.  I also scored a nice Sharpnose tooth, and several Hammerheads, the largest measuring 3/4 inch.  The lightly worn but nearly complete upper Cowshark tooth rounded out the day.
