Playing in the Dirt

  I headed to the Bay this morning (Sunday), hoping against reason for something good to turn up.  I was primarily sifting gravel for a few hours, and was finding some nice small teeth, including a large cowshark upper parasymphyseal, a few small but sweet hemis, and a thresher tooth.  I started to head back to my car, but I ran into Tony and Bob. 

  I had never done any digging in the fall piles before, but Tony and Bob showed me the basics.  After a few hours, and a few tons of dirt moved with very little to show for it, I was getting a bit discouraged.  That all changed when I broke open a block of dirt and saw the tip of a Meg sticking out!  It has some feeding damage, but still a good find at 2-7/8ths inches.  I also found a beautiful Peccary tooth in the same area - only the second Peccary tooth I'v ever found.  I also pulled a decent Mako, measuring 1- 3/8ths.

  Thanks again to Tony and Bob for letting me play in the dirt with them!
