some weird stuff

Wednesday-Thursday last week I was soaking up the teeth from the low tide.(2) I was able to get a nice mako 2 1/8 .

 

 A pathological lower mako. Its the one with the serious hook on it. A nice cow, a couple ear bones.

 

A really weird bone. circular in shape. Very thin...No bone marrow visible on the underbelly...Odd.

 

The coolest thing was a very odd looking tooth I'm not sure what to call it yet. I'm thinking upper symphyseal. H. serra. I seriously need some other opinions on the Hubble shaped Hemi

Nice mako 2 1/8
This was pulled from the matrix between zone 10-11... Any idea what the circle shaped bone is? Looks like a gill more ten a turtle shell.

Your mystery bone is the operculum or gill plate of a fish. The texture pattern is a dead giveaway. It is rare to find them that complete. Content Quality : 9 of 10

Tony, check out the pic of an upper hemi I found back in 2005 (http://www.ecphora.net/mgs/gallery05.htm). Scroll down about half way and you'll see the two hemi's I posted. One of them is somewhat similar to yours in that it is fairly symmetrical. You'rs is completely symmetrical and uch cooler. With all of the several thousands of hemi's I've found, I think these teeth are pathological and not a real positional - but that's my guess. Cool finds for the slim-pickin's conditions down at the beach these days! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Hey, great finds! I would like to trade stuff like this with some collectors from the US. Unfortunately, I can´t seem to understand how I can contact a member of this forum ( either via email or via a personal message? ). If anyone is interested to trade rare European stuff with a German collector, please contact me! Best regards Stephan Content Quality : 10 of 10
