Fresh air and nice porpoise/dolphin tooth

Felt good to get out last Saturday after a long work week.  The fresh air, sunrise on the water, and a few nice teeth made for a nice outing.  No big showy Megs or anything real rare, however, I found an odd shaped porpoise/dolphin tooth with a really long narrow pointy crown.  Not sure if I've ever found one like this before, but if I have, I certainly don't remember it so perhaps this species is a bit more uncommon.  Also found two nice small thresher teeth, with one actually being near maximum size for the species (Alopias latidens) 1/2".

Once again, everything I found was the result of a few hours sifting.  Had I not brought my screen, I probably wouldn't have found very much.  That little bit of rain we got up here didn't help bring down any new good material.  Come on cold winter!

I'm always amazed these dolphin / porpoise teeth are as intact as they are. They seem so fragile! Content Quality : 9 of 10
