what a great way to start the year

After partying like it was 1999 I woke up and drove strait down to the beach. The wind has been blowing all night with up to 50 mph gusts. As soon as we get to the beach my friend and I walk north. surched an area thoroughly. I found the whale skull fragment at that time. Then we walked 2 miles of beach and only found a contortus....Hahaa All the way at the end between some boulders where no one looked was a tiny meg. Nice, broken but it was all I had. I picked up the occasional vert from the icy water only to throw most up on the beach. After being disappointed for 3 hours we decided it would be a good idea to check out where the skull came from one more time. I was flipping boulders....and then I saw something. Really looked like a big tooth partially covered with mud water and ice. I laid a finger on the crown and I knew instantly.

 

I was so thrilled. So pleased. This is the largest meg I've found in 3 years of hunting the cliffs (3 5/16) and its perfect. 

 

So class the lesson of the day is you can never go over an area to many times.

 

Happy new year everyone---tony

everything...Thats right 3 teeth total.
This was from the trip before last. Out of one 10. It looks like a earbone on steroids. Its deffinitly bone. Not very porus. It came in 2 pieces thats why picture quality is interupted by my hand.
another shot. Im thinking manatee because of the bone density. As to what the bone is I have NO idea.
Whale skull fragment from today with earbone still attached. The other large piece of bone was from the same area I think they may fit together but havnt figured out how yet.

Awesome Tony! The Meg is so sweet, it's not a real common position I've seen before - long and wide! Not 100% sure what the bone is your holding, maybe a seal bone. If I can find my dolphin/seal book I'll look it up. I went out today, but hit the wrong beach. Daryl. Content Quality : 10 of 10

After the hunt I had this morning at Brownies, I'm glad to see that someone is finding quality teeth along the Bay. That's one of the nicest Bay Megs I've seen. Content Quality : 10 of 10
