Another One!

On Thursday I hit the beach for a quick hunt.  I didn't find any monster teeth, but I did find a Squalicorax tooth.  There have been three of these Cretaceous Crow Shark teeth found along this beach by BRF members just in the past few months.  I also found a shamer of a squalodon tooth- the root measures just a hair under 2 inches, but the crown is completely gone.  Plus the coolest chunk of fossil wood I've ever found.

My last trip there didn't produce any big teeth. I'll have to post a pic later, been lazy lately. My trip was similar, not much but the usual stuff, but did find what I think is a 2" or so Squalodon tooth, and also a very nice cow shark with 7 conules. About the Squalicorax, now I doubt that anyone is leaving them behind. They must be reworked from older sediments or thrown up on the beach from past storms, perhaps float from millions of years ago.
