Did anyone say megs?

Today I decided to go to Top Secret and a few guys were doing some deer hunting and told me they would be leaving in about 30 mins. So I waited because I mean who wants to be mistaken for a deer and get shot killed either way I don’t want it to happen to me. This place had got some serious rain lately and the teeth were every where. In just a few minutes of walking I find a shamer meg pictured below from the black layer and another one that was in the imprint of a track ho machine, but I didn’t take a pic of that one. Then I stumble across the first meg of the day the 3 13/16” meg pictured below. I was like wow finally the first meg that almost completely escaped the track ho. Then I moved on down to the side untouched by the machines. The rain had uncovered a lot of the overburden in one area leaving a nice stretch of layer with teeth just poking out all over it. I found the last two megs over the newly exposed layer just about 10 ft. apart and the shamer benedeni pictured next to the shamer whale tooth. I had such a great time and the day ended with some Taco Bell :).

I would say this is the most teeth I ever found walking in just 2 in a half hours of walking.
A shamer meg, can you spot the other little teeth in this pic?
The shot of the first meg of the day before I picked it up.
The 2nd whole meg of the day from the newly exposed layer.
The last whole meg of the day from the newly exposed layer. I almost walked by this one, just a little bit of the tip was showing from which you can see in the pic before I extracted this tooth from the layer.
The first nice tooth I found from the newly exposed layer. A killer mako just how I found it before I picked it up and theres also another mako in the picture to.
