Rained for weeks!

So for the past month or so, it has rained a few weeks out of the month.  SO you know what that means!    I hit up one of my favorite spots that is being built on as we speak, but still produces.  I found a few teeth laying around, then went to spliting rock.  It was muddy and hard to spot the teeth in the mud.  I split a nice slab, and spotted something black still in the main slab.  I chipped away and out popped this perfect Ptychodus Polygyrus!  Not a huge tooth, but very pretty.  On the way out of the mud, I spotted another hunk of matrix, and noticed a Ptychodus on it.  I picked it up and brushed away some dirt, and there were two less than an inch from each other on the same stone!!  Not a bad hunt!
