Awesome stuff from a new pond!

Today, I was going to go digging at ye olde faithful toothing creek - the Ashley River feeder creek, but something told me to go scout around instead, and I sure am glad I did! I ran across a new pond that was just dug less than a month or so ago, and all the teeth are either whitish or orange in color. After a little digging around, I dug up these two teeth (along with many others, but these were the best). This pond cuts through the Ashley Formation, and no two sites from it will produce the same colors of teeth. I am surprised that these two teeth are in as good of shape as they are, because I have been to other sites with the same sandy, orange clay that I found at this pond, and the teeth literally crumbled in my hands. Today was a great day digging!
