Back in the creek...

Another nice day to go hunting fossils...I was off to a creek which has nice gravel deposits in the bottom for great sifting. Upon arrival I was thinking "an angy today would be nice !" So I jumped in the creek. For at least an hour broken and smaller teeth...well a one inch mako which wasn't bad, but I like teeth with some size to them. About another 15 minutes and there it was..a 2-1/4 inch tooth. It wasn't an Angy and I thought it was a Megalodon until I looked closer...small knubs on the side... a chubutensis. Neat colorful little tooth...made my day !
