Walk of Shame

This is a trip from about three weeks ago. I discovered a new spot with future potential. I decided to take a walk around the area to see what I could find. I ran into a rat snake that was camouflaged so well that I didn’t notice him until I was about two feet from stepping on him! Then I made my way towards a hill of dirt that was rich with fossils. I spot a beasty root sticking out of the ground. I snap the ground photo and pray to the toothing gods for it to please be whole. My prayers were not answered and the beast of an angy measured out to be 3 15/16 inches. The tooth would have been well over 4” if the shark didn’t have to eat!

Awesome tooth! Say, if you want to discourage folks from finding spots like this, start posting pics of rattle snakes (or something else poisonous and indigenous to your area), and see how many folks decide to stay away - ha ha. Content Quality : 10 of 10
