Lights... Camera... Megalodon Action!!!

Fossil hunting in Summerville isn't what it used to be. Now we're barely surviving, living on bread and water. When it rains we sit and stare out the window hoping that the shower will last long enough to wash out our ditches. We don't dig, we only surface collect so conditions have to be right to make it worth going. Well, today conditions were right and the weezling and I decided to go to a new spot we found a few weeks ago. Its actually not a new spot, but its new to us so we call it the new spot for now. We found it while exploring, and the first time we went was a blast. We found one whole tooth between us and that honor went to my son. The night before the hunt we got drenched, so this promised to be a good fossil hunting trip.

It only takes 25 minutes for the two of us to walk the whole creek, and there is only about a 15 foot span that really produces, but the swiftly moving water during a storm washes stuff downstream for us to prime us for the mother-lode of TWO near complete megalodon teeth, a flawless desori mako shark tooth, and an arrowhead.

If this were a normal trip, my post would end here, but this was no normal trip. A few weeks ago, I bought a new HD video camera and I just happened to bring it along on this trip and we filmed the whole thing. Then I edited the movie down to be short enough to go on YouTube and viola!! Care to come along and share a fossil hunting journey with weezil and weezling? We hope you enjoy our first shark tooth hunting movie!

Great film DW but please spend a few seconds showing the teeth you found before you stick them in your "keeper" pocket!
