Fossil Shark Tooth Digging, July 10 2004

My wife took tha weezling out hunting for stuff for his birthday party this afternoon, and I had the house all to myself. I took the spare time to go digging for shark teeth at a spot I haven't visited in a while. I walked a big hill first, and it was covered with Chandler Bridge but strangely absent of footprints. There were nice hemipristis teeth all over the place, so I thought for sure I would come away with a nice angustidens tooth, but it was not to be. To my surprise, I found an arrowhead on the hill and I figured that I did better than I should have in the short time I had. I stopped by one more set of hills and found a spot where the track hoe dug out a little spot and stopped right at the layer. I dug it all out, and there were chunks of megalodon teeth all over the place. They were very brittle, so I had to dig carefully. No tooth came out completely intact, though one came very close. It was a shamer, too, because it had every serration plus the whole bourlette. Very rare in SC land found fossil megalodon shark teeth. As soon as I get a little more spare digging time, I'll go back and see if there are more teeth hiding in the muck.
