Welcome to the Jungle

October is a great month here in South Carolina. Nice weather, the state fair, and of course hunting for fossils in cement quarries. Friday morning was a washout, and that was my scandal for Saturday. I met up with DW for a BRFC pre-hunt brief. It was a short meeting as we quickly headed into the mine. Unfortunately, hunting was again limited to the older piles. After snaking through the 6 foot tall weeds, finally I found some exposed overburden. The rains helped out, and after about an hour and a half of working the washout gullies, I spotted only a root sticking out. I pulled out a beauty of a ric. Check out the pic with the tooth on its root. I ran into DW, and he had a killer too. The mine also produced a few small whale teeth; always a sight to behold. I sifted some of the older material for the rest of the day and ended up with some smaller teeth. Not much quantity, but one nice ric is always worth the trip.
