Still cleaning off the fossil table

My fossil prep table is covered with little baggies of teeth, all kept separate in the interest of accuracy. Each will be a post when I have time to do it. With yesterday's and today's baggies cleaned, I now have enough open space to put some NEW baggies of shark teeth! These are from a hunt I went late last year to an old pit. Everytime I go to that place, I see the potential for some massive angustidens with the piles and piles of chandler bridge. But I've never found anything worthwhile there. Up and down the overgrown piles, I would occasionally find teeth. There are a few areas there where the excavation has cut down to the hawthorne formation, but the heavy gravel in that area has obliterated all fossils. The enamel is almost always separated from the teeth, and all are badly leeched as you can see from the photo. The only good ones come from the Chandler Bridge. But like I've said in prior posts, its better to find teeth, even broken ones, than not to find teeth.

that big light trapezoid thing on the right side of the photo is a piece of native american pottery. I was amazed to find it at this location. I also found the bottom of a really old bottle, but since it was thrashed, I left it behind.
