Appearances can be deceiving...

I’ve gone to three different places in the past 2 weeks. I just didn’t really have the time to make the posts until now. The first place I hit up was a spot I haven’t been to in months. I found a descent amount of teeth, but no complete whole white megs turned up. The place has changed greatly since the last time I’ve been there and the way it looks it’s going to be gone real soon, sign tears. The second place I went to was an old ditch. I had to dig about 2 to 3 feet down to reach the layer and ended up not finding anything to spectacular. The third place I went to was another old ditch where I found my last whole meg. I got down into the ditch and it looks like someone else had discovered my spot and had dug out most of the ditch. I hate it when that happens, but there was one small area left untouched. So I dug that out and was finding a good amount of teeth for a small area. I spotted an angy which looked like it was descent until I saw what looked like a nick on the blade so I just threw it into my bag thinking it was another crap tooth. The next few days later I decide to clean up my teeth and I noticed that same angy I thought that was crap was actually pathologic, which then made the tooth an awesome find after all.

The first place I went too.
2nd place, the best find was probably the large fish vert
3rd spot, not bad considering the area I dug was only about 4 ft across.
