Call Him Butter

The day started off with car problems and my overdrive light kept coming on, but finally it went away and it was a smooth ride on to the quarry. I took my little brother with me and he tore it up. He likes to come and find the teeth, but doesn’t care about keeping them, so he doesn’t mind giving his nice finds to me. We were walking along one side with a bunch of green cap and he picks once at a pile and out comes an almost perfect cow shark tooth. The area hasn’t changed much since the last time I was there and all they did was move out a huge area of limestone, which is hard to find anything in. I was focusing mainly on the limestone today doing crawls on the ground in hopes of finding one of those six-gill cows and nurse shark teeth. Not one piece of one turned up, but I did find an angel shark, but one root corner was unfortunately chipped off. I also found what looks like a rare bramble shark tooth it’s only about 3/16 of an inch.. the thing is tiny. At one point the heat got really intense and I felt like I was about to pass out and figured it was time to leave.
