WARNING - Shark tooth hunting story

The shark tooth hunting has been pretty sweet with all the rain we had this fall. One particularly heavy downpour washed out some great stuff at my favorite ditch. This was one of those trips there are teeth everywhere and I thoroughly enjoyed picking them up by 2 or 3 every time I bent down. There are all kinds of differently colored teeth - yellow, white, orange, blue, grey, green, and sometimes all mixed together. The best finds of the day were definitely hemipristis. I found two big ones. The biggest had a missing serration and it killed me because it was so killer. The second biggest one is a drooler of the highest order. 1 1/8 inches long, perfect in every way and so awesomely colored that it makes me want to go find another one. Its a never-ending cycle, friends. Hunt teeth. Find teeth. Obsess nice teeth. Get motivated to find more teeth. Repeat as necessary.

This is from 2 hours of collecting my favorite ditch. What a haul! It reminds me of the good ol' days at the big ditch.
