Lee Creek Cow Shark Tooth   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Notorynchus primigenius
I found this crossing a mound of Pungo towards the end of the day on the way back to the bus. I was getting worried I wouldn't find one. I don't find these often in SC, so I like to find one when I go to Lee Creek....

This is an unassociated set of 7-gill cowshark teeth (N. primigenius) from Lee Creek. It includes both the lower symphyseal, and the even rarer it seems upper symphyseal....

One of my goals every time I go to Aurora is to find a nice Cow shark tooth since we don't find many of them here in Summerville, SC, where I live. This is a little gem that fulfilled that hope for me on my fall 2003 trip to Aurora, NC....

1/2" Cow Shark Tooth   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Notorynchus primigenius
This was among the last teeth I found today, and its one of the rarest teeth in my collection. Its an upper anterior cow shark tooth - the one right next to the parasymphesial. It wasn't on top of the pile, either. I found it raking, and I nearly missed it. Glad I didn't! Its a total drooler for a tooth dork like me!...

When I found this tooth, I was satisfied that my hunt had been successful. Everything else I found was gravy after this one. When I found it, I was in the most intense part of my search. My nose was literally a foot from the ground!...
15/16" Cow Shark Tooth   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Notorynchus primigenius
My expectation for my trip to Aurora was to find one of these. It was the first of the nice teeth I found. Its not be the best one out there, but as my first complete specimen, it will always have a special spot in my cases....
