The final day of our North Carolina fossil hunting trip was spent in everyone's favorite squalid tributary - GMR. BigRedMeg gave us the scoop on a good hole (which we missed by half a mile, coincidentally) and we hunted the morning. da fossz and I had waders, but our budding meteorologist geologist t$ only had little girly boots so he could only hunt the shallows. I took a picture of them when he set them down. Be sure to check them out below. Next time, he said he was going to bring waders.

Anyway, I was over in the deeper water working a pretty nice gravel layer. I found a busted mako, a bunch of smaller teeth, loads of bellemnoids, then the prize - my first complete great white from GMR. Nothing else really mattered for me the rest of the day. da fossz found a nice smaller tooth, and t$ actually pulled a nice lower great white from the shallows.

Victory Bell was ours, and the ride home was as fun as the ride up. I already can't wait to do the trip again in the fall.
