Another small tooth day

We had been at Aurora on Sunday the 25th and decided to stay over to search in GMR on Monday. On Sunday I found my smallest Meg ever. Little did I know it was going to be another one of those days. I had only been to this creek once before and didn't find a complete Great White that day so that was my goal today just one complete Great White to take back to Maryland.

The first thing I noticed was that there were little piles of sifted gravel as far as the eye could see. I knew there had to be at least one spot the many collectors had missed, I just needed to find it. I found a small little gravel bar in some deep water and the first shovel had the tip of a GW! Twenty minutes later and who knows how many shovels of gravel I spotted a small tooth in my screen. I picked it up to stick with the others when I noticed it had serrations! It was the tooth I was after even if it was a small one. The blade was complete and the root was in good shape. It only measured 11/16th inches but it was grateful to have found it after all the recent activity in the creek. By the time I left I had also found a small Mako with awesome coloration, a Sawfish tooth, and what I belive to be a small posterior crow shark tooth. What a great way to end a weekend!!

hey obsessed1. I was in the gmr yesterday and pulled out a gw that was really small. At first I thought it was just a broken tip but then on closer inspection the top was actually just a little bit of root. I guess it wasn't my day for a 3" gw but it's better then nothing! Good luck hunting in the future.

Hey obsessed one, I have a question about one of your finds. I was looking a little closer at your photos and one of them I have found a few as well but I have not been able to ID it yet. It is in the first photo with all the arranged teeth. Starting at the bottom of the photo, the second tooth in from the left. The little fossil right above it. What is that?
