Day One, The Phosphate Mine

I got the opportunity to go on a 3 day field trip to some local mines and pits with Frank Garcia. Frank is a freelance paleontologist who is credited for discovering fossils at the Famous Leisey shell pit. Our first day took us to a phosphate mine in Hardee county. We were only able to hunt in the spoil piles and not permitted in the mining area. I ended up with a few nice colored teeth, the largest being 2-1/2", a dolphin vert, a piece of mastadon tooth and a couple three toed horse teeth.
