meg challenged

I'm a little late on my Aurora trip report here now that the season has been cancelled, but here goes. I remain meg challenged in the mine, but I managed to make a few interesting finds including a great pungo croc tooth and a seal jaw segment with molar. Unfortunately the seal tooth has some damage including a stress fracture right down the middle but it is mostly intact so I am very happy with that since it is the first seal tooth in my collection. Thanks to PCS and the friends group for allowing us the chance to collect. I sure hope that the mining and collecting situation can be resolved by next spring.
Location Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA

Hi TP. Cool finds. Although you didn't score a big Meg, compare your finds to what we find at Ches Beach these days - almost nadda! I love the shine on those mako's and the seal tooth and croc tooth are awesome. I've never even seen a fragment of a croc tooth in the mine - not sure if they are found in Pungo or Yorktown. Daryl.
