second chances

I decided to give this Cretaceous spot a second chance this weekend. It was very close to another spot which had been fairly good but for some reason when I checked it the first time this summer nothing turned up even though it looked promising. But on its second chance the teeth started to show immediately and some were in beautiful condition. I dug twice for about 8 hours and this is most of the haul. The most interesting find was the Xiphactinus (tarpon) vert, a fairly common fish find if this were Kansas, but for NJ its a pretty neat find.
