Good times, Great finds

These finds are the best finds from August, September, and one trip from October. They include a 2.5 inch pathological chub, a 2 inch ric, 2 inch otodus, a smaller chub, and a ric blade that is 2 3/8 inches long. I also ended up finding another arrowhead and so did my Dad. We also ended up finding a nice mako, hemis, a 2 inch Striatolamia and a small posterior tooth which looks like it is probably a ric. The last few trips I have not been finding much of anything but each time my Dad keeps finding nice things. He found the 2 3/8 ric blade and the 2 inch otodus on the same day. Suprisingly the 2 inch ric that I found was the only large tooth to come out of a spot that we tried in August, in that same spot I did find my 2nd lateral xiphodolamia ensis  so I was really happy about that. We are going to try the same spot again one day because I have a feeling there may be more teeth. The pathological chub, small chub, and the ric missing the cusplets were all found on the same day, On that day we also found a real nice hemi. It seems nice hemis are uncommon for New Jersey.
