4/20/08   Surry County, Virginia, USA

Today I got up and headed out to Surry.  Low tide was at seven and hopefully the storm last night it had kicked a few teeth up.  The hunt started off great, as soon as I got there I found a 1.5'' Sand Tiger tooth.  It wound up being the best one of the day.  The snaggle tooth with the root damage came in a close second - it is solid black with well intact serrations.  I was picking up little teeth ...

Today I got off work at five with full intentions of going straight home.  Twenty minutes later I found myself wandering the banks of the James River in James City County.  I only found two teeth but it was worth it.  I'm off all day tomorrow and will be heading out to Surry to see what I can find.  ...

I spent the last few days hiking the app trail in northern Va. I returned home tuesday night sore looking forward to sleeping indoors and going tooth hunting in the morning. Well rested I headed out to the beach around 11am without checking the tides. Sure enough the tide was high, oh well never stopped me before. I only stayed about an hour but here's what I found.  ...

3/27/08   Surry County, Virginia, USA
Today I went to one of my newer spots on the James. The tide was high but that didn't stop me from finding a few teeth. The first tooth I found was a small one cemented to a shell in matrix. I found some pretty nice sand tiger teeth and a handfull of random worn teeth. The whale bone lodged in rock looked cool and will make a nice door stop or paper weight. The date on the pitcures is wrong but I had already tossed the teeth in with the others and didn't feel like looking for them twice...

Today I gave the York river another try. The tide was lower than the last trip but the pickins were just as slim. All I found was two small teeth and a couple little verts. ...

3/13/08   Surry County, Virginia, USA
I found these teeth on the York River. I've never had any luck on the York and don't go out there often, but every once in a while I give it a try. It's only about twenty minutes from work so when I got off, I headed down to the river. When I got to the beach the tide was high.  I started walking and before too long I found two teeth. At least now I know they're out there. I'll be making a trip out there soon when the tide is lower and will let you know what I...
3/12/08   Surry County, Virginia, USA
Today I got up and headed out to surry. The weather has been great this week so I was looking forward to spending most of the day at the beach. Low tide was at ten so I got there around eight thirty. I found a couple decent teeth but what realy made my day was the porpoise tooth, it was my first one and it was in pretty good shape....
shark rostral node   Surry County, Virginia, USA
The photos are from a trip to the James River in Surry County about a year ago.  Picked it up because of the odd shape and the fact that it looked like something.  Just recently identified it as shark rostral node, basically the fossilized snout of the shark.  Seems to be pretty rare that this part fossilizes.  Refer to the forum section for more info under "shark rostral node". ...

Finally got a storm last night.

3/3/08   Surry County, Virginia, USA

Stuck at work Monday morning on a 70 degree day, I couldn't stop thinking about all the teeth just sitting on the beach with no one to pick them up. As soon as I could get out, I headed to the beach looking forward to the hour or so of light I had to play with. I wasn't finding much, I walked for thirty minutes before I found the first one. The only interesting tooth I found was a small one with two little holes in the root. I have another tooth with a similar hole in ...
