Tooth time! finally!

It is that time of year again! The water is starting to warm up over in the Gulf and the constant wondering what the winter storms may have uncovered drives us to go see. This is a combination of two trips, neither of which went without the technical difficulties often associated with dragging a big heavy boat all the way across the state. Had a blow out on the trailer. Had a fuel line issue on the boat...damn ethanol. But its all fixed and we did find some nice stuff. See for yourself.

First big tooth of 2011! It was mostly buried with just the tip sticking straight up. I slowly fanned it out seeing the busted root at the very end. Still a cool tooth and over 5 inches.
One dive worth of stuff. The mammoth teeth turned out to be real nice after they were cleaned up some. They were all whitin about 5 feet of each other and seem to have similar preservation making me think they might be associated. Wishful thinking probably but who knows.
Here are the two whole ones and one spit tooth.
Nicest I have ever found.
I think this is a upper and the other is a lower tooth.
Why is it that the broken ones would have always been the coolest?
This tooth is awesome. Venice teeth are usually pretty plain but now I have two with really cool patterns.
Real nice Venice tooth. That light colored root is always a nice change from the usual black. And these are usually in better shape all around.
Another really cool tooth. See the other side view pic.
I found two teeth in the same area that have these protruding roots. The lower teeth usually have it to some degree but the next tooth will actually sit like a Auriculatus.
This one will sit up on its root.
Another shot.
A little shameless self promotion and a couple just rescued megs.
And finally a couple nice average Venice megs. Can't wait to get out there again. Hope its soon.

Apple cider vinegar works good. Some people dilute it but I never have. I soak them for a couple hours and try to brush off all the stuff and soak them longer if needed.
