Another first!

This report is from two trips, one on Tuesday and the other one on Wednesday.  On Tuesday, the wind was blowing really hard all day so I decided to hit the beach in the afternoon.  I did pretty well finding the majority of the larger teeth in the pictures.  Wednesday's trip was great.  I found two squalodon teeth.  Before Wednesday I hadn't found any in over two years of collecting.  The first one I found trying to hide behind a clay boulder.  The second one was found in the water.  That one is in better shape than the smaller one which I found first.

Congrats on the Squalodon teeth!! Those are in really good shape too. Nice Hemis! I think I found my first Squalodon tooth in Surry the other day. It's a little beat up, so it's hard to tell. I know someone else who found one in the same area you did, but I won't steal his thunder... It was nice seeing you out there last week. Take Care. Content Quality : 10 of 10

Great finds and I think they are possibly associated.... - 3/28/2010

I know they are slightly different in coloration but this could have been caused by a number of things. The reason I think they are associated is 1.) I ran into a hunter at the same location yesterday who also found a squalodon tooth (a molar). 2.) Squalodon teeth are farely rare so the likelihood of 3 people finding one in the same area in 4 days is unlikely. 3.) and here is the biggest reason... I am almost certain I found the back quarter section of a squalodon skull yesterday. It was sticking out of a large clay ball and I tried digging it out but it was in very bad shape and fractured very badly. I dug around it carefully to see what was inside the rest of the ball but nada. The money portion was already washed to pieces and what was left was a brittle mess not worth collecting. Congrats though on the teeth and to all the collectors out there... Keep your eyes open for the rest of that skull/teeth. Would have been an awesome find complete. Content Quality : 10 of 10
