Potomac Trip 11/01/2009

I ignored the forecast for rain and hit the Potomac River early Sunday morning.  I didn't score any Paleos this time, and no huge Otodus teeth, but small Otodus were abundant.  I found a total of 13 Otodus teeth today, and while most have some degree of damage (one has all of the enamel missing!), three are in great condition.  The largest Otodus measures 1-3/8ths.  Other finds include a 1-5/8ths Sand Tiger, a pretty nice Ray crushing plate, and a chunk of Ratfish jaw.

Hi Tom, I think I may have ran into you on the Potomac early Sunday morning. I was the guy soaking wet heading south with a rake. It was nice meeting you, if in fact that was you I ran into. Either way, nice finds! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Tom, all of those Otodus teeth are actually mine. I sprinkled them around the beach the night before you got there as an experiment to see how many would be found. I had each one laser engraved with an electron microscope, so you won't be able to see my name on them, even with your 16x Loupe. Since you did such a great job finding all of them, go ahead and keep all the dinged up ones, just return the nice ones. You can give them to me at the next MGS meeting :). But serious though, congrats on such a great day there. Lately for me its been more of a famine due to higher tides and more sand. Your number of 13 Otodus matches the one similar day I had there probably 5 years ago or more. I had the same mixed results, with a few decent keepers and the rest dinged up or worn, but hey, 13 is 13! Content Quality : 10 of 10
