back in actionMe and my Dad haven't been out collecting much because his back has been hurting but today it was feeling better so we went to an Eocene/Miocene stream. I dug in a spot that has always produced teeth in the past so I hoped this time would be no different. When I arrived at the spot I could see that new material had been deposited. The day started off pretty slow and I was finding mostly broken sandtigers.I did however, find a piece of cow shark and a small but nice mako so I continued to dig in the same spot. A little while later I scored a complete 2 inch chub and I was ecstatic. I walked uptream to show my Dad what I found and he showed me some small makos and a large xiphodolamia ensis that he found. After looking at each others finds for a few minutes I continued to dig and found a small but razor sharp auriculatus blade.
