Rain Rain Rain...with a slight chance of drool...

Ok well it rained hard in Summerville Monday so I was going to take advantage of all the runoff and hit some of my spots. The first spot well I managed to get a nice high yellow sharply serrated 1-5/8 inch Angy after almost stepping on a snake. It was a small harmless one so no biggie...I also managed to find a croc tooth among some other goodies just setting out in the open after the rain. Well I then left that spot and I was quickly off to another spot and within a few minutes upon arriving there I found a 2-1/8 inch Angy setting out totally exposed..I was thinking man this spot is going to produce something spectacular...Well I walked a long time picking up smaller Hemipristis and vertebra... and when I was almost ready to leave there it was...I bent over to pick it up and thought I had found a small Megalodon. As soon as I looked in my hand my jaw dropped as I realized it was a Huge Giant Thresher...the biggest I had ever found. Then... I looked closer and saw it had faint SERRATIONS...My jaw almost hit the ground...A Summerville Serrated Giant Thresher...I couldn't believe my eyes. This must be the Rarest Tooth I have ever found ! I had not even heard of one ever being found in Summerville. This tooth is 1-13/16 inches long and 1-9/16 inches wide and very thick. This tooth has made me one very happy fossil hunter !!!
