Off work early to hit the ditches!

I got off a bit early today since I am working the weekend and managed to get in a few hours in the ditches.  I netted a variety of specimen including a few beautiful mako with awsome color, pretty nice angus, and a bunch of pieces of teeth I wish were whole.  All have great color.  There was offcourse a bunch of small ones I couldn't help but pickup.  I also found some vert and horse teeth.  The most interesting specimen is the piece of jaw bone which I believe is from the upper jaw of a barracuda.  It isn't in great shape, but it is my first chunk of jaw bone with teeth.

Deloi, I believe your piece of jaw with teeth is from a Wahoo fish. Google other Wahoo specimens for comparison. Lateral Barracuda teeth are symmetrical like Wahoo teeth but they come to a distinct point. Awesome mixture of stuff you found though - great colors. Eventually you'll get a nice complete specimen.
