The water's not cold anymore!

(Delayed a couple weeks- I messed it up before)

Well a few days ago made it out to a beach in Surry, the water feels nice, and noone beached on every beach in sight.  Found a few teeth, sizeable Sand Tiger teeth, to me..  Was just telling my niece that sometimes 'something like this' ends up being an acorn cap, and it turned out to be this polished vert part.  Also nearby, I found what looked like a wolf tooth with worn roots, according to a picture in "Vertebrate Fossils: A Neophyte's Guide".   Anyone's opinion?  I'm up for any points of view.  Was just finding another heavily sedimented area and finding more, when the thunder rolled, and the rest of us called us in.  (Heard later that there was a hailstorm in Williamsburg)

-Had a stressful moment once, when I thought I may have broken a HUGE soft Mako tooth.... but pretty sure it was just a tooth shaped piece of wood.  :D

Down in Corpus Christi and haven't found anything but some small petrified wood fragments on the beach

Pathologic tooth to the left of the wolf/dog tooth?

nice finds. I'm not sure about the "wolf" tooth, but the tooth to the left looks like a mako with feeding damage.

Click on the Coyote and the the Grey Wolf links- those are the most similar in the pictures I've seen.
