“ THE FORGOTTEN HUNTER”
It has been about three years since I have posted on this
site. I took some time off due to other activities and priorities. This year I
have made it out to the beach about 4-5 times and the addiction for prehistoric
Marine Fossils has seemed to do none other than re surface for me here
recently. It is just something about these solo excursions that keep me wanting
more and more (and I really am a huge people person). After numerous times
hunting for the past three years and finding a fair abundance of teeth ( a few nice
Hemi’s, Makos, Tigers and Sand Tiger teeth) I cannot begin to explain the
feeling of accomplishment or astonishment I had when I found my First MEG tooth
earlier this month. Every time before then I kept telling myself, “just keep
going, it will happen, just keep going”. Well finally it did. It is a small
2.5” MEG tooth but it is in pristine shape considering all of us on this site
know that it is millions and millions of years old. You know my friends tell me
they just can’t get into a hobby like this. I say even though you have never
been? have never tried? But that is more than okay with me. That leaves more
teeth for me and you guys reading this post..Lol.
Included in the attached picture are my shark teeth finds,
shark/ray teeth finds this year. I do have some doubt as to what kind of teeth
are displayed in the one picture. Maybe you can help me identify them? DBTB and
GIOVINN if you hit this spot hit me back. Need to get your phone numbers again.
I would love to catch up!
Last words from the “forgotten hunter”. People say that they
don’t like to live in the past and they would be just fine to forget about it.
I use these fossils as an example. THE PAST BOTH PROVIDES US CLUES AND HOLDS THE
KEYS TO THE FUTURE. Good luck guys!!!
See you on the beach feet in the water and hands in the sand!
