Shark Teeth..... and more!
In preparation for yesterday's excursion, I had printed out some fossil identification charts. It was a good thing, because even though Fred was able to tell us immediately what we had found, once we got all the teeth back home it was a bit confusing!
It was a rainy day, so it worked out that we used it as a sorting party day. We found snaggletooth, hammerhead , tiger shark, bull shark, sandtiger shark, sawfish blade, alligator teeth, a few really nice megaladon teeth (and a lot of partials), stingray tail as well as some mammal fossils-- a few llama teeth and parts of a mastadon tooth as well as ribs from a dugong. Amazing!
Justin decided he wanted to make a shark on his collection box out of the teeth. Awesome! Washington County Fair, here we come.
