Windy Fossil Hunting Trip

I made it out to the Chesapeake Bay yesterday to hunt for some shark teeth and other fossils. The wind was pretty brutal, but it was a good trip - one of the best trips I've had to this particular location. Maybe all the recent snowstorms helped.

I found several good sized Snaggletooth Shark teeth - which is the largest tooth in the photo below.

Here are the days finds. The highlights include a large Sand Tiger tooth (the long tooth next to the glass) and the largest Ray teeth plate I've found (the comb looking thing in the center).

The sand tiger tooth - almost an inch and a half - made the trip a success.

  1. Wow! That's a gigantic shark's tooth. Looks like it was worth braving the wind!
