Hi everyone, I have a few teeth that I have always wondered about. I found another one the other day looking through washed matrix. Let me know what you think. Largest tooth is 18mm smallest is 9mm. I have only these three from all the years of collecting.
I thought I'd post a couple shots of my haul from this last months museum dig down in Bakersfield, California. It was a decent trip, even with the last day being cut short by rain. I found over 130 perfect makos, plus a few interesting mammal teeth. I found an upper and lower Alodesmus canine, both of which are decent sized, as well as large Desmostylus molar. Unfortunately, I destroyed what was once one of the largest makos I've ever come across. At the end of the first day I took a couple last pokes with the shovel and just blasted this 3 1/8" hastalis. Really bummed me out, but thats just the nature of hunting teeth. There is always that slight risk of destroying a truly magnificent specimen, and it finally happened to me. Joe
Interpaleo posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHi! I've been cleaning teeth all week from my last dig down in Bakersfield and I thought I'd show a couple tiny teeth off. I'll eventually get around to posting the while pile, but its going to take me a few more days. Meanwhile, here's what I consider to be a very nice Basking shark tooth, along with a very large angle shark, and a pathological dogshark tooth. The micro teeth from Kern county are not quite as plentiful as the lee creek material, but its a close second. I always expect to find at least a half dozen micro species of shark, ray denticles, fish teeth, and awesome randoms. And my fossil cleaning helper. Joe
