Over the weekend a friend and I went out for a little gravel dig at a stream near Northport, Florida, that is a little north of the Peace River and close to the Gulf shore. These are the teeth and other bits and pieces I found. He found a nice meg, a nice mastodon or mammouth tooth, ( I can never remember which is which, but he knows). Mine included a 1.5 inch mako, a broken piece of shark vertebrae, several interesting turtle pieces, a small but gorgeous sand shark tooth, complete with cusps, and this bone that looks like a dugong but its edges are both sharp...when I got it home, I realized it has enamel and so is probably a tusk of some time. Can anyone fill me in as to whether it might be a tusk, or some kind of tooth. Thanks. (The sand shark tooth is about 3/4 " , the last photo is the cache of my keepers.
