There may be a greater probability of finding a $15000 fossil if you happen to be in a specific family who happens to live in Alaska. --"...just out fishing and thought I'd look around for a fossil or two.." :D

A 12' tusk would be a welcomed sight in my sifter! ;)

That is so cool... I get dismayed looks from my fishing buddies when, instead of fishing, they find me walking along an exposed gravel bank, head down, looking for what-ever.

Wild is right. The Tucson fossil show has a number of dealers that sell beautiful carvings made from these tusks.

Man that would be the find of a lifetime! If it makes you feel any better Jack I think jewelry quality shark teeth fetch about 60 bucks/lb :)
