A near-perfect, serrated 6 incher right on ernst quarries.... what a jackpot.

Too bad my parents have zero interest in fossils, and that internal house problems is holding me back from visiting ernst quarries myself.

 

 But still, once-in-a-lifetime tooth! Amazing find! :thumbsu:

That tooth certainly was well worth the 2 year wait. Experience shows that if you keep at it, then your efforts will be crowned with success at some point. But you never know when that point has arrived, so your description of your thoughts and feelings during extraction fit the experience to a tee. Congratulations on a fantastic find!

Always special when you find a quality tooth like you did and to have it be your first even better.  Nice story.

Great find & nice write up.  Was this at Slow Curve?  Good to hear others are also hunting there now, I was awful lonely during my Summer visit.

Awesome find with spectacular colors. My wife found our first meg tooth and to this day never lets me forget it. Even when I come back with a nice 5 inch tooth she replies, "Yeah but I found the first one.."

 Yes, this was at Slow Curve. Including our party, there were a total of 10 people digging the day we went.
