I alreay posted my little hunt in Antwerp here. Beside that I also hunted on a few beaches near Cadzand. 

Its quite a popular location and there are many people, who are looking for shark teeth. But the quality of the shark teeth isnt that good compared to land sites.

 

Here are some pictures of the beaches:

I was mainly in Cadzand directly, in the area of Nieuwvliet but also on a beach near Vlissingen. Here is a picture of the beach near Vlissingen (De Kaloot):

Some "in situ" pictures:

Here is my haul:

This was the biggest one with a length of 4 cm from Cadzand:

I was very happy about this one:

A 2.5 cm long Notorynchus primigenius :ighappy: I found it at the "Zwarte Polder" (near Cadzand)

One of the best non-tooth-find was this ear bone of a dolphin: (about 3 cm long)

My find werent that good but the season wasnt ideal. (too hot, too many people, not much wind ...)

Nevertheless I am satisfied with my finds  and hopefully next year I can find even more things ;)

 

Thanks for watching!

A Notorynchus shark tooth would make for a successful day in my book. The dolphin tympanic bulla is in really nice shape (better than the tumbled and worn ones we pull out of the rivers here in South Florida).

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks @Tidgy's Dad! The picture of the Notorynchus was a hard work as you may can imagine :D:D

Great finds Sebastian. You did very well for that location, I didn't expect to see so many teeth from there.

Thanks Kevin! I am sometimes surprised too that you can still find that many shark teeth there! My brother thinks that the people there place the shark teeth on the beaches for tourism :P:ninja::headscratch:

 

I also found this nice 13 cm long plate with many bivalves from "De Kaloot" near Vlissingen:

The most of them are Cerastoderma edule from the Late Holocene.
