That's not just a Great White tooth, that is a "Daymaker" shark tooth!  What a beauty!!

This is just between you and me buddy, where exactly are we talking about?

( GPS coordinates if you please).

Same answer as last time... specifically between Sacramento and San Diego;)

Could be Monterey Formation, but its outcrops are all over the place between Sacramento and San Diego so pinpoint is hard.

 

Can you at least tell us how you found the fossil, or still a secret? (In the dirt, embedded in shale, in a river?)

The fossil was exposed in the shale. Here is a picture.

Good friend to put you on to a site that yields such excellent fossils. :wub:

Unfortunately I don't think Google Earth will give good enough resolution to match that field photo to a specific location.

Very nice finds.

Not bad for a hour long hunt in an unfamiliar site.

Wonder what a day would yield? Though, I have had too many days where I find something good only to be skunked on following trips.

Those are some awesome teeth..... GWs are one of my favorites to find. And a little local knowledge can certainly make all the difference in a successful hunt or picking thru discards. Congrats on some great finds:fistbump:

Or you find something great the first few minutes you get on site and spend (waste) the next 7 hours pounding the ground only to not find another thing.

Been there, done that!!!
