Wanted: Modern shark jaw

Recommended Posts

I just got the biggest inspiration from my son Devin. Today Devin had to do his own presentation on a book he read, about shark attacks in New Jersey, in the early 1900's. He got a perfect score based on 10 different criteria!

I just got back and I think tonight went very well. There was a lot of audience participation and a lot of questions being asked. Many of the club members came up after the talk and told me they enjoyed it so that was a plus. I was pleasantly surprised that our new forum member @Al Tahan drove out from Utica to come to the meeting. It was nice meeting him and having a TFF member there to hear the presentation. Thanks Al! We will have to get a hunt in ASAP. I wanted to once again thank @Woopaul5 for the Shark jaw and everybody for their support. I also sang the praises of the fossil forum when asked, what is a good resource to get things identified. A lot of members wore their sharktooth necklaces and brought sharkteeth that they had in their collections so it definitely seemed like a topic most enjoyed hearing about!

I forgot to mention that I was approached by a lady who works for one one the local libraries and was asked if I would be willing to do a presentation for the kids in the Spring. I agreed , so that should be fun. She had one condition which was that I had to bring my two boys, who had helped me passed items around last night. She commented on how kind and courteous they were.

Thanks Gentlemen! It was a lot of fun, especially when members came up to me afterwards to talk. I got a chance to converse with those that I haven't had much interaction with in the past. It's always nice to get to know new people.

Thanks Paul! The jaw definitely was useful in the discussion. I had one of my sons walk through the audience with it, stopping briefly to show each person as I discussed the jaw and tooth structure.

Thanks for the invite to the presentation Dave! It was a pleasure meeting you and chatting a little. Very cool presentation I learned some new shark facts and I also have a deeper understanding of shark teeth and some of the locations Dave has collected at. I do want to find a meg tooth someday..bucket list! 

 

Cant wait to get some fossil hunting in! I can tell 2019 is gonna be a good year for sure.
