 I wanted to thank everyone on this forum for making the month of January an extraordinary month in my life.  We take annual trips to Myrtle Beach and I have always loved to look for the little sharks teeth in the sand.  After 10 years of this, I have a nice little bottle filled with sharks teeth, none bigger than the size of a quarter. 

 

But this trip I decided to have a closer look at the ground. Without experience, I had no idea what I was looking at. So I just picked up things that looked unusual and brought them back in my room and started posting pictures on here.  I had no idea of the diversity of prehistoric life that I have been stepping over this past decade.  I couldn’t get enough. I started going out at night with a flashlight and  learned to time the tides to see what the sea brought in.

 

 I found over 1000 sharks teeth. But I am truly much more excited about the other little bits that you helped me identify,  pieces of dolphin, whale, horse, giant beaver, searobins, pufferfish and stingrays.

 

Because I was so intent searching the ground, I even came away with an Indian spear tip and a military bullet in concretion!

 

  After 31 days, I’ve brought tubs of fossils back home. Lord knows what  I’m going to do with them,  but I do love to pull them out, look them over and read about the creatures they belonged to. 

 

 I wanted to share with you photos of some of what I brought home....

  A tiny fraction of the bone I found.  Wish I knew what they belong to.....

 Lots of examples of the Exogyra oyster shells which for some reason absolutely fascinates me, and dozens of steinkerns I just couldn't pass up ....

And a bag full of coral, seabiscuits and tube worm colonies I cant show because I reached my photo size limit :)

 

 I can’t wait until next January so I can do it all again. I think one of the nicest surprises was finding this special community.  Thanks for letting me be part of it!

I really like how you have your sharkteeth displayed. You have some nice ones in there.

Some really great teeth.

And I love the coral.

I'd certainly pick them up too.:)

What you have labeled as pufferfish mouth plates are actually burrfish, Chilomycterus sp.
