Santa Fe and Suwannee Scuba Finds

Recommended Posts

hamman88

My friend and I did about 4 tanks each over the weekend in the Santa Fe above the 41 bridge and the Suwannee downstream of Mayo.  I did miss one box of fossils for the pic, but judging by the slim pickings and seeing one guy on a hooka rig on the same spot for 6 hours, I'd say these areas have had too much hunting pressure.

 

The more interesting pieces...

 

A large hunk of mega fauna (giant sloth?)

A piece of chert with econoids

Half a Herty cup

Doll head

A large fish vert (sturgeon?)

And for the detailed picture of the fossil that somewhat resembles a tooth, I have no idea at all! The surface texture doesn't match what I've seen on mammal teeth before.

Isn’t that where the use an oxygen hose running from a boat to supply air so they can stay down for a long time? Mask and air hose no tanks to run out

Sounds good to me - never heard the term. Thanks.
