Shark Tooth Storage

Recommended Posts

hokietech96

Hi.  Only 2-3 days into the forum.  I have spent a lot of time reading and its making me rethink how I store my shark teeth.  I have about 800 teeth stored glass jars; 1 jar for FL beach teeth; 1 jar for NJ Beach teeth; 1 for big brook teeth in NJ.  I was thinking of separating all the teeth by type for each area by using a nuts and bolts storage bin.  Anyone use something like this?  Thank you for any thoughts or comments in advance!

Haha ... Oh yes.  Leaverites are extremely important the deeper you get into this hobby/vocation. It's good for the next person that comes along.  I think my wife would particularly protest pounds of teeth sitting in jars and collecting dust.  No hording here (ok, a little) :P . But it does help to come home and say "Honey !! .. you shoulda seen the teeth I passed up ... I only came home with these 20 beautiful specimens"

She smiles .. mumbles something about .. that's nice dear .. and we move past it. 

 

Now, if I had come home with a good sized sack of bone bits and shiny little nibs ... haha

Hokie, I started out with the nuts and bolts bins like you posted, but it was always a hassle having to open multiple drawers all the time to find the correct one.  

I would definately second the Riker mounts, plastic sorted cases so you can see what is in them and the gem jars for smalls.

I have a good source for the Rikers I can PM you if interested.

 

P.S. I do still keep the undisplayables I call "Nature's Blems" in a large plastic jar.

I would agree with the above posts, but don't let your stegosaurus walk on the Riker boxes, they can break. I keep a lot of batches in zip lock bags with date, finder and location labeled in sharpie marker.
