what is a fossil?

Fossil colleting trip taken on 1-26-17 by Mel

Get while the getting is good is a good motto to fossil by. The winds were still blowing causing a super low tide, so a hunt was again warranted and boy was it a good one. It started early with just a smidgen of a root corner exposed. Thinking nothing other than, what is that, flip it over and out comes a colorful, serrated, over four inch megalodon tooth. Not even a few minutes into the hunt and my trip had been made. We proceeded to hunt finding various bones and vertebrae scattered along the beach. We approached an area where I saw what looked like a damaged meg. I picked it up and to my surprise it was pathological not damaged, always nice to find pathilogical megalodon teeth. In the next about fifteen feet of beach I found three more megs, ending the brief flurry with the awesome 4.75" tooth. It was just laying out amongst a pile of rocks, this tooth is super thick and awesome. Having already had an incredible day, on the walk out, I was flipping over clay boulders and came across the 4.5" megalodon tooth with lots of feeding damage. What a great blessed day!!!

This is an interesting tooth. The blade is all smooshed in and perpendicular to the rest of the crown. Looks like there was something that caused this tooth to form funny.
