On the second day of out NC trip we hit up greens mill run. Mike T was kind enough to find a super sweet spot for us to dig in. Although not a lot, I've dug in the mill quite a few times and never done really well, today was different. We all got to digging in this one spot and as we worked it a bit we noticed it got better and better, we were pulling out sweet tooth after sweet tooth. The best great white went to Mike with one I little over 2" that was really nice. I got six of them shame the large one has a little root damage, common in this species. There were several two to two and a half inch makos found. A couple smaller megalodons, several large cuviers and squalicorax were found as well. It was for sure the best trip I have had in the mill. Thanks to Mike T for all the help that wekend

Shame there is some root rot, what could have been. This tooth measures a hair under two inches wide. These great whites are tough to get with nice roots
