We had a wonderful fossil hunt in Cottageville South Carolina yesterday. We found lots of pieces of fossilized sharks teeth and even found a few complete teeth. The types of sharks teeth we found were Angustiden, Megalodon, Snaggletooth, and Tiger. One Squalodon whale tooth was found. Quite a few pieces of petrified wood were found and collected. The Edisto river was absolutely gorgeous yesterday. The early morning fog rising off the flat, black, still water and the sounds of the critters waking and sounding out made for a wonderful experience. The water was actually moving but not very fast. The current was perfect for fossil hunting. The diving was easy. The backwoods river was at 10-15 feet with no boat traffic. We had visibility, and 5-7mm of neoprene, with hood, kept one as comfortable as laying at home on the sofa. The participants were John (Surry Virginia), Rusty (Port St. Lucie Florida), Clint (Columbia SC), Phil (Eutaville SC), Lee (James Island SC)

Gray clay under sand. Few critters. 7-8 foot depth max. Bits, pieces, small teeth, untill the 4" Angustien (or Ariculatis) came up from the bottom. (my four Hemi's did not make the photo shoot)
