My second passion besides civil war and colonial relic hunting is fossils.

Absolutely not trying to rob your thread but I thought that it would be appropriate to post my finds in here with your water finds. Both teeth were found by me diving for fossils here in Virginia.

I get the Megalodon sharks tooth but I'm not sure of the long tooth. Do you have any idea what critter this belonged to; whale, porpoise? I laughed when my friend told me it was a petrified sweet potato.

I can only imagine the side of this shark.

No, its turned to stone.

There is a small tad of so-called ivory left at the tip but very little.

I have been lucky enough to have found 5 of these whale teeth diving but they're hard to come by here.

These teeth have the propensity to start cracking and breaking a part after several years. So, after they're completely dry, I fill the hollow root canal with Elmer's Wood Glue so they remain intact.
