Beach Report 8/12/22 - Fragalodon!

An amazing weather day for Slower MD in August, temperatures in the mid 70s, breezy from the NNW, causing pounding surf (such as it is) and a lot of loss of sand on the beach.

A weird day for fossils, so much sand, so few teeth, only 9. But on of mine was this shard of enamel with serrations, a piece off a Megalodon tooth. Also a small shark vertebra, a small complete ray chevron, and a Tilly bone.
Here's a picture of the fragalodon from the enamel side. If you click on and enlarge the picture, the weak serrations that were diagnostic.
