Jerry and I found our fair share of cool stuff also, while Tena and Sandy manned (or womaned) the boat, we searched the bottom for our fossil treasures.

One of my favorite finds is this 3" meg with nice tan color.

Another of my favorites is this 3" marbled tooth.

Above three pics: metacarpal, hand bone from Giant Ground Sloth.

Meanwhile, above us, Wally Gator was cruising the shoreline checking out the dive boat and trying to decide if he wanted to jump the sides and have two white meat chicks for lunch!

Wally Gator.

Wally's head is almost three feet long!

"Can you hear me now?"

An assortment of Whale inner ear bones I collected from the river bottom.

Dugong rib bones.

One of the interesting things I have noticed diving in Florida and the Cooper river is that whenever we find a lot of turtle fossils in Florida, we usually find a lot of gator teeth also, the gator's eat the turtles, so there is a ton of turtle remains and gator remains. At the Cooper river, I notice that where there are a lot of Dugong remains, we also find a lot of shark teeth, the sharks fed on the dugongs.
