Fossil Hunting at the Beach

March 31, 2009


Reading about this family's recent fossil experiences in Canada brought back memories of a special fossil hunting trip with my family when I was a kid. So I started to do a little research about Florida fossil hunting possibilities and discovered that the beach near us was a prime spot for fossilized shark teeth. It was a beautiful day yesterday so we convinced some friends to join us on a little fossil hunting adventure. Quite a hunt but very exciting whenever one of us had success. But teeth weren't the only discoveries. As the tide went out we all learned about sea pansies, sea cucumbers, cannonball jelly fish. We used this fabulous book for identifying the different types of shark's teeth and sea life. Noah and Annie made a wonderful little habitat area for a few favorite sea creatures. Liam and Camille dug some big holes. It was another good day at the beach: exploring, learning new things, watching my kids run free, laughing with friends, and then heading home with sandy feet and full buckets.

In the early 80's I used to comb the beaches and find lots of shark's teeth; not many shells on the NE Florida area. Glad you found some!
Isn't spring wonderful in our area?

Incredibly envious.The day looks stunning - and warm. The beach looks dreamy. Possible snow expected here. My kids won't leave the computer or the Xbox (unless it's to go to the skate park), until we leave to go to Leveanworth and snowboarding. I should have been a mom more like you . . .
