Cretaceous sharks, rays, skates, and reptiles!

My MoM and I decided to scope out a shark tooth site on her birthday and although we nearly froze to death, we came back with a handful of amazing fossils on our first visit! During 2016, my MoM, my friends, and I have spent many hours working the sand and soil, cherishing every find!
