Where did they find it? I heard you can find stuff like that near Cleveland, OH (Rocky River gorge or something?). I'd be pretty excited about that find too, but then I'm a geologist.

I'm not very familiar with the geology of the northeast...haven't ever been there. I know there are some grabens in NJ (down-dropped bedrock bounded by normal faults) that contain Trissac age sediments that you can find dinosaur bones and stuff in. Found some links for you:

Lots are found in Venice Florida, the "petrified sharks tooth capital of the world." I have a two incher that I found on the beach some years ago and several quart jars full of smaller teeth. Bring it to WVA and I should be able to ID it for you.

Cheers

Mike
