Hunting for fossils is both rewarding and adventurous
at the same time. Whether I am diving in the ominous black waters
of Florida rivers or simply walking on land picking up sharks
teeth after a good rain, it is a thrill of a lifetime!
I have casually hunted for fossils while growing up as a kid, however
it wasn't until I moved to Florida in 2004 that I started to scuba dive
for fossils. I became a certified diver in 1976 while in Washington state
but never dreamed I would be hunting in the same black waters as alligators,
poisonous snakes and other dangers.
While the hazards are ever present, I am still driven to hunt for the
fossilized remains of creatures that are either extinct or have not roamed
in North America for ten thousand years!
