mike mcmeekin holding fossil shark toothMike McMeekin is well know for his museum quality collection of prehistoric shark teeth and fossils (all recovered while diving South Carolina's snake and alligator infested rivers).  Most people associate Vito Bertucci with fossil diving and huge prehistoric shark teeth. Few know that Mike and Vito were good friends and it was actually Mike that introduced Vito to Fossil diving in the rivers of South Carolina and Florida. Listed below are an assortment of fossils, early man spear points and other artifacts assembled into an identification guide for river divers.
Note: Mike is also an avid treasure hunter. Check out his Metal Detecting Treasure Showcase.
