DINO-MITE!

The Home, Strange Home crew have met homeowners who work in a variety of fields, but Sean and Lisa Tohill were the first fossil hunters we’ve encountered.

Owners of a fossil-laden quarry in the Sharktooth Hill area near Bakersfield, CA, the Tohills have a love for all things prehistoric. Their gorgeous home in Southern California is decorated inside and out with statues of extinct prehistoric beasts, and so much so that neighborhood kids have dubbed the home “The Dinosaur House.” The couple also showed us their collection of fossils. Some of the most impressive specimens were the teeth of the Megalodona prehistoric shark that possessed seven-inch long teeth and is believed to have reached lengths of sixty feet or more. Glad those things are extinct!
