The mother of all sinkholes: Devil's Millhopper

 

The mother of all sinkholes, Devil's Millhopper has drawn tourists since the 1880's. More than 120 feet deep and 500 feet wide, this Gainesville sinkhole has formed over tens of thousands of years. Fossilized sharks teeth and other marine life have been found in its bowels, teaching scientists a lot about the natural history of this area.

Coleen,

How could someone not read this post with a title like that!  A real grabber!  The shark teeth would be what I would want to see!  So next time I'm in the area.. you can bet I am going to the "Mother of all sink holes."
