Hunting the Teeth of Extinct Monsters

I can't think of a better thing to do on Halloween than cozying up to the teeth of long dead monsters. I'm lucky enough to call Summerville, SC my home and there are fossil shark teeth to be found all over the place. One of my favorite spots just happened to get an opportune drenching last week and I was there with my son to pick up the goodies that washed out of my favorite creek. It was a successful day for both of us - I managed to get a really nice great white tooth, my second in two trips, and the weezling got a pathologic megalodon tooth.

Its definitely not as terrifying to pick up fossil teeth as to face the creatures when they were alive, but think of the fright they put into their prey? If I were a seal, I wouldn't want to be in the water with a great white. Come to think of it, as a human I don't want to be in the water with a Great White either. Its better for them, too. I've eaten so much candy already today that I would cause them to go into a coma.

Happy Halloween everybody!

Look at all the broken great whites I got besides for the really nice one! This spot is loaded with these shark teeth.
