Reef Shark Teeth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus
These are rare finds anywhere, but the yellow ditch seems to have more of this species than all of the other places I've ever hunted put together. The tooth on the left is an upper and the tooth on the right is a lower specimen.

Giant Reef Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus
First, let me say that there is no such thing as a "Giant Reef Shark". They are all just reef sharks. But this tooth is the biggest reef shark tooth I've ever seen! Had it been the only tooth I found today, I would have been happy. But I'm still glad I found others! Is that greedy?...

Carcharoides catticus - Reef Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus

I am always happy to find these little gems. They are so rare - I only find a few per year, and the yellow ditch is the only place I ever found more than one. This tooth is as perfect as they come and is so sharp! I bet it could poke right through a steak with no problem all the way to the root without breaking.

Now I want to eat some meat.

Reef Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus
My second reef shark tooth of 2007! I found one a few months ago and I was very happy. I ended up trading it for some really nice Maryland material, so I needed a replacement. Voila - Nature provides! Apparently, the universe approves of the deal....

Fossil Reef Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus
This little tooth is a killer! No damage to speak of. Just sharp. I love the way these teeth look. So fragile, yet so savage looking at the same time. And they are so rare that when I get one, I count myself lucky. This is only my fifth one ever!...

9/16" Reef Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus
This is only the 3rd complete reef shark tooth I've ever found, and its got a GREAT story, but its kind of gross so stop reading here if you're easily disturbed...
I finished my diet pepsi big slam just as I arrived at the pond, and while I dearly wanted to hunt, I REALLY had to pee. I waited until the last minute before I went, and there wasn't time to head to the woods. I had to go right where I was. Of course, I used the eroding properties of the stream to rinse away some dirt, and would...

This is an extremely rare tooth from Aurora....
9/16" Reef Shark Tooth   Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA - Carcharoides catticus
These are about the coolest looking little teeth in my opinion. In my whole life, this is the only one I have ever found that was whole. As you may have guessed, they are quite rare....
