I think we HAVE been here before…I’m still in shark tooth hunting mode and there’s no water or teeth to be found here, but I decided to take a walk down memory lane. (And this is one way for you to see the tooth that I found in the water in Venice Ken…Thanks for delivering the books for me!)
This is the “baby tooth” of a Megalodon shark. Odds are that it’s at least 1.5 million years old…that’s when they believe the Megalodon became extinct…although conspiracy theory buffs maintain that the shark still lives today. My son is holding the tooth so that I could take a picture of it with a “normal” sized tooth next to it for comparison.
I’m glad I didn’t see any Megalodons in Florida..they were supposed to have been as big as 60 feet long and had the most powerful bite of any creature that ever lived. If they existed now and one could have chased me down and caught me, I’d be so small as far as their food goes, that I wouldn’t even be an appetizer.
