My family and I vacationed in Myrtle Beach for many years before settling down and becoming official “locals” here. One of the fondest memories of coming here was the joy of hunting fossils and fossil shark teeth on the shoreline following the endless trails of shells at low tide. They seem to be nonexistent now, or quite rare to find a descent tooth of some sort. I have always kept a passion for hunting the old bones and teeth, and do so as often as I can. I primarily hunt in the low country around Charleston and Dorchester county here in SC. I’m on the hunt for the rare megalodon teeth as well as many fossil remains that lived in the Miocene era,somewhere between 4-20 million years ago. During my hunts I find masses of fossil teeth from many ancient shark species long extinct, and big or small, I collect them up and have acquired quite an amount that seems to be overtaking my table that I keep my collection on. So I thought about it as I have been taking my walks on the beach lately, and decided I might just try my hand at being the tooth fairy… or atleast, the Shark tooth fairy! It is worth a few handfuls of teeth for the chuckles I get as well as the suprise from the people I give to. Sometimes I walk past kids digging and looking for stuff and exclaim “Tooth Fairy” in a monotone loud snap as I toss the goods at them…. sometimes I’ll sneak up behind some folks and toss a few for them to find when they turn around. It’s pretty fun being the tooth fairy once in a while…. but much more fun being the tooth hunter.
