"Shark tooth capital of the
CASEY KEY --
is hunted for teeth regularly, and the teeth
do just lay there. That's why everybody walks the beach with there
heads down. A keen eye and some sunscreen on your neck is all you
need. Any wave could uncover a trophy......you just need to be there first.
The mighty Megalodon, the largest carnivorous shark to
ever prowl the seas, was over 60 feet in length. Precursor to the modern
Great White shark lived in the Miocene epoch 5 to 24 million years ago. Some
of the larger teeth fetch prices to $5000 and more!
