Picking up seashells by the seashore is perhaps one of the best pass times in Florida, but rarely do you find shark teeth - let alone megalodon teeth. However, there is one spot in Florida considered "shark tooth capital of the world" and finding megalodon teeth isn't all that uncommon.\nAccording to the information posted on Visit Sarasota, if you take a walk along Venice Beach, Florida, you will likely come across at least a couple fossilized shark teeth, and once in a while even a megalodon tooth. All you need is a sifter and a little patience.\nThe website notes that some people simply stroll along the beach scanning the sand for "shiny black teeth," while others, who are seeking faster results, will wade out into the ocean where the waves break and there is a drop-off ledge to scoop up a handful of sand there.\nView this post on Instagram Day 7: à la recherche des fossiles de dents de requins sur les plages de Venice 🦈 #florida#travel#roadtrip#onedayonebeach#sharkties#dentsderequins#trouvaillesdujour A post shared by Gaelle Labeyrie (@milaasol) on Apr 22, 2019 at 5:35am PDT\nThis area is one of the best spots for shark teeth hunting because it was teeming with sharks ten million years ago when Florida was submerged under water and megalodons ruled the sea. Over time the ocean receded, exposing the land and the fossilized shark teeth below.\nView this post on Instagram Some Venice Florida colors to start off your Friday morning. .
