Go Shark-Tooth Hunting

Erosion can be bad news for our beaches, but it brings promise for treasure seekers. After a storm or period of big waves, head out to any local beach on a morning low tide to sift through the eroded banks for shark teeth—you might even get lucky and find a palm-sized prize from a megalodon. The most avid hunters have their secret spots, and they’re not sharing, but here’s a hint: you’ll need a boat or kayak to reach them. Make Google Earth your friend and find a flat beach with steep banks that can only be accessed by water.
