The river currents cut deep into the strata of earth that hold the teeth. Dredging the Savannah River accomplishes the same which explains the broken teeth. Megalodon's descendant modern era shark, the Great White, should be showing up off our coast as they follow the Right Whales southerly to the calving grounds. The local paper reported a pair 20 miles off the coast of Tybee earlier this month. This is also the time of the year that Bluefin Tuna show-up off our coast, another Great White morsel. Gil
I saw five Meg teeth, each one would near about cover my hand, that were found in the now closed sand company on the edge of the Kinchafoonee Creek in Lee County. They were pristine too. Not a chip or break in any of them.
My father said that when he was growing up in Burke County (Waynesboro), he had always heard that locals used to go to Briar Creek and sift for sharks teeth there, and he'd heard lots of stories about people finding them although he never laid eyes on any.
Have any of y'all heard of people looking for and finding them that far north away from the coast?
My wife is from Jefferson Co. When she was younger she found fossilized sand dollars and sharks teeth near kaolin property. Here's a link discussing marine fossils along the fall line: https://kaolin.com/geology/index.htm
Them some nice uns, right there. We use to got too the beach when the kids were little and we'd find em every where back in the day. Kids love it. Went back last year for a day are 2 and only found 2 small ones. beach has changed a lot where we found em years ago. I remember 1 yr we found over a 1000 teeth in 1 wk. and help other folks find em too. If we had counted all those too we found close to 1200 that wk. It is very addictive, can't walk any beach now without taken a look for em.
