The Shark Tooth Fairy Is Coming To Tybee!

This shark tooth fossil hunt will take place on our beautiful North Beach and we’ll be searching for prehistoric Mako, Bull, Sand, Great White, Snaggletooth and MEGALODON sharks’ teeth.  The “Shark Tooth Fairy” himself, Mike Harris, is donating many large Megalodon teeth and he’ll be here to help identify the sharks teeth found.

There will even be two designated zones to search so that kids ages 2-6 can be accompanied by their adults and those 7-12 can have their own area with adults watching from outside their designated zone. …
