Megalodon sharks tooth

Megalodon sharks tooth?

We find lots of great shells on Captiva but we don’t normally find too many SHARK’S TEETH… especially a big huge chunk (almost 3 inches long) of a fossilized MEGALODON SHARK TOOTH.

Jen, Karen and Dexter (St Louis)

Jen, Karen and Dexter (I actually think it was Dexter) found this piece of tooth that Jaws must have lost 6 to 12 million years ago. They found it on the beach at South Seas Island Resort this past weekend and called it their best find yet. Yep, I’d say so! That is pretty lucky… but it looks like luck comes easily to them because they had won this vacation on an online drawing. A free week at South Seas! Weehoo!



There was another lucky girl and a good find this weekend …..This is 8 year old Kaitlyn holding another mysterious find she found on the beach off West Gulf Drive. Her grandparents posted this on iLoveShelling FaceBook page and think it’s a CABRIT’S MUREX but I’m thinking it could be a ROSE MUREX but still not sure from the photos. Whichever shell it is.. it’s a fantastic find!! Her grandparents Sue and Mitch told me as soon as she saw it, knew it was a special shell. Good eye, Kaitlyn!

She let us know in her comments that she would coming to Sanibel to find WENTLETRAPS at the lighthouse… and looky what she found. Not just any WENTLETRAP, but a big honkin wentletrap! Look at that smile…happy girl!

Shellers at Blind Pass

Looks like there were some pretty lucky people the last few days. I didnt happen to find many shells but I did enjoy meeting such nice shellers and being outside.

Although not so happy Sanibel and Captiva are getting closer.

But really happy to see this little girl soaking in this beautiful sunset.
