Hey guys? If you’re kinda scared of sharks, maybe don’t read this story? Like, just click away? Here’s one about Harry Potter, if you want?
DUUUUH DUH. DUUUUH DUH. DUUUUH DUH DUUUH DUH DUUUH DUH DUUUH DUH.
That, dear friends, is a Megalodon, an ancient ancestor of the modern day great white shark which roamed the waters somewhere between 15 million and 5 million years ago, and is the size of A SMALL BUS.
“Oh my god, like I said, I felt like I was a lottery winner of something,” Denny Blend, who found one of the massive fossilised teeth on a beach in North Carolina, told a local news station. “It’s like I’m the first one to touch that since it fell out of its mouth back in the day.”
Apparently the North Carolina coast is something of a ‘hotspot’ for ancient fossilised sharks, but high tides, recent rains, and extreme weather means teeth have been washing up in record numbers.
