I've heard that shark's teeth can be found on the beach. Does this mean the entire Myrtle Beach area or are they more prevalent in some areas than others? How about times to looks for shark teeth; very early morning before the crowds hit, low tide, etc? I bought some at Ripley's Aquarium last year but think it would be really neat to find some "wild" shark teeth. Thanks for reads and replies.

I hope you don't mind, but I edited your subject to add shark teeth. We've got some shark teeth hunters here who may be interested.

They can be found on any of the Myrtle Beach beaches. All you need is good eyesight, lots of patience, and a strong back. It's amazing how many small shiny black shell pieces we've picked up over the years, only to find on closer examination that they weren't shark teeth after all. No need to look at any special time of day, but you should look where the tide has washed in what appears to be a long row of broken shell pieces, seaweed, etc. Just pick up a handful of shells and sift through them. Or you might be lucky and spot one without sifting at all.

As everyone here has said when this subject comes up, once you know what you're looking for they are easy to find. Since you've already purchased some teeth, you are one step ahead in that you already know what they look like!

Good luck, and let us hear about the hunt!

Sharks teeth have a certain patina, so once you've found one it's easier to find more. There are a lot of shell pieces that look like teeth, but if you can break it with your fingers, it's not a sharks tooth.
