I decided to spend my New years day visiting one of Florida's beaches which I have not been to in some time. A huge benefit we have by living in Florida is that there is never a "lack of" plenty of beaches to visit for a bit of variety.
Thursday morning I woke up bright and early and headed out to Casperson beach in Sarasota County. Casperson Beach is also considered one of the beaches of Venice, Florida. An interesting aspect of the beaches in Sarasota (Venice Florida) is the abundance of sharks teeth which you can find on the beaches.
Casperson beach is considered by many people to be a particularly good beach for finding the teeth and if you hit it at the right time, usually is not crowded.
Some of the better areas to find the teeth is around the rocks and at the low tide surf line. The sharks teeth we find are between 5 million and 10 million years old .... YES, you read that correctly. Back during this time period, this area of Florida and the gulf was a shark breeding area and attracked thousands of sharks. As the sharks died, the only part that survived the ages were the teeth.
If you like to SCUBA dive, it is possible to locate teeth about the size of a grown adults hand, but the teeth we find on the beaches are pretty small... around an inch in size or smaller.
