Toms Teeth and Fossils
Here are some common Topsail Island finds. Teeth that
are found on the beach are tumbled, broken, worn and
sometimes perfect. They come in all shapes and sizes
and various states of wear. Here are some pics to help
you figure out what you found.
Different types of Snaggletooth shark teeth also known as Hemipristis Sierra
There are many other types of teeth to find but these are some of the more common
types. Some are tough to tell exactly what type of shark they came from. But since none
of us were there when the shark lost the tooth, who is to say who is right or wrong.
Your pile of beach teeth just becomes part of the Topsail Island tale of time well spent.
