Venice, Florida - Sharktooth Capital of the World

Florida was underwater thousands of years ago. This particular region is host to thousands of pre-historic and present day shark teeth. Because of the location of Venice and the direction of currents from the ocean, shark teeth just seem to wash up on the local beaches. Sharks often go through a lot of teeth. Over a ten year period, an average shark can shed or lose more than 20,000 teeth. There must be a lot of sharks nearby! For years, visitors and locals have been combing the Venice beaches and collecting shark teeth. If you would like a nice shark tooth necklace, this is the place to shop.
