North Carolina man finds megalodon shark tooth buried on beach: ‘I’ll probably never find another one’

North Carolina man finds megalodon shark tooth buried on beach: ‘I’ll probably never find another one’ A North Carolina man made a rare prehistoric find last week while taking a stroll along a beach. Harvey Wall was out with his family on the shores of Ocean Isle Beach on June 28 when he saw something sticking out of the sand. He dug it out and discovered a nearly 6-inch tooth of the extinct megalodon shark. He shared photos of the gray tooth and its striking black root on social media. “I was surprised [that it was there]. We were looking for seashells and walking our dogs,” Wall told WECT-TV. “I could only see the black part [of the tooth] in low tide. I kicked it and it flipped over, exposing the whole tooth.

"I felt it several miles away and I understand it was felt even further away. It was [a] big explosion for sure," Eden Mayor Neville Hall told WXII.

Locals have taken to the Eden Police Department Facebook group to share the impact of the explosion.

"This explains why our whole house shook," one person commented. "We live about 1 mile from this scene. Prayers for all those affected by this tragic event."

"Prayers to everyone," commented another. "I thought it was the sound of thunder. I live within a mile."

"All of Eden is awake tonight after this and some people in Virginia say they felt it too," wrote a third.

Rare sea turtles are smashing nesting records this summer on beaches in the Southeast, with scientists crediting the egg-laying boom to conservation measures that began more than 30 years ago. Giant loggerhead sea turtles weighing up to 300 pounds (136 kilograms) crawl ashore to dig nests in the sand every summer along the southern Atlantic coast. While nesting typically occurs from May through August, record nest counts set in 2016 have already fallen in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. require(["inlineoutstreamAd", "c.
