Shark’s Tooth! A shark will lose a lot of teeth in it’s lifetime. But a fossil takes about 10,000 years to form. I’ve been inspired by all of the fossilized shark’s teeth I have found strolling along the shores of Caspersen Beach in Venice, FL. The picture below was my first try. I’ve got about 1000 teeth in a jar now. O.k. I will admit that it isn’t just strolling. I’ve now built a homemade large sifter and am trying to figure out insulated wading pants for Winter! LOL Collecting shark’s teeth is addictive! It’s something I did for many hours a day as a kid. In fact, I wanted to be an archaeologist long before I ever considered art. 😉

Awesome painting. I cannot believe you’ve got that many and have those plans for winter searching! You are slightly addicted! Ha ha… What a cool collection you have. I used to find sharks teeth as a kid in Florida, but I haven’t been able to find any as an adult, weird. I mostly travel to the Atlantic side, I wonder if that has something to do with it?
Thank you Jaime….Yes, I think they are mostly on the Gulf….Venice is the shark’s tooth capital of the World!
