Hundreds of people were on hand to hunt for shark teeth last Saturday morning at The Sands in Port Royal. Young and old alike came early as the Shark Tooth Fairy, also known as Mike Harris, tossed out handfuls of Megalodon and other shark teeth as well as assorted fossilized bones to be found — and all for free.

A huge crowd showed up to search for shark teeth.
