Finding Sharks Teeth In Florida
One of the things that we love to do is finding sharks teeth in Florida. The kids always have a ball because it gives them a goal and a purpose for our outing.
Even though we live very close to the "best family beach USA"; Caspersen Beach in Venice, FL happens to be one of our favorite places to visit.
Venice, FL is actually known as the"Shark Tooth Capital of the World". That's why when you arrive you will be seeing many individuals looking for these amazing fossils.
Caspersen Beach and the surrounding beaches are beautiful with clear, blue waters. We love going there since there is plenty to explore and usually not too many people around. That makes it easy to park and a more peaceful experience.
If you are going to be finding sharks teeth in Florida the most important item on your list should be a good fish net .
If you only have one fish net to share you might be asking for trouble. You may find yourself in the middle of a battle ground where each child is fighting to get the one fish net you brought. I speak from personal experience on this one.
Once in awhile a net will rip so having extras might be wise for that reason as well.
Do keep in mind that a net is not a necessity to finding sharks teeth since you can also find them on the shore as opposed to only in the water.
My only concern is that sometimes it's harder to find shark teeth on the shore so you may have to go into the water to search for them. That's when you will definitely need a net.
You also want to make sure that you have the best water shoes for kids. Mainly because there are sections of the beach with rocks, shells and of course; sharp, pointy shark teeth. I'm sure you don't want your kids stepping on anything that could hurt them so it's better to go prepared.
Another reason are the stingrays. Even though you can always tell the kids to do the stingray shuffle; a protective pair of shoes is a much better option.
I don't know from personal experience but I have heard that stepping on a stingray is PAINFUL! Ouch! Don't want that to happen!
Fossil Shark Teeth Identification Chart and Lots of Learning
Once you have gathered shark teeth take some time at home to pull out a fossil shark teeth identification chart and have more fun.
There are so many resources that can help you incorporate your outing with some learning adventures! This is a topic that kids are usually fascinated about. How can they not be? They are finding sharks teeth that are millions of years old!
It's always great when kids engage in learning with hands-on activities. They learn so much more that way!
