Shark Tooth Island

Located along the Rappahannock River, Shark Tooth Island (not an island unless you're referring the whole of North and South America as an island but this is the name the Brat Child gave it) is an area where people have been known to find, well, shark teeth.

These are the teeth we managed to find on our two trips to the beach.  
The larger has been identified as a tiger shark tooth. 
Midge was able to find the larger one just lying on the beach.
You can see the shell layers in the cliff
Finding the other two took some time sifting through a pile of sand.
The cliffs contain layers of prehistoric shells and teeth.
I'm looking forward to going back to see what else I can find!
