The last thing a diver wants to see underwater is shark teeth. When the shark has been dead for thousands of years, however, it’s a whole different story. Michael Nastasio was diving off the coast of Venice, FL, last week, when he found a massive shark tooth — thought to have belonged to a megalodon — on the ocean floor.
Nastaio, the owner of Black Gold Fossil Charters and an aquatic fossil hunter, had been finishing an excursion with three customers when they asked him for one final dive. That’s when Nastasio discovered the tooth.
