Shark Tooth Fairy helping with first ever Tybee Shark Tooth Fossil Hunt

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

There’s treasure on Tybee and its hunting season this Sunday.

You may remember the Shark Tooth Fairy. He dives in the waters in and around Beaufort County, until recently when the state of South Carolina wouldn’t renew his fossil diving license.

That has severely slowed him down, but he’s not out for the count. He’s still educating children with his megalodon teeth and he’s helping in the first ever Tybee Shark Tooth Fossil Hunt this weekend.

"When you tell a kid how old these things are, some of these shark teeth are 32 million years and older, it gives them a whole new concept of the wonderful new world we live in,” said the Shark Tooth Fairy, Mike Harris.

Save The Shark Tooth Fairy has more than 1,000 supporters on change.org but Harris knows the flooding in South Carolina has taken center stage and he's not pressing the state just yet.

If you'd like to hunt for fossils on Tybee this weekend you must pre-register here.
