One cool thing about living on the GulfCoast, or any coast for that matter, is what you find when doing other things. Lately, we’ve been inundated with a several dead things washing up.
Of course we then play with them.
Our favorite so far has been a shark tooth my son found. All evidence points to it being a Great White. The tooth is about 5-10 times the size of the state record hammerhead.
Though not native to the Gulf, its not unheard of to find them here. This winter we also found an alligator and a porpoise.
If you find yourself wanting to play with dead things washed up on the beach, don’t let your son fall in the entrails after the necropsy. And don’t take a picture as he falls…
