I am going to Hilton Head Island, SC next weekend and wanted to know if anyone knew any good places to look for shark teeth?

I have never been there, but I have a friend from there who says that when the tides are right, you take a boat out to the mud flats and walk them and you find pretty big shark teeth.  Unfortunately I dont have any better details for you.  But I am sure walking the beaches you will probably find something...

I have been going to Hilton Head Island and usually stay at Palmetto Dunes. You can definitely find small shark teeth 1/4 to an inch but its not like you'll find more than 10-20 in a week. The best finds down there have been the big Conch Shells, the kind you can put up to your ear. Look for the Conch shells hiding in the wading pools at low tide, you usually just see the tips sticking out but if you kick it with your foot and its solid its usully a whole shell vice a broken tip. Great Place for a family vacation have fun.

We spend several months a year on Hilton Head (Palmetto Dunes) and have done so for quite some time. You can indeed find shark teeth in the shell hash on the beach. However, you will have to work for these teeth - they are few and far between. Some very well preserved sand shark teeth can be found as well as a few other common species. Several years ago there was a similar question re shark teeth in the Hilton Head area on Black River Fossils. A fellow poster mentioned an area off-island which could also be a source of shark teeth. I don't recall for sure where this area was but believe it may have been along the waters edge of Pickney Isand. Perhaps a search of Black River Fossils may find this information still in the archives
