A favorite pastime of recreational divers exploring the waters off Florida’s coast is hunting for teeth of the monstrous megalodon. A nightmarish prehistoric predator, the megalodon was an enormous shark species that’s been extinct for some 2.6 million years. Now in summer 2016 one particular diver was hunting for the elusive teeth of this beast from a bygone era. And yet he found something that was in fact much rarer.
