CAPE LOOKOUT, N.C. (WTVD) -- One mother and son duo have quite a story to share after a rare find at a beach on the North Carolina coast.
According to a Facebook post from Cape Lookout National Seashore, the two found a massive megalodon shark tooth while beachcombing.
The duo made the rare find on Sunday, July 23.
Park rangers said the beach at Cape Lookout isn't known as a place to find shark teeth, however, every once in a while, somebody might find one.
While finding a megalodon tooth at Cape Lookout may be rare, ABC11 talked to some divers who said Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington is a hot spot for them.
The Natural History Museum says the megalodon was not only the biggest shark in the world, but one of the largest fish ever to exist. Their sizes are actually based on tooth size because there are no skeletons of the shark, which went extinct nearly four million years ago, the museum says on its website.
