Megatooth shark tooth

Prehistoric South Carolina – Coastal Discovery Museum

The Coastal Discovery Museum will host this program on November 18 at 2 pm.  From tiny Trilobites to Giant Ground Sloths, the fossil history of the Palmetto State is a fascinating story.  Where else can you find a 65- million- year-old oyster and minutes later stumble upon the massive 6-inch tooth of a Megatooth Shark?  Visions of Volkswagen-sized armadillos, huge Mastodons, and pouncing Saber-toothed cats boggle the mind. Join professional naturalist and amateur paleontologist Bruce Lamplight for a Lowcountry step back in time as he tells of the rich pre-history of our state.
Lamplight currently serves as the Naturalist for Brays Island Plantation in Beaufort County.  HE also is a Master Gardener and Master Pond Manager and has been involved in environmental education for over 35 years and was the 2004 recipient of the South Carolina Marine Educator of the Year Award.
Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.  The museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
