Large shark teeth have been found washing up on beaches across North Carolina.

According to WECT, the large teeth have been showing up in record amounts all throughout the state as a result of several coastal storms and significantly high tides. 

A fossil expert with the North Carolina Aquarium determined that the biggest teeth found are Megalodon teeth, which are reportedly millions of years old. 

Many of the teeth have since been put up for sale on the Internet, with some going for upwards of $300, reported multiple sources.
