Sharks Teeth in Capetown

Recommended Posts


Looking for the best spot to find sharks teeth in Capetown area. I am travelling there in June and would love to go looking on the beach. I am from Florida and we find them just walking on the beach. Can you do that there?

Plenty of teeth to be found on the beaches there, but :


""The legislation protecting fossils is embodied in the National Heritage Resources Act (Act No.25 of 1999) which came into effect on 1 April 2000. The Act states that no person may destroy, damage, alter, deface, disturb, excavate, remove from its original position, collect or own, trade in or sell, export or attempt to export from South Africa, any fossil without a permit from the South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA). A person found guilty of breaking the law is liable for a fine and several years imprisonment, or both. Customs officials are aware of the law and have confiscated fossils when attempts have been made to export them without permission in the past." 1
