CALVERT COUNTY, Md. - Heavy rains in Maryland recently unearthed a prehistoric find in an unusual place.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says the “cool find” of shark teeth was made in Huntingtown, about six miles inland in Calvert County.

The department shared photos on its Twitter, showing large fossil teeth of prehistoric sharks. The Washington Post reported that these teeth are usually found elsewhere in the county.

The Post also said the dark color of many of the teeth is one feature that suggests that the teeth were ancient.
