B.C. mom, stepdaughter searching for rocks find a megalodon tooth instead
A woman and her stepdaughter exploring along the Nechako River near Prince George last week found something far more unique than colourful rocks.
Rachel Shill Cook and her 13-year-old stepdaughter, Addison Shill, were looking for agates when they pulled something different from the mud.
“Usually when it’s a nice day, we want to get out for a little bit and she’s really big into finding agates, so we decided to just take the opportunity to do it,” said Shill Cook.
The river was very low that day, allowing them to explore areas they wouldn’t normally see, she said.
Shill Cook said she saw something she thought was an agate but when she scooped it out of the mud, it looked like a fossilized tooth.
