Artist Turns Shark Teeth into Symbols of Conservation

A British artist is taking a bite out of the shark myth, one tooth at a time.

Miniature sculpture Hedley Wiggan has teamed up with the London Aquarium to craft teeny tiny versions of sharks and other marine critters from 1-inch-long teeth. No need to call in the dentist though: Shark teeth naturally shed and are retrieved by the aquarium staff to start their new life as art.

The London Aquarium is using the teeth as part of an initiative to educate the public on the dangers threatening sharks in the wild. For more information, check out the original article published in a local paper.
