In 1994, Jeff Weakley was surfing off the coast of Florida's Flagler Beach when he was attacked by a shark. He survived the ordeal but not without shedding some blood, as the then-unidentified shark sunk its teeth into his foot before the two parted ways.
Weakley couldn't identify the shark at the time and assumed he'd never know what species had tried to make lunch out of him. That is, until a tiny parting gift from the shark reappeared nearly 25 years later. A tooth fragment which had broken off in the surfer's foot found its way to the surface, and offered Weakley a shot at answering the question that gnawed at him for over two decades.
