Boy’s 20 Million Year Old Discovery

W e’d seen fragments of shark teeth on the beach, but nothing as big and heavy as this. A six-year-old boy has found a tooth belonging to a massive prehistoric shark which could be up to 20 million years old. Sammy discovered the 10cm-long (4in) tooth on a beach with his dad Peter while on holiday in Suffolk, England.Dwarfing other sea creatures, scientists estimate the Megalodon shark could grow up to a staggering 18m (60ft) in length, and weigh up to 60 tonnes.

Evolutionary biologist Professor Ben Garrod, who confirmed the lucky find, said the Megalodon was an “ambush hunter” and that Sammy’s find was “a really big thing”. Sammy described the “massive” tooth as his best-ever find, and said he spotted it lying on the sand and pebbles. Now that is one major discovery!

Woman of Light By Kali Fajardo-Anstine

Fajardo-Anstine took the literary world by storm with her first book, the National Book Award finalist, Sabrina & Corina. Now she returns with this multigenerational saga about the Lopez family, an Indigenous Chicano family in the American West.Told in a non-linear fashion, it covers five generations of a Chicano family from the Lost Territories from the late 1800s to the 1930s. Women in several generations have the gift of sight. The story focuses primarily on Luz, who lives in Denver with her aunt and initially, her brother. There are elements of magic realism within the plot – Luz’s reading of the tea leaves, Diageo’s kinship with his rattlesnakes. But there are also dark elements to the story – the Klan operating in Denver, but also the everyday racism of the time. It fulfilled my desire to learn something of the time and place.
