Are megalodon teeth pretty rare? How many tooth dives in Venice did it take you to finally snag one?

I'm heading down to Orlando in Oct, and would like to do a "tooth" dive any advice?

actually i found lots of smaller teeth, from mako's to sand tiger and sand sharks. i have a jar full of them. the bigger meg teeth everyone wants, about 5 out of 10 people on the boat finds something on that size range. it is part luck looking in the right spot and part being in the right spot. been on six dives and didn't find a big tooth and than on the last dive i dropped down right on top of it sitting in plain sight on the sand!!! my advice stick to looking around the black rock areas and if you go off a boat , go far from the boat. happy hunting
