"The shark isn't getting its tooth back and I'm not getting my leg back"

Shark attack survivor wins right to keep tooth left in surfboard

An Australian man who was almost killed in an attack by a great white shark has won the right to keep a tooth the animal left wedged in his surfboard.

Surfer Chris Blowes lost his leg and was in a coma for 10 days after he was attacked in South Australia in 2015.

The shark's tooth was embedded in his board, but state rules ban people from possessing parts of protected species.

Now the state has granted him an exemption, and Mr Blowes says he's keeping the tooth as a "souvenir".
