Dragon's Teeth

These small pyramids look harmless, but they were literally a death trap. Called "Dragon's Teeth", they were built to slow down military tanks during WWII, and guide them into waiting anti-tank weapons. Dragon's Teeth were used extensively by both sides during the war, particularly by the Germans. These teeth are in The Netherlands, but thousands of these blocks of concrete can still be seen along German defensive lines today.
