Description

    Megalodon Shark Tooth
    Carcharocles megalodon
    Miocene
    Morgan River, South Carolina, USA

    There are Megalodon teeth, and then...there are Megalodon teeth. This incredible specimen is a full 6.1 inches (15.6 cm). Fossil shark teeth over 6 inches (15.5 cm) are few and far between. This "bad boy" is in magnificent condition. It has a complete root, and virtually all of the enamel has been preserved. This is a very big and very high quality tooth. Although Megalodons are often compared to the Great White sharks of today, Megalodons were considerably larger than their contemporary descendants - a fact not hard to imagine since the tooth here is definitely much larger than any modern-day Great White tooth that has ever been collected! This tooth passes all the tests: "V"-shaped neck, large size, robust structure, triangular shape and fine serrations. This is a consummate Megalodon shark tooth. This exceptional specimen comes with a custom wood and brass base for a maximal impact.
    Overall Measurements: 6.1 x 4.4 x 1.3 inches (15.4 x 11.3 x 3.4 cm)
