DescriptionMEGALODON SHARK TOOTH
South Carolina, USA
3.75 x 3.22 x 1.08 inches (9.53 x 8.19 x 2.76 cm)
This ancient remnant of the modern-day "Jaws" is, obviously, a fossil shark tooth - probably more easily identified by children than adults as coming from the great Megalodon ("mighty tooth") extinct species of shark. This particular specimen is in excellent condition with pristine enamel on the surface and only a minor area missing from the back. The tooth has serrations running down both edges and is an excellent specimen for its size. This intimidating gun-metal beauty is approaching 4 inches (10.16 cm) on the edge.
