DescriptionSUPERB MEGALODON TOOTH
Carcharocles (Carcharodon) megalodon
Morgan River, South Carolina, USA
Of these highly desirable giant Shark teeth, the present example is a superlative specimen. It once graced the enormous, deadly mouth of the Megalodon, the ancient mega-shark that could grow to the size of a Greyhound bus, and which still excites popular imagination. This massive tooth is a classic example of the very finest qualities found in these specimens: it retains wonderful, glossy enamel coverage, in a warm dark gray, and is lined with tiny serrations that retain exceptional definition. Together with a robust root section of excellent, curving shape, it measures an impressive 6⅜ inches along the slant, a first-class example of these highly sought-after specimens.
