Huge Serrated Megalodon Tooth - 6.16 inches
- This monstrous fossil shark tooth (Carcharocles megalodon) is a true collector piece. Comparable teeth are almost impossible to find. It's highly desirable because of its incredible size (over 6 inches), completeness (including bourrelet) and gorgeous colour. The enamel coverage is excellent an it has razor sharp serrations and pointed tip. This particular gem is totally unrestored.
- Beaufort County, South Carolina, USA
- Hawthorn Formation: 3 - 7 million years old
- A must-have tooth for the serious collector!
- Megalodon was the largest predatory fish to ever swim the oceans. Astonishingly, Megalodon bite marks have been found in whale bones. Scientists estimate that Megalodon measured 10 feet for every inch of shark tooth length. This monster probably measured well over 50 feet long!
- Measures precisely 6.16 inches (15.64 cm) at longest edge and 4.36 inches (11.07 cm) wide. Weighs 396 grams (13.96 ounces).
