Megalodon was the largest predatory fish to ever swim the oceans. Scientists estimate that Megalodon measured approximately 10 feet for every inch of shark tooth length. Fully-grown megs were absolute monsters, measuring up to 60 feet long! 

Astonishingly, Megalodon bite marks have been found in whale bones.

Age: Miocene Epoch, 23 to 5.3 million years old.

This great fossil shark tooth measures precisely 5.03 inches long at largest slant (12.7 cm) and 4.0 inches wide (10.3 cm). Weighs 290 grams (10.2 oz).
