Huge Polished Megalodon Tooth - 6.0 inches
ON HOLD UNTIL JUNE 1, 2017
This gorgeous polished Megalodon Tooth (Carcharocles megalodon) is from South Carolina. It’s a huge tooth, measuring precisely 6 inches - the standard for highly collectible Megalodon shark teeth. It is a complete tooth with sharp serrations and a pointed tip; these features are rarely present in large teeth. Megalodon has captured the public’s imagination in recent years. It’s hard to fathom that a creature this monstrous really existed. Megalodon is known to have preyed on whales and its biting force is estimated to have been 10 times greater than a Great White shark, even surpassing Tyrannosaurus rex!
Scientists estimate that it measured roughly 10 feet long for every inch of tooth length (measured diagonally). Therefore, this colossal animal could have spanned well over 50 feet in length. It was most likely the largest predator to ever swim the oceans.
