Megalodon Shark Tooth - 4.48 inches

This piece is unavailable

  • This beautifully preserved fossil shark tooth (Carcharocles megalodon) is an outstanding specimen because of its completeness (including bourrelet), nice serrations, gorgeously coloured enamel, pointed tip and aesthetic shape. This particular gem also has no restoration.
  • Beaufort County, South Carolina, USA
  • Hawthorn Formation: 3 - 7 million years old 
  • 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. 
  • Measures precisely 4.48 inches along longest slant; 4.39 inches along second slant; 3.41 inches wide; and it weighs 176 grams.
  • Please select option (1) without the stand, or (2) with the stand ($35 extra)
