Lamnidae - Carcharias | Carcharocles

Megalodon Shark Tooth 6"

£6,482.00 GBP

A significantly important discovery of a 'midnight black' Beaufort County, Megalodon shark tooth measuring just under 6". Whilst demonstrating a high standard of preservation putting this specimen in the top 10% of best-preserved fossil Megalodon shark teeth in the world, the fine serrations suggest this specimen is from a younger era and estimated to be around 2,000,000 years.

Renowned for being the largest, powerful shark of vertebrate in prehistory, the Megalodon Carcharodon had a profound impact on the marine Miocene environment. Evident in the extraordinary discoveries of modern times from the Miocene to the Pliocene epoch's (the Neogene period), preying on ancient, miniature whales (Piscobalaena nana) and large seals.

Reaching a maximum length of 16 - 18 metres, approximately 52 - 59 ft, the closest living resemblance is the Great White shark, the 'Carcharodon carcharias', however, Megalodon's remains suggest its build was stockier than that of the modern-day Great white.
