Description: Large Megalodon Shark Tooth Of Museum Quality Approximately 5.2 inch Slant Height And 4 inch Width. Estimated as Prehistoric The Megalodon, meaning "big tooth" from the Ancient Greece, is an extinct species of shark that lived approximately 2.3 million to 2.6 million years ago. It is regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predators in vertebrate history. Fossil remains suggest that this giant shark reached a lengths up to 59 feet. The most common fossils of Megalodon are its teeth with characteristics that include a triangular shape, robust structure, large size, fine serrations, and visible V-shaped neck. Teeth can measure up to 7 inches in slant height or diagonal length, and are the largest of any known shark species. The scientific community has concluded that the Megalodon was larger than the Whale shark. The quantitative methods for estimating its size is based on the calculation by Dr. Clifford Jeremiah, who proposed that total length was proportional to the root width of an upper anterior tooth. He claimed that for every 1 inch of root width, there are approximately 11.8 feet of Megalodon shark length. (Wikipedia) Size: See Ruler Photo. (Photos Represent The Condition Of The Lot.)
