Description: PAIR OF MEGA-SHARK TEETH
Carcharocles megalodon
Miocene
Beaufort, South Carolina, USA

The teeth of the giant shark-like Megalodon are amongst the most prized specimens for the prehistoric collector. They are similar to those of today's Great White, but considerably larger; no surprise since the Megalodon was the largest carnivorous fish ever to have swum the oceans of our planet, and at over 50 feet in length, its mouth bristling with rows of this monstrous tearing and rending tools, a terrifying beast to encounter in the murky depths. This is a pair of fine examples, the larger with a coal black root and dark gray enamel; the smaller has a gray root and warm blue-gray enamel. Both retain fine serrations and enamel coverage and bear old collector's inventory numbers, 5 1/2 and 5 inches long.
