If you're looking for a large, impressive, and slightly scary fossil, this Megalodon Shark Tooth from South Carolina is it! This tooth dates to approximately 5 million years old. The Megalodon is an extinct variety of shark that swam the seas some 20 million years ago. It was considered an apex predator during its time, with size estimates for this creature ranging from 50 to 60 feet long! Teeth like these are often discovered washed up on the shoreline of the eastern United States, or in river beds along coastal communities.
This piece has a beautiful contrast of dark blacks and grays. Natural serrations on the edge of the tooth remain in tact. A fabulous sheen can be seen when tilting the fossil back and forth.
Please Note: Megalodon teeth "height" are measured from the tip of the tooth, along the edge line to the base of the root (similar to a 45 degree angle). Approx. 4.25"H x 3"W x .75"D
