Product Description

A really nice example of a Prehistoric Megalodon Fossil Shark Tooth from Indonesia, that dates anywhere between 2.6 (Pliocene) to 23 Million years ago.

Carcharocles megalodon was the largest shark to have ever lived. Using the fearsome White Shark (Cacharadon cacharias) as a guide in tooth size to animal length, makes the Megalodon about 18 metres in length, with a weight of 30 to 50 tonnes. The tooth has the typical triangle shape with a polished tooth surface. The edge of the tooth is finished in a line of micro-serrations, allowing for a better cutting action. Generally, the best Megalodon fossils come from Indonesia, as they are found in undisturbed strata, whereas the American examples are found in water courses. Condition is very good, with just a couple of stable stress cracks.

Size: 13.5 x 10.25 x 3 cm (5 3/8 x 4 1/16 x 1 ΒΌ inches)
Weight: 304g
