Name: Carcharodon Megalodon
Age: Miocene Period
Location Found: Java
Carcharodon Megalodon (Megalodon meaning “Big Tooth”) is a prehistoric species of shark regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predators in vertebrate history, this beast lived approximately 23 to 3.6 million years ago, during the Cenozoic Era. Fossil remains suggest that this giant shark reached a length of 18 metres (59 ft), making the Megalodon nearly 3 times as long, and 20 times and heavy as the modern day Great White shark, certainly a force to be reckoned with.
When a sharks teeth become worn the predator will shed these teeth, and these will be replaced with new sharper, stronger teeth. However, unlike humans, Sharks are known for shedding hundreds of teeth on a regular basis, which makes them a fruitful find with fossil hunters.
Fossilised shark teeth come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from only a few millimetres to some Megalodon teeth measuring well over 7 inches.ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT unique specimen you will receive. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
