Carcharodon Megalodon
Genus: Shark
Age: Miocene Period
Location Found: USA

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!!
