Details

This massive tooth comes from one of the most feared marine predators to have ever existed on Earth, the Megalodon! Thought to have been serpent tongues when first discovered in the middle ages, these shark teeth have been objects of awe and wonder for centuries.

The tooth was discovered on a diving expedition, having been eroded out of the Hawthorne Formation and deposited in river sediments.
