Hawthorn Formation, South Carolina
Pliocene to Miocene Epoch 4-7Ma

Tooth : 2.95 inches
(1 inch = 2.54 cm)


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.

Presented here is a natural, non restored, 2.95" C. megalodon tooth from Beaufort County, South Carolina. Exhibiting a cool bi-color face, the back is a richer tan color than the front, which is more grey. It was discovered on a diving expedition, having been eroded out of the Hawthorne Formation and deposited in river sediments.

Carcharocles megalodon (Agassiz, 1843)

Megalodon means "big tooth", from the Ancient Greek: μέγας (megas) “big, mighty” + ὀδόν (odon) “tooth”. C. megalodon is regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predators in history, fossil remains suggest that this giant shark reached a maximum length of 60 ft.
