The scientific name MEGALODON means, "Big Tooth." This tooth was found while SCUBA diving in over 40 feet deep of some of the blackest and murkiest water you can imagine! Even with powerful lights you cannot see anything including your dive gauges! These teeth are found by feeling your way around on the bottom of a mucky, brackish water river where there are sting rays, sharks and even alligators! There are also very strong currents in these rivers that have claimed the lives of many very skilled SCUBA divers. Many people do not realize that most of the Carolina and other South Eastern U.S.A. teeth are found in rivers and NOT the ocean. This is due to the fact that millions of years ago the land we now stand on was covered by the sea where these teeth were buried by sand and silt and over millions of years, literally turned to stone. When the ocean receded, the rivers were formed by the ocean's tidal currents and water flowing down hill from mountains and eventually formed the coastal rivers we know today. These rivers have carved their way into the land and into the fossil layers exposing these magnificent fossil shark teeth where brave divers find them.
There is a widely accepted theory in science of estimating the size of the Megalodon Shark by the diagonal length of its 4 upper front teeth. The diagonal length of a tooth is measured from the longest root corner to the tip of the tooth. This theory states that there would be approximately ten feet of shark for every one inch of tooth. This theory is based on what we know about Megalodon's distant cousin, the modern Great White Shark. This tooth measures OVER 3-1/2 inches long which means the shark that once owned it would have been 35 feet long! Considering this theory we can also estimate that a full grown Megalodon Shark would have weighed up to 8 times as much as a full grown Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur! Can you imagine a shark that big?! Most people do not realize that a REAL shark once existed that would have dwarfed the shark from "JAWS" and the Tyrannosaurus Rex from "Jurassic Park" combined!
These Shark Teeth Fossils make OUTSTANDING fish aquarium displays because no sharks were harmed in obtaining them! Kids love them and they are highly educational!
