How many of these do you see on eBay among the hundreds of Megalodon teeth for sale??? Fewer than 1% of all of the teeth on eBay are from this location!
THIS SPECIMEN IS FROM ONE OF THE RAREST LOCATIONS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!!!!!
It was found 800 miles east of Australia and a 3 day boat ride north of a small island called New Caledonia. These uniquely colored 3 to 10 million year old fossils are dredged up from over 1000 feet of water using a scoop only 2 meters wide. At this depth it is MUCH too deep to SCUBA dive and there is only time for 5 passes in a day. Teeth from this unusual location are relatively rare because only a few teeth are caught in each pass.
There is a widely accepted theory in science of estimating the size of the Megalodon Shark by the diagonal length of its four 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 is approximately ten feet of shark for every one inch of tooth. This theory is based upon what we know about Megalodon's distant cousin, the modern Great White Shark. This tooth measures 3-5/16 inches long which means the shark that once owned this tooth would have been 30+ 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! 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!
This tooth is a 100% guaranteed authentic fossil. This tooth has been polished with lapidary equipment to give it a slick, glossy marble-like finish. Other than polishing there have been no alterations or repairs of any kind. The color is 100% natural, 100% GUARANTEED!
