Unearth the Ocean's Giant: Authentic Megalodon Tooth Fossil


The Megalodon, an awe-inspiring prehistoric shark, reigned as the largest marine predator in Earth's history. Towering over modern great white sharks, they would have been mere bite-size snacks for this colossal creature. From 15.9 to 2.6 million years ago, during the late Oligocene to early Pleistocene epochs, Megalodon struck terror across diverse ocean waters worldwide. With an estimated length approaching 60 feet, this extinct species has rightfully earned its reputation as the greatest vertebrate predator to have ever lived.

Measured from tip to root, at an angle, the size is:
Left Side: 137mm
Right Side: 134mm
Top: 95mm
