*PATHOLOGICAL* Megalodon Shark Tooth Fossil

$682.53

Description

Up for sale is a rare, pathologically deformed Megalodon shark tooth. Most teeth are a normal, triangular shape with the usual enamel/gum ratio. With this specimen, the enamel is in a crooked position and the gum is very flat and squashed. Also, the ratio between the gum and enamel is quite unbalanced, as you can see. The bottom right corner of the enamel is creased and has a wavy edge. Pathological Megalodon teeth are very rare and hard to find. This tooth comes with a Riker display box to protect it.

This tooth is 100% genuine with no repairs or restorations and was measured with a caliper.

This Megalodon tooth is 15.9 to 2.6 million years old. Megalodon sharks swam the prehistoric seas during the middle Miocene to the late Pliocene epochs of the Cenozioc Era. This shark was the largest predatory marine creature to ever swim the Earth’s oceans, vastly outweighing both the modern Great White Shark and ancient marine reptiles such as Plesiosaurs and Pliosaurs. Megalodon could grow to more than 60 feet and weighed 100 hundred tons.
