A GEM, Lee Creek Carcharocles chubutensis, a C. megalodon predecessor, from Aurora, No. Carolina. This tooth was found in the Pungo River Formation (middle Miocene age). Note the crown exhibits large cusplike bumps at the base of the serrated edge and the root ends also show grooves where the teeth interlocked. These are characteristic traits of the Lee Creek early Meg - C. chubutensis. A gorgeous greenish tan colored crown with an incredible light tan bourlette. Fantastic serrations and tip serration - 100% complete. The root is white with small hydration cracks. Highest quality enamel! Great color! No repair or restoration. Authenticity guaranteed. A near Perfect tooth.
