Caribbean Megalodons

Caribbean Megalodons

The Carribean Megalodon teeth are sourced in commercial limestone quarries. These teeth are wonderfully colored and preserved. A creamy white is the unique color for this location, and it will be mixed with light charcoal, rust orange, peach, and light lavendar patterns. Teeth are very preserved and the serrations are incredible. Unfortunately, 99%+ of the teeth are found when a saw blade strikes the tooth during the mining operation. A change sound alerts the operators that the saw blade struck an object. The teeth are then extracted from the limestone matrix. So, all of these teeth require some professional restoration.

Carcharocles megalodon or Megalodon was the largest and most powerful shark that ever lived. It ruled the seas from the early Miocene to the end of the Pliocene some 20 to 3 million years ago. It is believed that the Megalodon shark reached lengths of 60 feet and it possessed large, heavy triangular teeth which are fully serrated. These large teeth plus the highest estimated bite force of any animal (up to 180,000 newtons) allowed the Megalodon to bite through massive prey. The diet of an adult Megalodon consisted of whales and other large marine mammals.

Megalodon teeth can exceed 7" in length; however, very few teeth of that size have been found. Today, only the teeth and a possibly a few vertebrae remain from the massive predator. Megalodon teeth come is a variety of size, color and condition. Top quality teeth are comparatively rare and can be quite expensive. Also due to the higher value of complete and undamaged teeth, damaged Megalodon teeth will be repaired and restored. These teeth will be far less valuable, and their repaired condition should be made known to any buyer. We rarely will offer a repaired tooth, and if we do it will be clearly marked.
