A TOP QUALITY, Lee Creek Carcharocles chubutensis, a C. megalodon predecessor, from Aurora, No. Carolina. This tooth was found in the Pungo River Formation (middle Miocene age).

These are characteristic traits of the Lee Creek early Meg - C. chubutensis. A classic tan colored crown with a brown bourlette. Great serrations. The root is tan colored with a typical hydration crack. Highest quality enamel! Fantastic color! No repair or restoration. Authenticity guaranteed. A unique Lee Creek color combination!
