Free shipping on this huge fossil Megalodon shark tooth for sale! This large tooth was found south of Venice, Florida in about 33' of water off of Manasota Key. The tooth measures 4 1/2" from tip to crown edge, which is a large size for the SW Florida coast. Condition is quite good, with both intact enamel and a complete root. Faint serrations are still detectable on the blade edges as well. This tooth will be an impressive specimen for any collection but will also make an amazing gift for anyone interested in geology and paleontology.

Geologically, the tooth dates to the Miocene epoch and is roughly 10 million years old. Because the Miocene ranges from 5 to 23 million years ago, however, pinning down the exact age is difficult. Megalodon sharks thrived during the Miocene and very early Pliocene when, luckily for us humans, they went extinct. It is believed to have fed largely on dugongs (early manatees), whales, and other large-size prey. With lengths up to 60' and a mouth 6 feet wide, Megalodon was one of the deadliest predators that nature has ever produced.
