Carcharocles megalodon tooth
Carcharocles megalodon, or just plain meg to its friends, was a real monster of the deep. They could grow up to 60 feet long and had a mouth that could swallow you whole. Their teeth are found in a few localities around the world; these are from the rivers of South Carolina, where they are dug from the soft Miocene sediments by divers.
There are many collectors of these teeth and a number of factors will affect the value. Obviously, size is the main consideration, but colour, serration and enamel condition are also influential.
