Known as Carcharoces megalodon AND Carcharadon Megalodon, these giant teeth are very collectable for their formidable size and weight. Beautiful grey coloured specimen with slight tip damage. Reverse enamel in good condition but with some "battle marks". Tooth edging still retains its fine serrations but they are slightly worn. Root in reasonable condition but at some stage this Meg suffered bone damage. No restoration anywhere on this specimen.
Warning: Large Megalodon teeth are often repaired especially in the root where cracks are often found. Some are also glued together from 2 pieces.
