Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived about 2.3 to 2.6 million years ago during the Early Miocene to the Pliocene era, and it is the oldest and biggest shark to ever exist. It is nearly unanimous among researches that the Megalodon belongs to the extinct Otodontidae family, instead of the Lamnidae family (which would make it closely related to the Great White Shark).
This long Megalodon Tooth from South Carolina is a fantastic fossil that shows a remnant of the past in great condition. This piece has about 3 cm of bone along the top that has darkened with age, and would be great for display in a collection.
