c. 16 - 3 million years B.C. A good example of a tooth from a "juvenile" Megalodon [the largest shark that ever lived and one of the largest predators ever!]. Megalodon was a truly massive shark growing up to 65 foot long and weighing in excess of 60 tons. Megalodon would dwarf even the largest of today's Great White Sharks and possessed many hundreds of teeth, measuring up to 7 inches long in a fully grown adult. Megalodon was known to have feasted mainly on Whales and other large sea mammals. This tooth was originally found in North America but hails from an old early 20th Century U.K. fossil collection. This particular tooth measures some 105mm along its sides with  crown height of c.80mm which calculates out to approximately 30 feet long and 25-30 tons in weight. [N.B. The last image purely shows comparison between the jaws of an adult Meglaodon and a full sized model of an adult Great White Shark, the largest alive today]. A few minor knocks to the tooth as is to be expected from its time buried in the earth but otherwise intact and in very good overall condition. A good example of a tooth from this prehistoric terror of the deep!
