Fossilized Megalodon shark teeth are the only remains we have of these extinct giants of the seas. So even though lots has been studied and written about megalodon (big tooth), the best information we have is educated guesses. Recent research has changed some of the thinking about this shark. Now thought to be in the Otodus clade of sharkdom rather than Carcharocles as previously believed.

The Megalodon Timeline and Fact File

The Otodus genus of Sharks are part of the Otondonidae family, and includes the also impressive Otodus obliquus. While little is known for sure about these giant denizens of the deep, we do know that they hunted large animals like whales. Providing nourishment for 48 tons of raw powered muscle is no slight task. Whale bones have been found with meg teeth embedded in them.

Megalodon Teeth

Like all sharks the loss of a tooth or two was not a big deal. They grew new teeth to replace any that might be lost while snacking.All sharks have cartilage instead of true bones. This is what your ears and nose are made from. Cartilage does not fossilize well. Because of that the only remains of their existence are fossilized teeth. But what teeth they are! These giant shark teeth range in size from 3 inches long to 7 inches long. Authentic megalodon teeth are massive things that can be bigger than a man’s hand.

To put this in perspective compare meg teeth to a great white the closest living relative. A large great white shark measures about 20 feet long and weighs a little over 2 tons. Their teeth measure about 1.5 inches long. Estimates of the size of megalodon vary widely but conservative estimates say at least 40 feet. Looking for more info on megalodons?
