3 7/16 inch Lee Creek Pungo Megalodon Tooth   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon

This Pungo megalodon tooth was definitely my trip maker. I'm glad I brought my camera because the ground shot is great. The preservation on this tooth is unreal! I've been internally conflicted about what to call this, Chubutensis or Megalodon.

Around mid-morning, I stumbled on this little gem lying in a shadow at the bottom of a hill of Pungo. I found my first NC megalodon a few years ago, but it was small and beaten to a pulp. Since then, I've so wanted to find a killer (just like everybody else!) to take its place in my collection. This is the one! Its not huge, but its absolutely stunning....

13/16" Pathologic Megalodon Shark Tooth   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Carcharocles megalodon
My first Lee Creek megalodon tooth! It’s a small one, but its 100% flawless. Sharp tip, every serration intact, and a perfect root. Look at the left root lobe - it never grew - what a cool looking little tooth!...
