5 5/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth

After going to this spot 3 straight days in a row I finally score this awesome meg. This is the biggest and probably the best meg in my collection right now that I've found. The root is really solid and almost perfect and the bourlette is about 96% complete. The serrations are really sharp and unfortnately I nicked the very tip serration with my shovel and only about 10 serrations are missing out of the hundreds. Has a small strip of peel on the display side thats hardly noticable other than that this tooth is surperb.
Location Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Species Carcharocles megalodon
Age Pliocene Epoch
Formation Hawthorne Formation
Category Shark Teeth
Length 5 5/16 inches

Date Added11/15/2003

The classic money shot of the tooth before I extracted the tooth from the layer.
