Megalodon & Mako Shark Fossils Commercial Grade Teeth Great selection of Carcharocles Megalodon and Mako Shark teeth. The Megalodon teeth come from the biggest known shark to have ever lived. Some people argue these creatures still exist too! These teeth come from the fossil beds of North/South Carolina, 12-15 Million years old so are Miocene age. All the teeth are in commercial grade condition. The teeth all have wear and tear from feeding and nicks caused by chomping on juicy bones and later on from river flow during and after fossilization.
Some people classify Megalodon as belonging to Carcharocles, others say Carcharodon. Until this classification is cleared up, you may commonly see the two names become interchangeable for Megalodon. Commercial grade means they have wear and tear, waterworn serrations and bite marks. Collector Grade normally is reserved for the very best you can get, and quality of the tooth and species.
Full, 1/2, 3/4 and near completes available. Teeth are measured from the side of the root to the tip. Click pictures for a larger view.
Complete, Near complete and Selected 3/4 Polished specimens Many Megalodon teeth are just under 4" in size and make great display pieces on stands Water-worn Serrations are not as perfect as mint condition teeth, but this is rarely the case from teeth found in the sea or rivers where serrations are worn down quickly. All reduced in price
Complete and Near Complete USA Megalodon Teeth All are commercial grade teeth from North Carolina, USA. They have feeding marks and wear and a few worn serrations, but otherwise they are complete or very nearly complete. These are the best way for those on a budget to own a complete Megalodon tooth for a fraction of the collector quality teeth, which are priced at up to 3 times the price. Miocene aged teeth, 12-15 Million years old.
Carcarcocles sokolovi - Western Sahara Megatooth Shark
Carcarcocles sokolovi (Jaekel 1895). Middle to late Eocene (Priabonian stage - 37.2 - 33.9 Million years ago). Gerran Member, Samlat Formation Units B1 and B2, Dakhla Bay, Moroccan Western Sahara Desert. This species was a "Mega-tooth". It is related to the Otodus and the later Miocene Megalodons (C. Megalodon). Many sharks In between are thought to be transition species, some losing their side cusps and serrations, other gaining differently shaped teeth to their earlier evolution, due to genetic and environmental changes. Many are different tones in colour, and some have mineral damage from Manganese crystals, and appear as small scratches etched into the enamel. This is totally normal and it is not the result of preparation. We have commercial grades and a few collector teeth sometimes, but they often sell the quickest.
Chilean Mako Shark Tooth Isurus hastalis Comes boxed and labelled. Early Pliocene age, 3 Million years old, found in Huarra Formation, Antofagasta, Chile, South America. These are no longer collected from this site, this was collected many years back and hence are now rare.
Western Sahara Mako Shark Tooth Isurus hastalis. Comes boxed and labelled. Miocene age, 14 Million years old, found in the Western "Spanish" Sahara Desert, Dakhla Bay, Morocco.
Carcharocles angustidens Shark Teeth Oligocene species of shark that is one of the ancestors of the later Miocene age C. Megalodon. These are 33-22 Million years old. They come boxed and labelled. These species of shark are characterised with side cusps to the tooth (along with C. chubutensis, the next species in line from C. angustidens).
