Carcharochles Shark ToothDescription: These sharks are thought to be one of the oldest progenitors of what was to be Carcharodon (or Carcharocles) megalodon. Notice the sidecusps and fine authentic root (not a composite of ground up roots of lesser specimens as are sometimes offered). This one has all the serrations to the large side cusps, tooth body, and tip preserved intact, making for a fine specimen, offered here at a reasonable price for a large specimen in such a state of preservation.
