Shark tooth - Megalodon shark tooth 13.1 cm - Megaselachus megalodon

A beautiful and very large megalodon shark tooth from Cikalong, Indonesia.

The beautiful light beige coloured enamel is super smooth and shiny. The tooth was broken during the find in Indonesia.
This tooth was found by miners near Cikalong.

Dimensions: On the longest side 13.1 cm.
Super sharp serration all the way to the tip.

Except for the damage repair no further repairs! I've shown the damage as best I can in the pictures. Despite of this, surely a very nice impressive tooth.

Megaselachus megalodon is the largest predatory fish that has ever lived. Its name literally means ''mega shark with mega teeth''. The animal could grow to be more than ten metres long and had teeth the size of a human hand. Megalodon was the terror of the warm seas during Miocene and Pliocene.
