!!NEW!!(June 2002) Rare teeth from the St. Mary's River, Georgia
About 30 years ago, I saw my first megalodon tooth in the hand of a paleontologist during a college class. It covered his hand, was a beautiful shiny blue-green color, and was heavy and cool to the touch like sea water. It was simply, a beautiful jewel that represented one of the world's greatest animals, and, I WANTED ONE! In those days, you had to be independently wealthy to afford these rare fossils... and this college kid wasn't rich. Thanks to the hard work of divers who risk the dangers of "gators", snakes, boat propellers, diving in zero visibility, and the work of rivers staying at flood stage for extended periods of time during hurricanes, anyone can now have one of these beautiful representations of nature's greatest predator. T. rex has fascinated us; yet, here is a creature which approached 70 ft. in length, lived by taking prey the size of the largest whales and would have used a dinosaur as an appetizer.
MountainMegalodons is my hobby:
A "HOBBY GONE WILD"
I bought my first shark tooth when I discovered it could be acquired reasonably...then a couple for my kids...then some as gifts (all were well received). Shark teeth seemed to be created in an endless variety of magnificent sizes, shapes, and colors and I wanted one of each. Now it would take a "12 step" program to get me to stop collecting. I like all these teeth and hate to part with any, but in the interest of continued marital bliss in the face of "a hobby gone wild" ... some must go.
How to use this Web site:
Please study and consider the information about the living megalodon and its world, 2-25 million years ago, on the "About Megalodon" page. This page also describes the way fossils are preserved, and some of the normal damage your teeth might exhibit.
The "History of Time" page puts all these processes into chronological framework.
You may want to turn to "Tooth Terms" page to see definitions and illustrations of the terms used to describe teeth.
The "Prices" pages provides information on the how the relative prices of Carcharocles megalodon teeth are determined.
Please explore the photos of the teeth listed in the "group" pages.
When you are ready to order; just go to the "Order" page for help.
Monster Teeth: Teeth over 6" slant height, or over 1 lb. in weight.
Group 1 Teeth: These teeth are exceptionally well preserved, relatively rare, 98%+ complete in their blades, bourlette (chevron),and roots with no major flaws. Because erosional processes have a greater effect on larger teeth, the teeth in this group tend to run smaller.
Group 2 Teeth: Complete and beautifully preserved teeth which show some small signs of wear preventing them from being considered "group 1".
Group 3 Teeth: Complete and whole teeth which exhibit signs of feeding damage when the tooth bit into whale bone during feeding frenzies (gives the tooth more character)...or shows signs of normal "weathering" and polishing as the tooth spent time moving along the river bottoms where it was probably recovered.
Group 4 Teeth: Still a complete tooth, but with additional signs of weathering, expansion cracking, polishing of serrations and enamel. This is the most commonly found type of complete tooth.
Group 5 Teeth: These teeth are missing a tip, root ears, or show some enamel peel. They are still "meg" teeth and can be the best bargains of all.
Great White Shark tooth Page: These are the fossilized teeth from Carcharodon carcharias, the "modern" great white shark. Great white teeth are available from Chile, Peru, and the United States.

"Jaws'" truly great relative!!
When you hold a megalodon tooth, or any fossil, consider the animal it came from.
"THEY QUIT MAKING MEGALODONS A LONG TIME AGO". The recent bonus availability of fossils, millions of years old, is due to increased efforts in collecting and unique weather conditions....THIS JUST CAN'T CONTINUE
"A VARIETY OF SHAPES, SIZES, AND COLORS":
I have shopped for meg teeth from webpages myself only to find that the tooth was poorly or incompletely described. As a result, I tend mention every defect and be over critical of the teeth. Please balance your choice for a tooth between the photo and the description....and remember, if you don't like it, send it back for full refund or exchange
It takes time and efforts to load teeth into a web site. If you would like me to look for a comparable tooth to the one you like, I can offer it at a discount.
