Megalodon Shark Tooth
What is a Megalodon ?
The megalodon shark meaning "big tooth shark" was a giant shark that lived in the late Miocene/ Pliocene era between 18 million to 3 million years ago and was the apex predator of its time. Megalodon became extinct in the Pliocene epoch about 3 million years ago. It is the largest carnivore fish/shark known to have existed . Scientist believe Megalodon could grow to more than 60 feet long. Megalodon would feed on anything and every thing including Giant Squids and Whales with its deadly arsenal of 184 razor sharp teeth . There have been teeth found that exceed 7" long ! The formula for figuring length of the shark is done by the primary tooth measurements . Standard Measurements are taken from the tip to the longest root side. For every eighth of an inch equals 1 foot in length. There fore a 7" tooth would be 56' long. The megalodon fed on whales squid, large fish and anything that moved. The power of its jaws was incredible. They could slash through vertebrae and rib bones with ease. They could even slice through their own teeth teeth! When I dive I can find as many whale inner ear bones as sharks teeth lying on the bottom. This is amazing because a whale only has 2 inner ear bones! The whales were getting slain constantly to feed these huge beasts !!
HOW ARE THEY FOUND ?
These teeth are found diving in rivers and off the coast of South Carolina. In the Rivers the divers have to dive in extremely high currents with little to no visibility just groping around. Some of the other dangers are stingrays , sharks, gators and boat traffic to name a few. The reason you can find teeth in these rivers is the coast line has moved in and out over millions of years. The conditions divers endure off the coast are long rides in brutally Rough water , Bad Weather , predators, climbing back on the boat in rough waters to name a few !
Several divers have lost their lives diving for megalodon teeth including the Megalodon Man Vito Bertucci. There will be more to come . I have personally had many encounters over 20 years coming extremely close to death diving for megalodon teeth including Getting stung in the face by a sting ray, being trapped under trees entangled in lines , held down by to much weight washing out to sea,chased by sharks etc etc.... For those who are looking for excitement of meg hunting be careful !!!
