Large megalodon tooth pendant. Measures 2 1/2 inches. Features a metal shark highlight near the cap. This tooth was found in the Gulf of Mexico near Venice Beach Florida.
The Megalodon had 46 front row teeth, 24 in the upper jaw and 22 in the lower jaw.
Most sharks had at least six rows of teeth, so a Megalodon would have had about 276 teeth in it’s mouth at any given time.
Megalodon could grow up to 60 feet (18 meters) long and had a bite more powerful than that of a Tyrannosaurus rex.
The sea monsters terrorized the oceans from about 16 million to 2 million years ago.
