Something a little different in the Timeless Galleries: A lovely little Megalodon Tooth inserted into a silver clasp, complete with ruby!
The giant prehistoric shark, Carcharodon megalodon, was an incredibly successful apex predator that dominated the world’s oceans in the Miocene and Pliocene epochs 23–2.6 million years ago. Evolved from the earlier giant shark, Otodus obliquus — a type of ancient mackerel shark that grew larger than a great white — the Megalodon’s huge size (over 60’ in length) was probably a result of the evolution of large sea-going mammals during the Eocene.
Now available in the Timeless Galleries.
