We are very excited to offer the "first" and "only" reconstructed Megalodon Jaw ever produced with "Deep Ocean Teeth".
The fossil teeth in this Jaw came from the Carcharocles Megalodon Shark and I personally located and recovered each of the teeth in very deep ocean water off the East Coast of the United States during the months of June, July & August, 2011.
The Jaw measures approximately 5-1/2 feet (168cm) tall and is 6-1/2 feet (198cm) wide. There are a total of 138 teeth in 3 rows and the total weight of the jaw is approximately 75 lbs. As you can see from the photos, this newly produced Megalodon Jaw would be a very impressive addition to any museum, aquarium or personal collection.
As many of you know, the Carcharocles Megalodon was a prehistoric shark that lived during the Miocene and Pliocene periods (2 to 20 million years ago). It was the largest and most ferocious top predator that has ever existed. The Megalodon was thought to be as long as 75 feet and weighed up to 75 tons. This is equivalent to 7 or 8 full grown Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs.
Out team of experts have been producing Megalodon Shark Jaws for the past 35 years. Even though all previous jaws were produced with "river teeth", this is the first jaw ever produced with "deep ocean teeth".
During the planning stages and the early production process, we bring together approximately 1,000 Megalodon teeth in all shapes and sizes and begin the tedious process of determining which tooth should go in which position. Through our studies and work, the correct tooth position in the dentition of the Megalodon has been refined to an exact science and it is now possible for experts to accurately describe the position of any given tooth.
As you can see, the end result is quite an impressive sight.... a jaw filled with 138 authentic fossil teeth revealing the terrifying yet infinitely intriguing "business end" of this brute.
