#Vlog Experts’ Favourites-Extinct Shark Tooth

Favourite objects from our collection as chosen by industry experts

This sharks tooth belongs to the Megatooth lineage, which includes the biggest shark that ever lived: Megalodon. These teeth are large in size, triangular in shape, finely serrated in their edges and also have a characteristic ‘V’ shaped neck.
These sharks were macro-predators, and therefore played a key role in Cenozoic marine systems.
