Gigantic Megalodon Teeth in Jaw Reconstruction
Offshore Cape Fear, Wilmington, North Carolina
Featuring a superlative collection of original megalodon teeth, this jaw reconstruction contains an accurate three-row-deep dentition including 24 horizontal positions in the upper jaw and 22 horizontal positions in the lower, totaling 138 tooth specimens in all. The majority of the teeth utilized in this reconstruction were found offshore Cape Fear, Wilmington, North Carolina in over 100 feet of water. Not to be confused with the coastal "South Carolina River Teeth" which have made up the majority of jaw reconstructions in the past, these tooth specimens are "Deep Ocean Teeth." As many of the tooth specimens were located in small concentrations on the sea floor, it is possible that many are "associated" specimens belonging to an individual shark.
Veteran Sea Hunt and Poseidon divers certified in Nitrox, mixed-gas deep diving operations collected these marvelous megalodon tooth specimens in a little known area thirty nautical miles off Cape Fear. Each specimen is a wonder in itself; taken together, the presentation is a marvelous phenomenon. Measures 76 x 65in
