Extinct Giant White Shark Teeth Fossils - Carcharocles angustidens
Carcharocles angustidens was the dominant shark species during the Oligocene epoch, about 28 to 45 million years ago. Also known as the Giant White shark, Carcharocles angustidens was an incredibly large predator that fed on whales. C. angustidens is in the evolutionary line of extinct sharks that gave rise to Carcharocles megalodon (recently Carcharodon megalodon). In this lineage, Carcharocles angustidens is the grandfather of megalodon, preceeded by Carcharocles auriculatus, the Eocene giant white shark. Carcharocles angustidens evolved into Carcharocles chubutensis during the miocene and then finally Carcharocles megalodon at the end of the miocene and beginning of the pliocene.
Carcharocles angustidens fossil shark teeth are easily recognizable by the presence of side cusplets and serrated blades. The fossilized teeth of C. angustidens can reach lengths over five and a half inches.
