Extinct Giant Great White Shark Teeth Fossils - Carcharocles chubutensis

Carcharocles chubutensis was the dominant shark species during the Miocene epoch, about 15 to 26 million years ago. Also known as the Giant Great White shark, Carcharocles chubutensis was huge predator that fed on whales. Its success as a species was due to an abundance of food and specialized tools, especially its sharply serrated, gigantic teeth. C. chubutensis is in the evolutionary line of extinct sharks that gave rise to Carcharocles megalodon (recently Carcharodon megalodon). In this lineage, Carcharocles chubutensis is the predecessor of megalodon, preceeded by Carcharocles auriculatus, the Eocene giant great white shark, and Carcharocles angustidens, the Oligocene giant great white shark..

Carcharocles chubutensis fossil shark teeth are distinguishable from similar species because their side cusplets are almost merged with the main blade. The fossilized teeth of Carcharocles chubutensis can reach lengths near six inches.
