Sharks as a group have existed for hundreds of millions of years. Sharks constantly lose and replace teeth as they feed. One study suggested that a Tiger Shark may lose as many as 30,000 teeth during its lifetime. Compound that over millions of individuals and millions of years and its easy to see why there are so many tiger shark teeth at least! Now extend that analogy across all sharks that have ever lived and you'll see why fossil shark teeth are the most commonly collected fossil in the world.
Great White Shark Teeth
Tiger shark teeth are cool, but then pale in comparison with great white shark teeth
which grow to much larger sizes with some reaching over 3 inches along the slant. The Great White Shark is still living today and feeds on sea lions, seals, fish, whale carcasses, and other sharks. Scientists believe its diet hasn't changed much since it shared the oceans with Carcharodon megalodon, the most feared predator the ocean has ever seen.
Megalodon Shark TeethMegalodon Shark Teeth
are simply awe inspiring. A single tooth from the Megalodon shark can reach well over 7 inches in length along the slant. See a real 7 inch megalodon shark tooth
here. Megalodon grew to a size comparable to a jumbo jet, easily weighing over 50 tons. Some paleontologists think that this massive predator had to eat 1% of its body mass daily. What could sustain such a huge predator? The answer is whales. Yes, the Megalodon shark was so massive that its primary diet consisted of whales. The proof lies in the fossilized bones of these whales. Found all across the world, the bones show tell-tale proof of megalodon predation in gigantic gashes that fit the profile of a megalodon shark tooth
