Teeth! Megalodon or other? Squalodon species?

Recommended Posts

Found in a land spot not too far from North Charleston. Only chunks but I’m still happy with them. Wondering if this is a meg tooth or another shark, also wondering if it’s possible age based on size. Serration on the side.

Then wondering if it’s possible to narrow down the squalodon species based on the other tooth. Thanks in advance!

Squalodon is an extinct genus of whales endemic to Oligocene to Miocene.  The family Megalodon belongs to is  Carcharocles , although there are lots of different opinions on that...

 

In the Peace River, SW Florida, , I found this Megalodon tooth. Strange and irregular sized serrations. We have decided that these are regressive genes.  We do not have Angys, Rics, or Chubs

The first one looks like a Megalodon fragment to me.

 

The second one isn't a Squaladon but a fragment of a shark tooth... I don't know the right species of those locations but based in the little cusp the tooth have, something like Chubutensis...Angustidens...

First tooth is a broken meg. Second is a small broken corner of an angustidens. Not sure where you got squalodon from, but it is an early whale not a shark.

Sorry, still learning. I saw the little tooth and didn’t really think about the lack of deep roots.
