Do you mean is it a tooth from Otodus megalodon? Do you know anything about the age of the exposure where you found it? So-called white sharks do have serrated teeth, but so do a number of others. To me the proportions of the blade look wrong for O. megalodon, but it's possible. It could be a more recent (but possibly still fossil) white shark.

Best,

W

If you can find the name or age of the formation, it will provide valuable clues. Many areas have geological maps that can provide this data.

I think you have a megalodon. My ID might be a bit premature without knowing the age and formation, but the shape and size resemble a lower tooth from a megalodon or close ancestor. How large is the tooth exactly?
