Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub :dinothumb:

 

Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!

Yup. I'd think twice about being a diver if megs still swam our waters. ;)

 

I've had fun diving for meg teeth in the waters of North Carolina but I don't think I'd want to retrieve them firsthand from their owners. :o

 

BTW: Belated welcome to the forum. :)

 

 

Cheers.

Thanks.  I'm a chicken.  There would be no diving.  Still Tigers and Great Whites in the waters.

I think the technical term for your tooth is "Mr. Chunky."

Nice tooth.  I have 1 coming that will be in similar company with it on the widened scale.  We shall see when it gets here.

Wow!  That's impressive!  I have a couple that's not quite as imposing, but still pretty cool.  The one on the right comes in at 6.23" x 4.93", while the one on the left is 6.18" x 5.16"

Here's my widest. It is 5 inches wide from Lee Creek. The other side looks a little nicer.

My larger megs are all anteriors, so not too wide, but I have yet to see a great white wider than this one.

What an incredible resource in your album "unusual shark teeth"  Very helpful with some IDs that I need help with!
