Megalodon or Great White Tooth?

Recommended Posts

BallinShark

This tooth was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It measures to about 1.5 inches. The shape of the tooth was interesting and unlike what I had seen previously, so I asked around and was told it was most likely a tooth from a Megalodon, however I remained skeptical due to its size. I would like to know what animal this tooth came from. Thank you in advance.

I believe it's a Great White.

I agree with great white because of the shape and the serrations.

But dont discount a tooth being a meg just because it is not huge. I have megs from about 3/8 inch wide up to 6 inches long

I also agree with great white, as the serrations appear to be quite irregular and large, especially at certain points. The tooth itself also doesn't seem robust enough.

I agree with GW, that's what I'm getting from overall appearance.

+1 for great white, due to its size and very triangular shape.
