It would be a cool find. But as far as I can tell, just claims made by eyewitness and no hard proof.
Star for putting the vids up.

I'm not big on Steve Quayle.
But I'll watch from time to time if a major find is put up on YT by more than several credible sources.

Sea world and killer whales come to mind. Though a mammal, they are still wild animals. And will turn if necessary. Some just plain turn on you without reason.

Holy Cow! You put up more... and if that platter size tooth is real. When I get a chance to read and watch what you put up, should be neat. I rally want to know the date of that shark tooth. Hope someday they find a way to get DNA from those teeth.

No real Megalodon teeth even close to this size have been found. But what if?

I'll take Steve's word or the word of any other random eyewitness for that matter long before I believe another word coming from mainstream Science 'fiction' sources...

Fool me twice, shame on me...

Melville's novel as it states. Thanks.

I actually found that image in another ATS thread but after doing an image search just now I think I found the original source...

it appears to be a fake sculpture of some kind that sells for about $175...

I just removed it from the post on page 1 for that reason.


No real Megalodon teeth even close to this size have been found. But what if? This is a greatly enlarged sculpture of a Megalodon tooth. Hang this tooth on your wall or place it in your collection of MEG teeth and watch how much attention it gets. A sure fire way to start a conversation.

I'm now wondering if the image below is one of those as well...

I'm jumping from tab to tab trying to get real info for my thread. That was a big help.

Fact checking is a good thing.
You're welcome.

It's all good. I must admit it looks good.
So far the teeth being found are from 5 to 7 inches. And not to dissimilar from great whites.

simple.m.wikipedia.org...

The below is of the measurements between a Megaladon compared to the Great White.
But as usual wiki never loads right. Scroll down on the wiki page I provided above. Big size difference.

Still a monster.

Yeah, I hate to perpetuate fraud, there's enough of that going around already.

That's why I removed the Japanese Megaladon video also, several posters in another thread said it was fake.

Not sure if it is or not but I like to stick with things I believe personally.

Actually no...

I didn't even see your post with the link to the sculpture until after I found it myself with an image search.

So whats your take on the other tooth held by the girl in the blue tee shirt'?

It appears to be a little on the big side to me...

Here's a 16 foot Great White attacking a fishing boat motor. The video does not do it's justice unless you take a measuring tape, and span it across your living room. Now get it to 60ft.

NOTE: this device I'm using is at 15%. And very bad micro USB charger with an attitude. I'm going to have apologize and get to the laptop... gimme a bit thank you everyone.
Thanks mods too.

I think these are similar but different incidences, this must happen all the time...

Reminds me of the time I went to the beach in Guantanamo Bay once to go snorkeling...

There was a pack of sharks in the water that were attracted by a fisherman's bait at the beach.

Apparently the blood is like a shark magnet.


An Australian fisherman managed to capture stunning footage of a great white shark as it rammed the side of his vessel on Friday, a day ahead of a fatal attack that transpired in Tasmania.

The encounter took place west of Carnac Island, according to the Australian, when angler Mark Peacock was fishing alone in shallow water. His boat was approached by a great white shark, which circled the vessel for several minutes, prompting him to film the animal.

After a moment, however, the shark approached his boat’s motor, causing him to realize the situation had changed. “When it grabbed the motor it shook the boat around, and made me realize just how strong this creature was,” he noted.

I wonder how long they had to live to get that big?

Have they ever found any skeletons of this critter, just the teeth survive.

What a predator. The ocean must have been an awesome place back then. If sharks were that big, what size were other fish?

I'd love to sit on the beach and watch the action in and on the water, back then.

Teeth are the only "boney" parts of sharks. Their skeletons are composed of cartilage, which is not suitable for fossilization.

Where I lived very near north pier, the army corp of engineers dredged up 100s of tons of hard sediment to line the shore with to help control the tidal sand erosion, especially during hurricanes. They were embedded with millions of sharks teeth and fish bone that had settled on the ocean floor.
