(ORDO NEWS) — A diver from the city of Venice in Florida found a megalodon tooth with traces of other teeth.
In the US, a Florida diver found an unusual megalodon tooth while diving. It is reported by Newsweek.
An employee of Aquanutz Scuba Diving Charters, a company engaged in the search for shark teeth, discovered a strangely damaged tooth of a giant prehistoric shark off the coast of the city of Venice.
“There was a part of the root sticking out, and I pulled on it. At first I thought the tooth was broken. It was only in the boat that I realized that it had marks of other teeth,” said diver Blair Morrow.
Later, he suggested that the tooth was bitten by the megalodon itself when it fell out and got stuck in its mouth.
Megalodon is the largest shark in the history of the Earth, extinct about 3.6 million years ago. Its length could reach 20 meters, and weight – 41-47 tons.
The remains of an ancient predator were found in North and South America, Europe, Africa, as well as Puerto Rico, Cuba, Jamaica, the Canary Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Malta, the Grenadines and India.
Despite numerous finds of megalodon bones and teeth, the whole skeleton of this fish has not yet been found.
