This ancient shark lived between 15 million and 25 million years ago. The ancient sharks could grow up to 50 feet in length. This type of Megalodon fossilized tooth is found deep in the south Pacific Ocean, 1300km/ 800 miles east of Australia, near a small island called New Caledonia.
They are excavated from the ocean floor by a boat dropping a two meter wide scoop, reaching 300m/ 1000ft down underwater. When found, the teeth are black. They are later carefully polished to remove the black color. They are a very rare item and will no longer be found due to fishing practices.
