Here is a superb example of a posterior megalodon tooth. Posterior teeth were near the back of the megalodon's mouth and are characterised by their wide roots, relatively short blade and large serrations. They are not as common as other teeth due to their fragility and are smaller.
This specimen in great shape; The bourlette is perfect, the enamel is very smooth and free from any damage, and the root in nearly fully intact. The serrations have been completely worn, which is typical for this region. Posterior teeth from North Carolina are hard to find, especially one this size. This tooth would be an excellent addition to an intermediate to advanced fossil collection. There are a few minor nicks; please view the photos carefully.

159.57 grams 5.629 oz. Early Miocene to Late Pliocene. Carcharocles megalodon is an extinct species of megatoothed shark that lived during the early Miocene to late Pliocene epochs of the Neogene period (23 to 2.6 mya). It was one of the largest marine predators to have existed, vastly outweighing the modern Great White Shark and other marine reptiles such as Plesiosaurs and Mosasaurs.
Megalodon could grow up to 60 feet (18 meters) and over, weighing approximately one hundred tons. Its diet consisted mainly of prehistoric whales, dolphins and giant sea turtles; fossilized bones of marine mammals have been found with bite marks matching the teeth of megalodon.
