Monster Shark Tooth Found
A massive 7 1/4 inch serrated shark tooth was found in a coastal river bed in South Carolina by fossil hunter Vito Bertucci. The fossilized tooth belongs to carcharodon Megalodon, a prehistoric 70-foot, 70,000 pound version of our modern-day Great White.
"It's possible they went deep, trying to avoid pods of Orca, which may have been their only enemies. If so, then members of the species may still be around."
