More about the Megalodon
Megalodon sharks lived approximately 23 million years ago. They were the largest predator ever to live on the Earth. Their name comes from the Greek words: Megas (meaning big) + Odont (meaning tooth).
A massive shark, reaching estimated lengths of more than 60 feet and weighing in at a colossal 60 tons, the Megalodon dwarfs most anything alive today.
The mouth of this jaw dropping creature had a potent conveyer belt of 5 rows of teeth inside it, with around 276 teeth in it's mammoth mouth at a time. It also had the genetic ability to replace lost teeth within a 48 hour turn-around time!
Extinction of the Meg
Megalodon sharks lived across the globe until around 2.6 million years ago when they became extinct due to climate change and possibly, the receding shallow, coastal waters which were home to their nurseries. The Meg was a fan of warmer waters and could not sustain when the oceans became colder during the onset of the Ice Ages.
History of Shark's Tooth Amulets
During the Renaissance, fossilized shark teeth were commonly thought to be a remedy for various poisons, and were used in the treatment of snake bites. Due to this ingrained belief, many noblemen wore them as pendants, or kept them in their pockets as good-luck charms.
The oldest known record of fossilized sharks teeth are from Pliny the Elder (23–79 CE) who believed that these strange triangular objects fell from the sky during lunar eclipses.
The dart like shape of the shark's fossil tooth was said to offer protection and shark's teeth fossils have in fact been dug up at various ancient archeological sites.
