Megalodon Fossil Replica

I borrowed this replica fossil of a C. megalodon shark. The fossil was to be used to show some grade school classes different types of fossils. The topic of dinosaurs and sharks comes up when giving fossil talks so I thought having this to show would give students some idea as to how large these sharks could get. This creature swam around in the Paleogene Period of the Cenozoic Era.
Thanks to Mark for loaning it to me.
