Fossil charcaradon shark tooth

Description: The Charcarodon is thought to have been about fifty feet long and weighed about eight times more then a Great White Shark. However, since shark skeletons are made of cartilage, flexible connective tissue that is not bone, and do not usually fossilize, we do not know how long it was for sure. Imagine, this monstrous creature probably ate whales as it cruised the oceans!
