If you have an extra $700,000 lying round, you could be the owner of this. (Story here)

Does she come with it?

Uncertain.

Too big to mount in the house. I could mount it to the outside though

Repeatedly, if an Arfcommer is the buyer.

Super predator.

We all have seen huge great whites. Check out this comparison between a Megalodon and a Great White:

If I were a billionaire I'd use that to clone hundreds of megalodon and keep them in a poorly staffed ocean enclosure attached to my private island. What could possibly go wrong?

Why not? You have a better chance of an encounter with a Great White, which are alive today

Because I like my boat to be bigger than the monsters in the water.
I don't currently have a 60' boat to cruise around in.

Pretty pricey, the teeth are the only fossil part. The rest is a reconstruction.

My marine bio teacher had a Megalodon tooth. Larger than anyone's hand - really impressive.

IIRC scientists think they died out only 1.5m years ago. That's really not that long ago...

I would. We are far too small to be considered a source of nourishment. They ate whales.
Link Posted: 3/16/2011 4:40:00 AM EST
Only the teeth are fossils

The Jaw is a reconstruction that is thought to be way out of proportion to the real size.

Disappointing really.... it would have been an amazingly huge shark if the jaw was real, and it has certainly inspired some impressive artwork.

I have several hundred meg teeth that I have collected over the years, both diving, and cliff scouring in Maryland. My biggest is only 6 -1/4 inches though.

Wow, maybe i can get my oral surgeon to retrofit those jaws in if my teeth end up dying... For the curious look at my thread titled "I Broke My Face This Morning"

My dad has a bunch of those teeth. That was a big bitch. I've heard some theories that they might still be around, but there is no proof.
