Massive Shark Jaws Up For Auction
Tags: wild nature
The famous cinema shark Jaws would be considered an appetizer for the gigantic awe-inspiring Megalodon shark, which passed through the Earth’s oceans millions of years ago. The prehistoric jaws of one of these monsters are up for auction on June 12th in Dallas, with the bidding starting at $675,000. This price is probably a bit high for many shark collectors, but the auction house may get a few nibbles.
However, all is not what it appears to be. The man who found the 182 actual razor sharp teeth, Vito Bertucci, unfortunately found no other fossils from that particular shark. This fact means that the jaws are not real, but made out of Plexiglass. The size of the jaws is up for debate too. Vito was apparently not only an ambitious fossil excavator, but also potentially way off on his jaw size estimates.
We could all agree that the shark’s jaws were as huge as Bertucci made them to be for one reason: To stand in awe at the size, and think about how many of us would be devoured by a hungry Megalodon. Just looking at the size of those teeth makes me cringe.
