Carcharocles megalodon, inhabited the warm coastal waters of the world approximately 17 million years ago to about 2 million years ago. Their somewhat smaller predecessors roamed the seas as early as the late Eocene, about 35 mya. The specimens from which these teeth came are estimated to have lived about 10 mya. Fossilized shark jaw remains, apart from teeth and vertebrae, are very rare as skeletal structure in sharks is almost entirely cartilage.

Fossilized teeth of the Megalodon Shark became the official state fossil of North Carolina on June 26, 2013. Excerpt of Session Law 2013-189, House Bill 830: Whereas, the megalodon shark is an extinct shark species that lived over 1.5 million years ago... ^rh
