Massive SC Megalodon Fossil to Be Auctioned Off

Although I initially posted this story only on the Coastal Carolinas Today blog, I had to do a post here now that this cool video has surfaced.

This record sized Megalodon fossil is set to be auctioned off by the Heritage Auction Galleries on June 12 and the starting bid is $625,000. The jaw measures 11 feet wide by 9 feet tall and the majority of the Megalodon teeth were found in South Carolina rivers.

Prior to going to the auction house, the jaw will be displayed at the Museum of Nature & Science in Dallas, TX. The following video shows the arrival, set up and final display of this truly impressive fossil. Enjoy!
