We are giving away an authentic, 5+ inch long fossil tooth from the prehistoric, monster shark, the Megalodon. This tooth was collected in South Carolina after it eroded out of the Hawthorn Formation, making it approximately 4-7 million years old. The tooth is in good shape and you can even see many of the serrations preserved along the edges. It includes a custom stand to show it off.
In addition to this tooth that we are giving away, we have a wide variety of Megalodon teeth for sale in many different price ranges.
If you want to get a feel of what it is like digging for dinosaur fossils, here's a good video clip from PaleoAdventures collected at the "Tooth Draw Quarry" in South Dakota. Besides being one of our primary suppliers of Hell Creek Formation dinosaur material, PaleoAdventures runs a lot of great dig tours and educational programs.
Update: This seems to have gone viral on Facebook/Twitter and we hit our 100 requests for free educational fossils for the month within several hours. Depending on how much time it takes to ship these and if we can source similar material at a decent price we will increase the amount later this month. If not check back at the start of December and we will have a different type of fossil available and hopefully in larger quantities.
I have always believed that fossils and paleontology are a gateway for many kids to become interested in science. There is nothing more awe inspiring than to hold a real fossil in your hand and to be able to imagine what it was millions of years ago. Seeing a photo on the Internet or in a book just doesn’t have the same allure and visceral appeal to a young kid.
To that end, we are please to announce our “fossils for teachers” program to make available free fossil specimens for educational purposes monthly. Due to constraints, both monetarily and the time/cost it takes to ship them, we are only be able to make available a limited quantity each month on a first come, first serve basis. We will start with making available 100 specimens this month (November, 2014) and hopefully can expand it in future months.
This month we are going to be providing fossil Megalodon teeth, along with informational materials both on fossils, Megalodon and the specific teeth. Nothing is more awe inspiring to a kid than a real tooth of a prehistoric shark that grew in excess of 50 feet in length.
If you are a teacher or other educator and want to receive a free Megalodon tooth for use in the classroom use our Request Form.
Trilobites are an extinct marine animal that dominated Earth's oceans for 270 million years long before the first dinosaurs. There were over 25k known types some of them with very ornate shells covered in spines. This huge variety and their alien looking appearance makes them very appealing to collectors. We have a huge variety of trilobite fossils for sale ranging from inexpensive, common species to amazing museum quality specimens and everything in between. Buy fossils from us knowing you are getting authentic specimens, at the best value.
The Megalodon was a massive prehistoric shark that grew to lengths of up to 60 feet and went extinct 1.5 million years ago. It had giant teeth that could reach 7 inches in length (though only a handful have ever been found that large). For comparison the largest great white shark teeth did not reach 3 inches in length. Fossils of it's teeth can be found worldwide and are both impressive and terrifying. We have a wide selection of authentic Megalodon fossils for sale, starting around $10 which make great gifts, to collector quality teeth priced at $1,000+.
Fish have been around in the fossil record for over 500 million years and are one of the most diverse animals on our planet. Fossil fish are some of the most aesthetic and collectable fossils out there. FossilEra has a selection of beautiful fish fossils for sale from the Green River Formation of Wyoming as well as several other locations around the world. Not only do these fish make for beautiful displays but they are tremendously interesting from a scientific and historical perspective.
