Hi there,

I would just like to find out how many of you out there on the forum has managed to find a Meg tooth at Walton On The Naze? I visited at the the beginning of the summer and managed to collect some decent shark teeth, a few gastropods, and a brachiopod, but no Meg tooth! This obviously my goal. I felt so despondent after the hunt that the only way that I could cheer myself up was to purchase a Meg tooth online. I was pleased when it arrived and yes it is proudly on display, however nothing is as sweet as discovering your own find. 

So if anyone has been so lucky as to find a Meg tooth, please could you pass on some techniques, best locations at the Naze. It will be really appreciated. I've loved the movie Jaws since I was a kid and had a lifelong fascination with sharks, especially the Great White, but what better thrill could there be than to find a Megalodon tooth?

I have three and probably know of around 5 others who have them. What you have to understand is that Meg teeth are extremely uncommon at Walton, I never ever go expecting to find one. I also predict that they will become less and less common over time as more of the exposures get overgrown.
If you want to find one, either get ready for the long haul, or get saving up for a holiday abroad.
Cheers

Thanks for the reply Naze Dave. Wow, 3 Megs, lucky you, well done! Any chance of posting images of them, would be great to see.

Hi, can you start your own post this one is over 4yrs old.

I can see you have a lot of teeth, maybe a clearer photo which is closer will help.
