Ancient giant shark tooth goes missing in Australia

A prehistoric tooth belonging to an extinct giant shark has been stolen from a secret location in a remote coastal stretch of western Australia. The fossilized tooth is estimated to be between 2 and 2.5 million years old.

The stolen megalodon tooth, which was one of two located in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Coast, was in a semi-secret location and attached to a rock.

"It had quite defined features on it, so you could see the serrated edge of the shark's tooth, it was probably one of the better specimens we knew of", Arvid Hogstrom, from Western Australia's Parks and Wildlife Service, told AFP. "We presume an amateur collector [has taken it] or someone that just wants to have a fossil sitting on their mantelpiece". Hogstrom said that his team had been working on protecting the fossil, which is some 10 centimetres long (3.93 inches), by concealing it with rocks while considering a range of options for its longer-term perseveration. "It is in such a remote location and we just don't check the site every day, we are not exactly sure when it disappeared, but we got a report on Friday".

The three-inch fossilised tooth belonged to a Megalodon, believed to be the largest sea creature in history that died out about 2.6 million years ago.
