An English boy made quite the discovery: a 4-inch tooth belonging to the extinct megalodon shark.
Earlier this month, 6-year-old Sammy Shelton reportedly came across the fantastic find while looking for shells on Bawdsey Beach in Suffolk.
A megalodon was a mackerel shark estimated to have been as long as 65 feet. It is said to have lived between three and 23 million years ago, according to a report.

Sammy was so excited by the find that he brought it to school to share with his classmates during show and tell. He also sleeps with the rare tooth next to his bed every night.
"Really we were looking for interesting shells on the beach but instead we got this megalodon tooth," said his father, Peter Shelton. "It was huge and very heavy. I knew what it was but it wasn't until I took it to others looking on the beach that I realised the significance."
