How many teeth does a megalodon shark have?
Most sharks have about 3-5 rows of teeth at any time. The front set does most of the work. The first two rows are used for obtaining prey, the other rows rotate into place as they are needed. As teeth are lost, broken, or worn down, they are replaced by new teeth. Megalodon may have had hundreds of teeth at one time.
Asked in Sharks
How many rows of teeth does a shark have?
Sharks generally have five rows of teeth with about 46 teeth in each row. Depending on the species, they have an average total of 230 teeth. For example, Great White Sharks can have 50,000 teeth in a lifetime. These teeth are set in layered rows with 5 to 15 in both upper and lower jaws. The teeth do not have a root so they break easily. The teeth are arranged in rows of 5-7 teeth like a conveyer belt. When a tooth falls out from the front the tooth from the next row moves up to take its place. At any time a white shark will have about 300 teeth in various stages of development within its jaws.

The teeth are arranged in rows of 5-7 teeth like a conveyor belt. When a tooth falls out from the front the tooth from the next row moves up to take its place.
