“This tooth belongs in a museum in Malta. We will do everything we can to get this piece of natural heritage back, ”said the minister Jose Herrera of Culture against the Times of Malta. He did not provide details of a possible plan of action.
The British biologist and television producer Sir David Attenborough had found the 23-million-year-old tooth of a megalodon in the early 1960s while on holiday in Malta, then still under British rule. It seemed to him a suitable gift for the prince, he told the Sunday Times. “I remember getting fossils from an adult at his age, too, so I thought, I’ll do the same.”
Volgens Attenborough was George pleased with it. “He asked what it was, how big it was and so on. George was very interested and seemed to like it a lot. He is more than interested in fossils. ”
