    Please correct "Crown Shark" to "Crow Shark".  Squalicorax is commonly called "Crow Shark", not "Crown Shark".  The name "Crown Shark" is applied to the Recent shark species Sphyrna corona, which has no relationship with Squalicorax

    @Ramon  you should really post pictures of both sides of the tooth in Collections.

    Also, you should try to edit the photos to be brighter. 

    Thanks
