    Pisco Formation Carcharhinus teeth

    I’m starting to work on the Carcharhinus and related shark displays. I’ve got three teeth from the Pisco Formation, Sacaco location that I can’t quite nail down as far as ID. I know they could end up being Carcharhinus sp but I thought I’d give an ID post a chance. I’m not really confident in my ability to ID the gray sharks. The first two look like they might be C. obscurus to me but I know there would be other possibilities. They are both right around 13mm on the slant so not very large. The first one is in better shape, the second is pretty worn. The third tooth is actua

    Carcharhinus melanopterus, Waimanalo Fm

    From the album: Pleistocene

    Carcharhinus melanopterus, Oahu Stage 4, Pleistocene May, 2023 Blacktip Reef Sharks are the most common Carcharhinus species present today and live amongst reefs, so I think it is a safe ID.

    Hawaiian Hunting

    A couple days ago I embarked on an adventure to a site I was never expecting to visit. The setting was a family vacation to the Hawaiian islands of Maui and Oahu and I initially had no intention of crawling around in gravel bars as I so often do at home. Nevertheless one thing led to another and I ended up going on a hunt that was perhaps the most unforgettable outing of my fossil career and I came away with some amazing specimens impossible to find anywhere else. Maui Our trip started on the lesser populated island of Maui which is a bit younger than its

    Sandbar Shark

    From the album: Sharks

    This species of shark is commonly seen in aquariums - you can recognize it by its proportionately large dorsal fin.

    Galveston shark teeth

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Found 3 teeth this weekend trip. Galveston shark teeth are very hard to find (for me). These were all found on the main island (not Bolivar). The top two I believe are the sandbar shark (C. plumbeus) and the lower one is a tiger shark (G. cuvier).

    Small shark teeth from SC

    Just acquired a small shark tooth, but not sure about the species. Need some help with identifying this one. It is serrated but not so obvious. I think it might be hammerhead, lemon shark, or carcharhinus sp?
  7. ClearLake

    Small Lee Creek Shark Tooth

    I received some matrix from @sixgill pete a while back in a TFF auction and picked most of it a while back and ID'd the bulk of the teeth and other material. Lately I have been going back through some of my sharks teeth and looking more closely at items I was unsure of These three teeth are one such group out of this matrix. I have read Purdy et, al (2001) a bunch of times, looked at elasmo.com for hours on end, read dozens of threads on here and am still a bit confused/uncertain. So, I figured why no just ask and get several more opinions, I always appreciate what folks here have to offer

    Carcharhinus signatus

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    Sharks of the genus Carcharhinus are the most common find in the stream gravel. Due to tremendous variability within the genus, it is difficult to assign a species to these teeth, but these are unique enough to feel somewhat confident is the C. signatus designation.

    Carcharhinus brachyurus (Gunther 1870)

    From the album: Pisces

    Slant length 18mm. Miocene Burdigalian. Meco Beach, Sesimbra, Lisbon Region, Portugal. Thanks to Vieira for the trade.

    A few more shark teeth

    The weather was great today, so I hopped on the bike and headed off to check out a new museum in the area which was supposed to have opened up on April 1st, but I guess it must have been an April Fool's joke because it was closed. Well, actually we got locked down on Monday, so they weren't allowed to open the doors. I was just hoping, and anyway it was a nice day for a ride. It's a small branch of the well-known and much larger Hauff Museum in Holzmaden, so one of these days soon (hopefully), I'll drop in again to have a look around and talk shop with the proprietors. After I'd studied t
  11. I've been going through my shark tooth collection recently trying to refine my ids. This one here has me somewhat stumped. I had identified it as Carcharhinus priscus, but I'm not at all sure any more and am now starting to wonder if it may be a chub or great white. The first photo, which I think is the labial view, seems to fit, but what I believe to be the lingual view (2nd photo) has me confused. The tooth is from the southern German Miocene Burdigalian. Slant length 15mm. Any advice here would be appreciated.

    Carcharhinus altimus tooth?

    South Florida Beach Find. Pretty sure it's genus Carcharhinus. Elongate, curved blade, singular notch and root configuration has me thinking C. altimus (bignose shark). C. acronotus was also similar, but that species tends to be small (<5 ft), apparently. The tooth is 13-14mm in vertical height, which seems a bit large for a 5-foot Carcharhinid. Thoughts?

    STH Micros in need of ID help

    I am fairly comfortable with the STH micros as far as identification goes but I found a few things that I need some help with. First up is one that I am 90% sure on the ID but I want to be sure. I believe I found a couple of Raja teeth. The first one I found looks to be complete and tiny, a little over 1mm. I know skate teeth are somewhat uncommon in this fauna and this would be my first one.
