I’m zeroing in this weekend on a pile of small unorganized teeth from Aurora. These easiest to separate out first are these easy to spot, straight rooted, straight crowned, small laterals. I’ve always called these Lemon Sharks (Negaprion eurybathrodon) but as I read further, they look a lot like Carcharhinus brachyurus as well. any opinion before I move on from this nightmare and focus on something else?
Headed to the beach hoping the weatherman was right and could get to the edge of the shells piled at the shoreline just out of reach. The wind was predicted from the SW, but was calm then switched to the NE, and the tide stopped falling. The temperature stayed about 5 degrees lower than predicted as well. Couldn't get to the line of shells where I expected the bigger teeth should be, but with the wind causing a slow wash, teeth started appearing and I got a good variety, colorful and in good shape, though no big ones (and no cowshark, think I lost one in the wash). Will post the whale vertebra tomorrow after it dries. Weather is supposed to be warm tomorrow, may try another beach.
