    HELP … So excited to have found this

    Found this today (02.10.2022) on Hayling Beach - I thanked the ocean by taking a dip ❤️
  2. Hello everybody So this is a question not directly regarding fossils, but I feel this is nevertheless the right place. Is there any information on how big the teeth of modern great white sharks can get? For Megalodon there is a great amount of information regarding the size of the teeth. But for modern great whites I only find information about the size of the whole shark. I would like to make a small display with my 5.64 inch Meg tooth and a modern great white. I was able to get a 2.4 in modern white shark tooth. But I dont know if this is big or average.

    Bull? Dusky? Great White?

    Hello All, I am new here and trying to identify the species of this tooth that I found in Folly Beach, South Carolina. Does anyone know what species it may be, and would you mind sharing how you came to your conclusion? Thanks! Sarah

    How large was the shark?

    I have just gotten a great white tooth. It measures right at 61mm or 2.4 inches. I’m curious how large the shark ? Any idea of a calculation? I tried one but I couldn’t make since of it. Help would be awesome.

    Juvenile great white shark tooth

    From the album: Sharks

    Great whites didn't start out "great." As young, small animals, they had narrower teeth suited for grasping slippery fish. As they age, the teeth broaden as their diet transitions to marine mammals. This small tooth measures ~ 1" on the slant and comes from the Early Pliocene of the Pisco formation in southern Peru. This is about as old as great white teeth get, they evolved from C. hubbelli near the start of the Pliocene (~ 5.3 Ma). Fossils are now illegal to export from Peru, this one was collected prior to 1990 under a Peruvian government permit. As ethical collectors, please do

    South American great whites

    From the album: Sharks

    These white sharks come from the deserts of Chile (left) and Peru (right).

    Peruvian great white

    From the album: Sharks

    Some rare colors on this tooth! While it looks like Bone Valley, this great white actually comes from southern Peru (Pisco formation, Early Pliocene). This is about as old as GW teeth get - the modern species evolved from C. hubbelli around the Early Pliocene (~ 5 million years ago). Fossils are now illegal to export from Peru, this one was collected prior to 1990 under a Peruvian government permit. As ethical collectors, please do your due diligence to verify any Peruvian fossils you're interested in were exported prior to the ban. I respect any country's decision to protect their natural

    Great white

    I hope everyone is doing well. Was on the beach today in NJ and I found what I think is a juvenile great white. I think it is worn because there is no serrations. My question at what point do great whites get serrations? I’m assuming it’s right from the beginning?

    Great white shark tooth

    From the album: Sharks

    One of the most coveted teeth due to the great white's popularity. Being one of my favorite animals, I knew I had to get a nice one eventually. This one in particular is special. Besides being in superb condition, this tooth has a bite mark on the root: three parallel grooves on the labial side of the root gouged by serrations. Bite marks on teeth are uncommon, and a neat feature on this already sweet tooth. This tooth is from the desert of northern Chile. Fossils from Chile are now illegal to export, so as an ethical collector you need to make sure that any Chilean f

    Shark tooth Id

    I have two teeth I have had for a while questioning their identities. My first tooth is from south Carolina,found earlier this year, I am not sure if it is a meg or a chub on the remaining corner it appears to have a slight cusp.The second tooth I have had for as long as I can remember, it appears to be either a large near posterior great white or a huge bull shark tooth.Any help is appreciated, thank you!

  12. Hello everyone! So something that I have been wondering recently is what is the prevalence of fossilized great white shark teeth? Any time I go online, into shops or shows there seems to be a lack of fossilized great white shark teeth. I always see megalodon teeth, mako teeth, and other fossilized teeth from all kinds of species of sharks but rarely do I see fossilized great white shark teeth. Is this because they aren't as common? Or are they just not as high of a demand as other teeth such as megs or makos? From what I understand they can be found in the Carolinas, Chile, and even here somet

    Shark Teeth Mystery

    My best guess is the black shark tooth is a sand shark and maybe the grey is a great white . . . have no idea what the gold sample is! Any thoughts?
  14. Trying to nail down the evolutionary chain of Carcharodon carcharias and its pretty figured out until you get to the very beginnings... It seems that either Isurolamna inflata or Cretolamna schoutedini are the earliest relatives in the evolutionary development of carcharias, but I'm looking for some expert advice.... I know that Carcharodon plicatilis is rightfully disputed but is included as a reference... Isurolamna inflata ? Macrorhizodus praecursor Carcharodon hastalis Carcharodon plicatilis Carcharodon hubelli Carcharodon ca
  15. Hi. I am over the moon with this find. I usually find only find 10-20 teeth on the beach each summer. I have only found 3 teeth all summer on the beach. Mainly because I am spending more time with the kids than searching. But tonight was low tide…. Three steps into looking….. so excited it’s 1 inch and perfect!!!!!
  16. Hi all, I went out for a quick shark tooth hunt this evening in Charleston, SC and had some awesome luck! I found these two Alopias grandis teeth right next to each other! They measure at 1.575 inches and are much larger than the other ones I have found. I also found a small lower Great White with a fully in tact root for the first time which have been hard to come by in Charleston. Love the dark blue crown and light colored root on it. Of course my phone died after I took the in situ picture of the Great White so I couldn’t get any in situ pictures of the two Alopias g

    GREAT WHITE? OR Megladon?

    Found this lastnight and call me a rookie but I can't identify if she's a GW or a Meg tooth for the life of me! Beautiful 1.75in almost mother of pearl color with lighting bolt markings (common for the area I explore). No serrations and the root is higher up on the tooth which makes me think GW right!? But then it looks as if the root which typically dips lower on Meg teeth is missing but at some point in time was there! I don't know and when I Google Lens her it says she's an arrowhead??? Plz end my inner mystery...help lol! Jeez I love this stuff 20210805_071105.heic 20210805_071114.hei

    Megalodon or white shark?

    Hey Guys! This one is probably a lot more obvious than I'm making it. My head says Megalodon due to the age of Bone Valley and the size, but my gut says white shark due to no Bourlette, the shape of the enamel where it meets the root on the distal and mesial side, and the serrations. So I decided to seek out an outside opinion. This is from Bone Valley Florida. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
  19. I've been looking around for a fossilized great white shark tooth for some time now and it seems like there just aren't many to choose from. The price also seems crazy for them. Are they more desirable than other fossilized shark teeth? It seems like I can get a small Meg for the cost of a Great White. My aunt has been wanting one, but I'm more confused on the price and availability of them. Are they more rare than Megs? Or are they just more desired? I don't want to get a modern one because of the way sharks are hunted. Does anyone know of why the prices and availability are they way they are
  20. Beautiful weather forecast and Green Mill Run is low enough to hunt. Even knowing I rarely find much worth displaying, sometimes you just need a day in the field so I coerce cajole one of my housemates to take the morning and have a little adventure. Even with every intention to only use the screen with the larger size mesh, nevertheless within the first dozen shovels we are using the smaller mesh. I suppose if we are ever really serious about leaving behind the little fossils, we will have to leave behind the small mesh screen! But that is hard to do when we find such little gems as s
  21. 2 days ago I found a beautiful jet black fossilised great white shark tooth almost 4cm long on a Sunshine Coast beach. I think it may be a lucky find as we’ve combed the beach for a few days now at low tide and nothing more to be found. I haven’t been able to find anything about finds in this area either. Not sure if anyone knows if it is a rare thing here?
