    Shark tooth identification

    Hi Everyone, I've had this shark tooth fossil for 17+ years now and I would love to know which species it's from. I got it from an American relative who said their dad found it on a beach (I'm pretty sure in Florida). If you think further up close pics are necessary I'm happy to provide that. Thanks for your help in advance Shane

    Great white shark tooth (juvenile)

    From the album: Sharks

    Lower anterior early great white shark tooth (Early Pliocene) from a juvenile individual. Juvenile white sharks had narrower teeth than the adults, more suited for catching fish and cephalopods. Fossils are now illegal to export from Peru, this one was collected prior to 1990 under a Peruvian government permit by the BHI.

    Great white shark tooth

    From the album: Sharks

    Nice color on this early great white shark tooth (Early Pliocene). This one comes from the desert of southern Peru, where a long period of sand blasting has smoothed this tooth to a near-polish, all but erasing the serrations. Fossils are now illegal to export from Peru, this one was collected prior to 1990 under a Peruvian government permit by the BHI.

    Great white shark tooth

    Cool two-toned early great white shark tooth (Early Pliocene). Fossils are now illegal to export from Peru, this one was collected prior to 1990 under a Peruvian government permit by the BHI.

    Summerville/Greens Mill Run side trip

    Better late than never right?! I'm finally getting around to sharing my finds from a recent trip up the east coast for work, with a few pitstops along the way! The first two images were from an all day hunt in a creek in Summerville, with Folly Beach Fossils! The third image are my spoils from a solo half a day in GMR... Right by elm street park, because the water was way too high to go further down stream from there, and I didn't have much time! What a great time finding a couple of new species and making a few more friends along the way! I ca

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.

    HELP … So excited to have found this

    Found this today (02.10.2022) on Hayling Beach - I thanked the ocean by taking a dip ❤️
  9. 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!

  19. 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?
  21. 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
