Jerrychang posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionRecently I bought some fossilized shark teeth from sukabumi, indonesia. There are plenty of bulls, dusky, lemons, big hemis and tigers and a lot of giant megalodon, but why are there so few great white shark teeth, and why hastalis almost never seen? Is it because hastalis are extinct at that time? And is it because the great white shark failed to compete with the megalodon in that place?
I purchased this from Indonesia, I have seen a lot available and was not real expensive. It is stuck in matrix that is very solid, the crab is exposed and polished. Hard to tell if it is real or some kind of cast mold in a concrete mixture for matrix. Wanted to see if anyone knew for sure or not. Is there some possible tests on the matrix to see if it is glued or concrete mixture?
