    Carcharocles (O.) angustidens Also two barracuda teeth in a portion of jaw

    © Matthew Brett Rutland

  2. I often hear collectors identify a certain type of fish tooth as "either wahoo or barracuda", but I have never seen any photos, articles, books, etc. that show how to tell the difference between the two types of teeth. I know that there are positional variations, but beyond that, are many of the teeth very similar for both species, making them easy to misidentify? Or is there a way to easily distinguish between them? I am referring to specimens collected in the Oligocene beds of S.C. if that helps any. Photos or illustrations would be helpful.
  3. Barracuda tooth?

    Found today at myrtle beach South Carolina, thinking it's a barracuda tooth but I want to make sure

  5. 7-2-17 Calvert Cliffs

    Went out for a quick hunt this afternoon. I found a sweet upper anterio-lateral cow, a barracuda tooth which is rare for the beach i was on, and my largest to date shark vert. Also i think i found some sort of munition the round ball beneath whale material it is made of metal and is mushroomed on one side. Not to shabby for a quick walk.
  6. Sphyraena bolcensis AGASSIZ, 1844

    Recent Sphyraenea barracuda, own work of Laban712 (from Wikipedia) The genus Sphyraena (from Latin: "pike-like") belongs to the order Perciformes. Members of the genus Sphyraena, better known as Barracudas, are elongated fish, pike-like in appearance, with large pointed heads and jaws. The two dorsal fins are widely separated with the anterior fin having five spines, the posterior fin having only one spine and nine soft rays. The posterior dorsal fin is similar in size to the anal fin and is situated above it. Barracudas normally have an under bite with prominent sharp-edged fang-like teeth in sockets. The oldest known barracuda fossil found so far dates to the Eocene period. All members of the genus Sphyraena are voracious predators; they feed upon cephalopods and crustaceans but mainly prey on fishes. Young barracudas can be often seen in small schools. Adult barracudas are considered to be solitary when it comes to hunting. The great barracuda can swim up to 35 mph, yet it can move forward slowly with no apparent effort; thus increasing its stealth. Barracuda are found primarily in tropical and subtropical waters of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans, but certain species such as the Great Barracuda lives in brackish water.
