Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it, haha!
I was given a jar of fossil shark teeth by a friend who knows I use them in education. These were collected on beaches in Florida but some of unknown origin seemed to be mixed in with the lemon, dusky, and sand tiger teeth. As I went through the teeth, one really jumped out as soon as I saw it. It did not look like the rest of teeth and it looked very similar to the Edestus tooth I have in my collection. I can not say for sure but I honestly can not think of anything else it is. In the pictures, the top tooth is my Edestus. The bottom is the partial that appears to be an edestus. Anybody have an opinion on this ?
