Found these in a creek the biggest one bottom right is 2.25” the one next to it with the broken root Has smaller blade but same length all together. The next is 2”. I was wondering if these are really big or more like above average? Thanks

Above average.  I have personally seen 3 1/4".  I know there are larger than that.

I was just posting Ken ( digit ) some of my teeth. Here was a true heartbreaker, a Carcharodon hastalis ( now removed from the Mako status, but many still refer to them as such ), if whole would have been close to the 3 3/8" range.

Here it is next to a 3" I found last year.

I have a couple larger blades but they are completely missing the root and I didn’t include them in the pic, also found them in another location. I still think without the tip that’s a really nice tooth.

One of the largest I've seen, Duplin Marl, North Carolina. -

There was a thread on the Forum called "3 inch Mako club"  you could probably find some good sized samples posted on there.
