I’ve been working on getting all of our shark teeth properly identified so I went back to a few teeth from the Demopolis Formation. These are from the Frankstown location in Mississippi. 

 

The first one up is right around 1” and the little cusps are what initially confused me. Is this a Cretoxyrhina perhaps? 

I found some images of Cretoxyrhina with cusps that looked similar.

I believe this is a Carcharias but am not 100% on that ID.

You could be right. I’ll take a closer look.
