What kind of sharks are these?

Recommended Posts

Greetings Gang!

I found these while sifting through a creek in Northern Mississippi. Specifically at the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil park.  I'm pretty sure that the top four are "Goblin Shark", although I could be wrong. I don't know if the bottom ones are, or another species. This is the first time I did this, so happy with my results.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Joe

And I also found these at the same place.

I am pretty sure there some type of oyster, I just couldn't figure out what kind. I did look, but just couldn't figure it out.

Any help would be great.  And I assume this is on the same tread, but incase it's not, it's from Frankston Mississippi.

Any thoughts relative to what these are would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Joe

The top row are all Goblin lower teeth. The bottom looks like Goblin upper teeth, but not sure if they all are. Nice finds for your first time!:thumbsu:

I gotten a lot of feed back on these being Goblin Shark teeth. But Also, i've heard that they were scapanorhynchus shark

Scapanorhynchus is an extinct genus of Goblin Shark.
