Shark tooth with matrix?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I was wondering what is attached to the root of this tooth... it’s not root, and it’s weird placement for matrix, could it be a little bit of the jaw still attached, like cartilage? I’m pretty sure it’s Carcharhinus, but if anyone could confirm, I’d really appreciate it! TIA!

I'm not sure about what's attached to the tooth but knowing the size and location might help. The tooth could be carcharhinus but to me it looks like a dusky shark. I'm not an expert though so let's see what everyone else has to say. Here are some examples of dusky sharks that looks similar to yours.
