Hello!

I went out to Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas, this April and I found my first batch of shark teeth ever, about 46 teeth!

I got some pictures of the six main ones I found interesting and that I would like y'all to ID for me.

Thanks!

Hi, nice teeth!

The first two are from a crow shark, genus Squalicorax.

third one is from a Mackerel shark of some sort, could be a symphyseal tooth which is from where the jaws meet.

fourth is also mackerel shark, hard to say without the root what species though. Leaning towards Cretalamna since that's the most common one there with a crown like that in my experience but impossible to say for sure without a root.

the goobers are either sand tiger or goblin shark, need clearer pics to say for sure but leaning toward sand tiger.

sixth is definitely goblin shark, Scapanorhynchus texanus.

Awesome, Thank you! I assumed the first two were either Squalicorax or Pseudocorax

3 looks like a Cretodus symphyseal - super jealous, that's on my to-find list. 5 are goblins - I've yet to find/see definitive sand tiger teeth in POC.

I agree.  I have what I think is a Cretodus parasymphyseal from Amon Carter Field that looks like that.
