More Shark Teeth

Recommended Posts

Gatorman

I would say bull shark its definitely of the genus Carcharhinus most likely Carcharhinus leucas. Possibly Carcharhinus obscurus or Dusky shark, it's a decent tooth the serrations appear sharp but the root is pretty worn.

Bull really worn. Serrations are gone tip is gone but you can see that the root is in better shape and leads me to say this one is a Bull rather than Dusky.

I'm trying to become a pro, but I have a long ways to go. Here is some more shark teeth. What do you think they are? They are from Venice Beach, FL.

Thanks-

Northern Sharks

L-R: Looks like a Lemon shark, middle is possibly a lower Mako with a badly damaged root and no tip, some Carcharinus, also with a somewhat damaged root

The apex of the crown of the first tooth appears smooth. If the shoulders are serrated that would certainly support Northern Sharks' suggestion that it's a Lemon. If there is any evidence of serrations over the whole crown, that would drop the Lemon and, in my opinion, open up the possibility of a Bull or Dusky lower.
