The 3 inch mako club, so close and yet so far…

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!


Finally had the time to go out hunting again after a looooooong time :) We went quite a few times during the past week. Had a few kinda slow days, until we found a decent spot that produced some nice shark teeth.


Lots of mako's…




Some miscellaneous teeth




A small cowshark tooth :)

A broken dream…




Our first (slightly) pathological!





I had just started digging one day when I spotted a brown, light shimmering 'thing'. We usually find a lot of stones in that color, so I wasn't paying much attention to it at first. After digging up some sand, it became better visible and it got me a little curious, thinking it might be a tooth. The 'thing' was pretty big and I started hoping that it might be a nice tooth, but the bigger ones are usually broken so I wasn't expecting much. I went into the hole I was digging in and grabbed it; it was a big one! Removed the dirt from it and by surprise, this one was whole :D I was ecstatic, it's the biggest mako tooth we've ever found ;) Couldn't wait until we could measure it, thinking it might be a 3 incher. Unfortunately, it's about 2.75 inches, but I'm still very happy with it :) and the search continues (of course!) haha ;)



Right from the ground




All cleaned up





Have a nice day en happy hunting!

Kind regards,
