My shark tooth collection

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to share my collection and also ask for some advice. I am looking for a good way to display my nicest makos, hemis and great whites on the top shelf. I am planning to display my megs as pictured in one of the below photos. Please comment any ideas you may have for me on how to display them. I restored a lot of the teeth in my collection. I am 16 so I have a very limited budget and could never afford all of these things if they were the real thing. That being said, here it is:

and last but not least great whites. Please, if anyone has a good idea for a display for these I could make/buy that isn't too expensive and could fit on a book shelf, then please let me know.

Here that? ''Tis my jaw dropping! Those Whites are really nice! Recently @sixgill pete posted a thread that had a cheaper way of displaying some smaller things, maybe a few of your teeth could fit in a hockey puck display case with some cut foam placed behind it, basically a plastic ryker case.

Thanks for the tip! :) I restored those great whites this morning. I buy complete blades and pop on a new root. It's a lot of fun!

Nice collection.

"Riker mounts" are a good way to display shark teeth.

Woah! Beautiful specimens you have here! :) 

And as said before, Riker Mounts/Cases are a great way to display fossil teeth.
