Well @Paleoworld-101 she got in first. My daughter pulled up this lovely Isurus hastalis form Beaumaris today, her first tooth. She's pretty chuffed.

  Now I say Isurus hastalis but I'm trying to go on the plates from vertebrate palaeontology of Australia, thanks for the heads-up on this @Paleoworld-101, but they're pretty dark so if anyone can pin-point this bad boy I would be grateful.

Awesome find! 

 

The species has more recently been reassigned to the genus Carcharodon so it is a Carcharodon hastalis, an extinct white shark tooth. 

 

Was it from the northern or southern side of the yacht squadron?

Hey @Paleoworld-101, yup she is pretty happy. We had a super low tide today & managed to get around to the South side (left as you look out from the squadron). A few more whale frags to take home from the North side but the tooth was the only find from the South. Needless to say I am very envious :D
