Added three new teeth in recent times to my collection of exotic meg teeth, I'd like to share since there,s not to many images from these localities out there, the photos maybe in shabby quality because I pulled them directly from my Instagram page to save time.

 

1) This partial tip of a meg was found in the Chiba prefecture of Japan! Acquiring this, even just a fragment was a real pain in the butt as megs from Japan are extremely scare.

 

2) Even though its not a Meg of course but still being the closest ancestor, this 3.1inch chubutensis tooth was found at a land site in Lecce, Italy with gorgeous color!

 

3) This tooth measuring 4.1 inches came from new site in Bangkalan City, Java, Indonesia. A majority of the megs here were found with absolutely terrible preservation so this one is one of the best out of the bunch!

 

A few more pics of these teeth can be found on their posts on my page at https://www.instagram.com/nyislandfossils/ if its ok to post this here.

Very nice. It is always great to see megs from exotic locales. Amazing how the coloration of the blade on the tooth from Italy is so close to the cream color of the megs and chubs from the Pungo River Formation at Lee Creek.

It's tough to get any fossil teeth from Japan so even an identifiable tooth tip is a good pick-up.  Isurus90064 showed a great white or two in another thread.

 

Yeah, I have one of those absolutely terrible megs from Indonesia.  I didn't get a label but it supposed to be from somewhere around the Duri Oilfield.

@siteseer Indeed the ones near complete to appear every once in a blue moon are super expensive as well, so even a tip is satisfying enough, I also have a great white from japan as well.

 

@LiamL Thanks! I try to share new specimens when I can.
