Mako Shark Relative?

Recommended Posts

I feel like these teeth are from a relative of the Mako Shark, assuming they are the same species. Any ideas?

where were these found and what is the age of the sediments there?

I'm pretty sure Lake Murray, and I'm not sure about the age.

In order to get accurate I.D.'s on any fossil, but especially shark teeth it is important to keep records. Where they were found for sure is a good start, but also the formation can narrow things down. I am not sure about the age of the sediments in and around Lake Murray, but it is a large area. Remember there are deposits from the Cretaceous through the Miocene / Pliocene in S.C.

I am pretty sure the second one is a mako of some sort, it lacks striations, is broad and potentially symmetrical (lower goblin teeth are symmetrical too, but they are much less broad than this tooth), therefore it should be Miocene-Pliocene. Assuming both teeth are from the same location, first tooth should be a sand tiger, Carcharias taurus.
