Shark tooth ID - Florida finds

Recommended Posts

PalaeoArt

Wondered if I could get a little help ID'ing these two shark teeth I found at the weekend in a creek off the Peace River, Florida. I found lots of nicely colored Lemon, Tiger and Dusky shark teeth over the weekend but these two were a little different

Tooth #1 - This is the yellow tooth with the curved tip. This had the hallmarks for a Lemon with the flat root, but the very curved tip looked odd. Is this a pathological Lemon or another species?

Tooth #2 - This looks like a symphyseal tooth but I don't think it's a Tiger as it's not got any fine serrations. Any thoughts.

Both are about 0.5".

Thanks in advance

I think it is possible that the first tooth is a posterior Lemon shark tooth and the second is a Physogaleus contortus tooth that has the serrations worn off.
