Squalicorax teeth, and book suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Jazfossilator

Found Myrtle beach South Carolina, are all of these teeth Squalicorax Kaupi? I don’t trust myself to be sure. Help appreciated, also if anybody knows of good shark tooth identification books covering North American sharks teeth I’d love to know!

Probably a mix of Squalicorax kaupi and Squalicorax pristodontus. The website www.elasmo.com is very good for shark tooth identification.

The elasmo site is great.  Another good reference for Cretaceous teeth is this one.

Out of publication, I think,  but a great book with specifics on identification of teeth,

The first two images are all Squalicorax kaupi. The next two images are all S. kaupi except for the first tooth which is S. pristodontus. The last two images are all S. kaupi except for the first tooth which is S. pristodontus.

Wait, I am confused, how do Cretaceous teeth end up on Myrtle Beach??

Cretaceous deposits are underneath and offshore Myrtle Beach. There has been dredging and beach nourishment activities in the past years.

This last trip to Myrtle beach I only found 2 squalicorax teeth, each of those groupings above are from a single trip so it seems depending on the dredging activities determines when these teeth pop up on these beaches.
