Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found  I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. 

Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it,  haha!

I'm not sure. Is Otodus known from Brownie's Beach? I have never heard of an Otodus being found there. Thank you for the help!

It’s out of focus. It might be a posterior hastalis tooth.

They are from the calvert formation. I believe that its around 18-22 million years old.

I’m not sure but I think otudus were earlier than this so @Al Dente is most likely right:)

I agree with Al Dente, looks like a postiteor C.hastalis.

Take a look at this thread.
