Peace River Sharks Teeth (is it a MEG?!)

Recommended Posts

 Going to post this multiple times due to multiple images. There are just a couple here that I am most curious about but would love any and all feedback. I will post in the order of priority for lack of better words. For some context, took the family to the peace river up in Zolfo Springs, near Arcadia.  We found approx 50 teeth, mostly small but some cool ones.  Lots of Ray plates and some bones.   Most of these are placed up against a US penny simply for a size reference. Any help in identifying would be much appreciated.  Thanks all!!!

Hi There,

 

These are both common examples .. warts and all of Carcharhinus sp. (Requiem sharks). Welcome to the forum .. sounds like you guys had a blast !

Yep ... More of the same ... you'd be surprised. They were, and still are, a prolific bunch. Nailing down any single tooth to a specific species is hard enough.

I agree it's a Carcharhinus.  It looks like an upper tooth - perhaps the first upper anterior position.
