Some Sharkteeth from Antwerp - Belgium

Recommended Posts

Dan9949

Hi everyone,

I'm very new to everything to do with Fossils, so bear with me:). Recently i went to Antwerp, Belgium to look for some shark teeth. I found a few teeth in about 3 hours of siving. Even though most were broken, i'd like to be able to identy atleast the whole ones. I'd gladly appreciate any help i can get!

#I,5,6,& 7 are Makos.

#3&4 appear to be Sandtiger.

Thanks a lot guys, helped me out a lot already. Nr.3 is still a mystery though, I've looked up several sand tiger shark teeth, but it doesn't really look like it. Everything else seems on point!

#3 could possibly be an extremely worn Hemipritis serra ( Snaggletooth) lower tooth.

 Yes, that could definately be it too. I took a few more pictures from different angles just incase you can tell something more about it that way. It has a really weird shape.
