Tiger Shark Teeth?

Recommended Posts

hokietech96

Can anyone help ID these two shark teeth.  I inherited my Grandfathers collection and I am trying to group them into shark type.  I believe these are all tiger shark teeth.  If you anyone can take a quick glance and confirm that would be much appreciated.

Hi,

 

I think yes, but in the second pic some of ones (right side) are in black (without light).

I think all of them are tiger shark. But wait for the opinion of other members.

The one circled in green is a Hemipristis serra tooth .. a Snaggletooth shark.

The majority of your teeth are from the extinct tiger shark, Galeocerdo mayumbensis. There are a few at the bottom of your first picture that are the tiger shark species, Galeocerdo cuvier. You also have 1 Hemipristis serra tooth.
