Help with identification of Shark Jaw

Recommended Posts

I have a specimen of a shark jaw that I am unable to identify. From a quick search, it seems that it might be a snaggletooth shark jaw, but I am not completely sure.

I'm not as well-versed with modern shark teeth, but your jaw does seem to match the modern snaggletooth shark Hemipristis elongata (jaw pictured below).

Either way, this is not a creature you want giving you a "love smootch" on your arm or leg.
