    Great White Shark Tooth (Neonate)

    From the album: Sharks

    Carcharodon carcharias (Neonate) Pisco Formation, Departamento de Arequipa, Sitio Sacaco, Peru Right Upper Lateral A small tooth from a young-of-the-year great white (~ 1.5 m / 5 ft total length). Teeth of these very young individuals are narrower than adult teeth, and possess lateral "cusplets" - features that aid in their piscivorous (fish-dominated) diet.

    Shark tooth and rooted tooth from Morocco

    Hiya everyone I bought a lot a while back, going through it I found a rooted tooth that wasn’t mentioned, my best guess is due to the shape it’s a whale tooth, also there was a shark tooth unlike any other in my collection, any help with ids would be great thanks.

    Great white purchase

    Hello I recently purchased these two teeth that were in a bin of South Carolina shark teeth. The seller believed they were tiger shark but I immediately knew that was incorrect. I was just wondering if could get your opinions. They are from South Carolina and I believe that are Miocene in age. Thanks -Daniel 1 inch 0.70 inch

    Shark teeth Queensland

    We’ve had a little more luck here in Qld Australia, our collection is growing. we think a few great white and Mako? What do you think? so excited to find these.

    2.2" Great White

    From the album: Sonickmonx's South Carolina Finds

    My only nice great white, and at 2.2" it is quite large for the species.

    Shark tooth identification

    Found embedded in mud beside roots of a tree on a nature trail above chandler river SC. This was after things had dried out after a tropical storm. Tooth has been repaired as (it was found to be broken when extracted from the mud). Because of the telltale mark between root and blade leads me to believe it to be either megalodon, angustiden or chubitensis. But the very flat root shape, very triangular shape, thin blade lead me to also suspect large great white.

    September 24, 2023

    Yesterday evening we went out to a spot we haven't visited in a while, it started out extremely slow, until we hit on one spot that held a possible whale tooth (link to ID thread at bottom) and from there we started pulling out a lot more teeth, here's what we found, enjoy! nice hastalis, probably 1 1/2 inches great white with some great colors fish jaw Whale tooth?
  8. After hurricane Ian hit last year, I made a trip report from a location that doesn't offer many perfect teeth: I have been back there probably 12+ times since then, but have never come close to that many finds...until now. This is one pass of the creek, but split into two trips due to getting rained out halfway through the first day. Also, I only surface hunt, leaving lots for all of the sifters to find. My first nurse shark tooth! At 5 mm, I'm lucky to have found it surface hunting: Broken arrowhead, but I rarely find these: Broken C. catticus. Such a shame since they are uncommon here: I think these are all odontocete teeth (maybe not the first one): Worn horse tooth and a frag: Verts and hypural bones, etc. One is 3 or 4 verts fused together! Ray mouthplate bits: Other miscellaneous: Better picture of the sawfish rostral tooth(?): Otodus and suspected Otodus frags: And did you see it in the mix? I finally got a complete angy here, although it is missing the serration on the tip. Still, this is as good as they come at this location: Other "larger" teeth (sand tigers, hastalis, great whites, Isurus): Close-up of one of the great whites, since I don't find many anywhere in Summerville, and the ones I do find are usually missing the root: Lots of smalls: I don't keep many bones, but here are a few odd pieces, a worn cetacean vert, turtle, and a couple shells: No 4+ inch angy this trip, but some things I've never found and some that are in good condition for this spot. My husband did tell me before I left to not even bother coming home if I didn't find a cowshark tooth. But, who are we kidding...we all know who is in charge. Thanks for reading!

    C. carcharias 8.16.23

    From the album: Fin Lover's South Carolina Finds

    It's not perfect but it's rare to find one with this much root in Summerville.

    The luck continues...

    Yesterday I posted the topic where I announced that my father found our first cow shark tooth, well today I couldn't resist temptation, so we went back to the exact spot and sure enough, there it was.along with a decent sized complete great white tooth, one of the signature finds of this creek. I cannot believe my luck, two days, two cow shark teeth.

    Huge Great White

    It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here! But these teeth definitely deserve to be seen! These are from a trip about a year or two ago. We were diving a river in Eastern North Carolina when I came across this Great White Monster! Along with some smaller whites and makos. I have a GoPro video of finding it, and in the murky water my brother passes right over it with his flashlight. Lucky me! It’s by far the largest GW I have, and have ever seen in person. Needless to say I was ecstatic about this entire trip. Maybe one day I’ll have another trip that turns out this productive!

    Baja shark teeth and ?

    I received a handful of shark teeth from an older local gentleman's collection who told me they were from Baja near the Sea of Cortes between Santa Barbara and Lorentz. I assume they are great white teeth, but I'm hoping for a better geological context if possible (age and formation/group ideally, even if just suspected). I've done some research, but haven't turned up much. I saw a reference to the El Cien Fm, but am hoping for some input from others who have far greater knowledge than I do. Along with the teeth came a small chunk of bone that also came from around the same area. Input on what it is or might have come from would also be appreciated. The largest tooth is 2 and 6/16ths in and the smallest is 2 1/16th in. The bone is 3 3/16ths in long and 1 2/16ths in wide.

    Great White Approximate Age

    I would like to know the approximate age of the fossilized Great White teeth pictured in my hand that I have found over the course of the last 9 months at Holden Beach North Carolina. (since August of 2022) These were found in addition to many other fossilized teeth that I have captured in additional pictures found below. Thank You
  14. Hello everybody So this is a question not directly regarding fossils, but I feel this is nevertheless the right place. Is there any information on how big the teeth of modern great white sharks can get? For Megalodon there is a great amount of information regarding the size of the teeth. But for modern great whites I only find information about the size of the whole shark. I would like to make a small display with my 5.64 inch Meg tooth and a modern great white. I was able to get a 2.4 in modern white shark tooth. But I dont know if this is big or average. Thanks for your help
  15. I recently added a few new big teeth to my collection which prompted me to take some pics of the largest teeth I have from 3 species - Carcharodon hastalis, Carcharodon carcharias and Otodus megalodon. One of the recent acquisitions is the 2.7" C. hastalis. It's not in great condition but it's not every day you come across a specimen this size so I had to buy it! While the 2.7" C. hastalis and 2.6" C. carcharodon teeth are approaching maximum size for each species.... the O. megalodon teeth make them look small. A little perspective on just how large that shark got!
  16. I want these to stay pristine as possible. I’ve seen modern teeth age badly. I don’t want this. Please help! special teeth

    Venice Diving Trip 4/16

    Hey guys! I had a phenomenal day diving for teeth last weekend in Venice. I found around 1,500 teeth and some other awesome stuff. Here is a pile of broken/not "high" quality small teeth that i found Here is the pile of teeth that are full and/or super high quality. Here are the tigers that I found. I don't usually find a lot of tiger shark teeth so it was nice finding this many and of this size! Here are all of the Makos that I found. The one in the middle is my biggest Mako at 2.3" and I also found some super pretty smaller ones! Here are all of the Megs that I found. I found my biggest Meg at 4.75" and I couldn't be happier!!! The smaller Megs have a lot of super nice colors and I am super happy that I found them. And the find of the day would be my FIRST GREAT WHITE!! I have been looking for my first GW for over a year now and I finally found it. I think you would have been able to hear me on the surface because of how much I was freaking out when I found it. What I do not have pictured is I found my largest alligator tooth measuring in just under 1" and I also found my first Gar scale (I think thats what it is). I found four pathological teeth. Two of them were bull shark teeth that had double tips. The double tips were very small and I couldn't get a good picture of them. One was a bull shark tooth that had waves in the blade. The last one was a lemon shark that has a twisted blade. If their are any specific teeth you want better pictures of or you have any questions just let me know! This was definitely a trip for the books and I cant wait to get out there again.

    Creek trip 4/7/23

    Went out to a creek yesterday and, wow! It was a great trip, we got three hastalis teeth, two great white, two MONSTER tigers, and what I believe is dolphin tooth, but I'll probably have checked later. Thanks for reading!

    Creek trip 3/19/23

    I had a short trip down to a nearby creek yesterday, and though I was only there for about an hour and a half, it had to be one of my best (creek) trips this year! We retrieved our first complete meg from this creek along with two beautiful great whites.We got some very nice sand tiger teeth. We got a nice little horse tooth. And what gets me most excited is my first piece of ivory.Heres all of the days finds.

    Great White Shark Tooth (Young Juvenile)

    From the album: Sharks

    Carcharodon carcharias (Young Juvenile) Pisco Formation, Departamento de Arequipa, Sitio Sacaco, Peru 2nd? Left Upper Anterior A small tooth from a very young great white (< 2 m / 7 ft total length). Teeth of these very young individuals are narrower than adult teeth, and can possess lateral "cusplets" - features that aid in their piscivorous (fish-dominated) diet.

    Great White Shark Tooth (Neonate)

    From the album: Sharks

    Carcharodon carcharias (Neonate) Pisco Formation, Departamento de Arequipa, Sitio Sacaco, Peru 2nd Left Upper Anterior A small tooth from a young-of-the-year great white (~ 1.5 m / 5 ft total length).

    Great White Shark Tooth (Neonate)

    From the album: Sharks

    Carcharodon carcharias (Neonate) Pisco Formation, Departamento de Arequipa, Sitio Sacaco, Peru 2nd Right Lower Anterior A small tooth from a young-of-the-year great white (~ 1.5 m / 5 ft total length).

    Great White Shark Tooth (Neonate)

    From the album: Sharks

    Carcharodon carcharias (Neonate) Pisco Formation, Departamento de Arequipa, Sitio Sacaco, Peru 3rd Right Upper (Intermediate) A small tooth from a newborn great white shark (~ 1.5 m / 5 ft total length). This is a rare intermediate tooth which is mesially-slanted, and reduced in size relative to adjacent teeth. The smaller size of the 3rd upper anterior is an adaptation unique to the dentitions of Lamniforms, thought to concentrate the bite force in the first two upper anteriors.

    Neonatal Great White Shark Tooth

    Identification Teeth of Carcharodon carcharias may be identified by triangular crowns with no nutrient groove in the root, no lingual dental band ("bourlette"), and irregular triangular serrations on the edges. Teeth of neonatal individuals (newborn/young of the year) possess small lateral "cusplets," with a deep "V" profile made by the root lobes, and are more narrow than adult teeth1. This narrow tooth form with cusplets is suited for the great white's piscivorous (fish-dominated) diet at a young age. Comments This is an exceptional upper right lateral tooth from a newborn or full-term embryo great white ( ~ 1.5 m / 5 ft total length). This tooth was exported from Peru prior to 1990. References 1.
