Miocene Shark Teeth

Found both of these teeth today while out on the Chesapeake Bay. Would’ve come from the Calvert formation. I’m believe the second tooth is a chunk of a small megalodon based on the serrations and root of it, first tooth I am not sure on. Both teeth are approximately 2 1/3 cm. Thank you!

First one looks like a mako tooth and the second one looks like a meg or g-dub, nice finds!

That’s a less common one right?

Yes, most sources believe it to be the ancestor of I. paucus, while some place it in the genus Anotodus and believe it to be a giant thresher.
