Hey everyone!

 

I haven't posted on the forum for a looonggg time, but here I am again ;) Winters in the Netherlands and Belgium suck, and hunting in the freezing cold isn't everything, so I was very happy that the weather is finally getting better, just in my vacation from university! Took the opportunity to go hunting right away, and we certainly didn't regret it ;) (although we didn't expect to find much!) We went hunting twice and I hope we can go a few times more next week :D 

 

Our best find was probably a S. microcephalus, couldn't be happier when I saw it! It's our first of that species :)

We also found a C. escheri, which is a first too :D (love the little cusplets on this tooth)

We came across a N. cepedianus in our sifter too, and although we found some specimens of that species before, this is probably the most whole and perfect of them all!

Will be continued in next post ;)

Of course we found our fair share of other teeth too, with the majority of them being C. hastalis, as usual in Antwerp ;) As you can see, lots of broken teeth too, which is unfortunately the downside of searching ex situ :(

Wow, really nice condition with an intact root!  I wish we could find Somniosus on the East Coast of the United States.

Hi,

 

Angie, please, don't use latin name without its genus name ! It absolutely wants to say nothing and everybody on this forum doesn't know the sharks.

 

This forum has for vocation to allow the culture of each, thus you have to write Somniosus microcephalus, Cosmopolitodus escheri, Notorynchus cepedianus and Carcharodon hastalis (if names didn't change...) ;)

Thanks!! Yes I had to take a second look as well, but the curve is unfortunately too 'small' (if you get what I mean :P) to be an actual P. benedeni, so it's probably just a funny mako tooth  ;)

Thanks! :D That's indeed a shame :( Here they are very rare as well, this is my first after lots and lots of hours of digging and sifting  ;)

I'm sorry, didn't know it was necessary in this context! (I think it has changed to Carcharomodus escheri btw ;)

I would want to specify my previous answer. When you write a message, the first time when you use a latin name you have to write it in full, if you write it other times in the same text you can to put only the initial of the genus because we already know about what you speak ! ;) :)

You've at least got 3 REALLY nice ones there, so it certainly was a good hunt.

Thanks for sharing.  I had to look up Somniosus ... to find it was the Greenland shark and I learned the the average age of 28 female sharks was 228 years.. Impressive!!

A great find

Well I'm not an expert so I'm never completely sure ;), but this one looks just a little off if if I compare the tooth to benedeni's that I found on this spot before :(

That Somniosus microcephalus is a fantastic tooth. Thank you for sharing it with us. I agree with @MarcoSr, wish we could finds them here on the east coast.
