What is the size? Isn’t Big Brook Navesink formation? If so, it can’t be a mako but rather Cretalamna sp. (Cretalamna cf. borealis ?)

The Jersey Devil

It is  actually a Cretalamna sp. with the cusplets broken off. The shark teeth that occur there by natural means are Late Cretaceous (Wenonah and Navesink formations).
