Fossil Shark Teeth Collection - Million Years Old  

Shark Teeth in the collection are:

  • Otodus Shark
  • Sand Shark
  • Corax Shark

Otodus (ear-shaped tooth) is an extinct genus of Lamniformes, a shark order which includes great whites and magalodon. Otodus skeletons were composed of cartilage, not bone, which accounts for the relatively few fossil skeletal structures found. Having up to 4" teeth and up to 40' in length, these large predators lived in the Paleocene and Miocene periods. Their fossils have been found in African, Asian, European, and North American waters. 

 Sand sharks, also known as sand tiger sharks, grey nurse sharks or ragged tooth sharks, are mackerel sharks of the family Odontaspididae. They are found worldwide in temperate and tropical waters. 

The Squalicorax Pristodontus (Crow Shark / Corax) is an extinct shark that is estimated to have reached up to 7 meters / 22 ft. The Greek word Corax means Raven. These teeth are serrated,

making this large shark a top predator in the ocean. Sharks have lived in the oceans for 350 million years making them one of the most successful species living today.
