2.2" Fossil Great White Shark Tooth - South Carolina
This is a fossil great white shark tooth, Carcharodon carcharias. It comes from the Hawthorn Formation in South Carolina which is Miocene in age. These fossil great white teeth are much rarer than the Megalodon teeth which they are associated with. The roots on these teeth are much more delicate than many other types of fossil shark teeth, so they are almost always eroded like this specimen. The serrations, while mainly worn away, are still visible and add to overall look of the tooth.
