Serrated Fossil Great White Shark Tooth - 1.78"
This is a fossil great white shark tooth, Carcharodon carcharias. It comes from the Hawthorn Formation in South Carolina which is Miocene in age. The serrations are still sharp along the edge of the blade. 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 damaged like with this specimen.
