This catalog contains excellent teeth from Carcharocles auriculatus, the first Giant White shark to evolve. C. auriculatus teeth are noted for their triangular crown and very large side cusps which are heavily serrated. These teeth are from the Eocene (38 million years ago).

Please note that all of these C. auriculatus teeth were found in the Santee Limestone Formation from cement quarries around Harleyville, So. Carolina, and exhibit the finest quality preservation.  No "river polish" or artificial shine like you will see on many of the river derived Auriculatus teeth. These teeth show extraordinary preservation and detail with razor sharp serrations! One of the finest locations for Auriculatus teeth specimens in the world.  Are you looking for a great C. auriculatus, please have a look!

I purchased an incredible collection of Auricuatus teeth and I can offer the largest selection of high quality Rics ever. The Auriculatus is 10 times more rare than the Angustidens which is 100 times more rare than the Megalodon. Get them while they last!!!  Unfortunately, there is no access to the mines for collecting today. 

Note - The Harleyville area Auriculatus are a late stage of Auriculatus development that are also referred to as Carcharocles sokolovi.

Note - all teeth sizes are slant height unless otherwise noted.
