    This catalog contains exceptional, extra large teeth from the extinct Narrow-toothed Mako shark, Isurus desori. These teeth are noted for their narrow spike-like crowns which are non-serrate and roots with elongate lobes. These are Oligocene age teeth from the Chlandler Bridge Fm. Note - These teeth are much larger (longer and wider) than the Isurus oxyrinchus found in the Miocene and Pliocene. Isurus desori is most likely the ancestor of Isurus oxyrinchus.
