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

All of these C. auriculatus teeth were found in the Upper Eocene Ocala Limestone Formation exposed in the Suwanee River, Suwanee County, Florida. These Auriculatus teeth exhibit high quality preservation and can be very colorful.  A little "river polish" adds to the attractiveness of these Auriculatus teeth. One of my favorite locations for Auriculatus teeth specimens in the world.
