This catalog contains exceptional teeth from an early Giant White shark - Carcharocles chubutensis, an immediate ancestor of C. megaolodon. These teeth are noted for their well defined triangular crown and small side cusps with well defined serrations. The Chubutensis lived from the early to mid-Miocene age (20 million years ago). 

Peru produces some of the finest Chubutensis teeth known, and top quality teeth are quite rare! Even the good quality Chub teeth with minor repair are very difficult to locate with the banning of exportation. This is an incredible selection of Chubutensis teeth. These teeth are very difficult to locate and from my old inventory!
