Note - Adding 64 Hornby Island deep water shark teeth.   ->   Link to all Hornby Island shark teeth.


The collection that I am offering was assembled 20 years ago. I have always been very interested in the Hornby Island site since I found out about it 20 years ago, but teeth were never available. Now, I am offering an opportunity to purchase shark teeth from 16 rare deep water species (64+ specimens) including 3 different Frill shark species.  Many of these species were newly named in 2019 for the Hornby Island shark teeth since they differed from their European /other counterparts.

An incredible location to build your rare shark tooth collection.
