Great White Shark Tooth

Anyone who has seen the movie “Jaws” may be obsessed with the screen version of the Great White shark. Great White sharks are a modern species which is believed to have developed from the Mako shark. Great White sharks are common predators in all the world’s major oceans. They primarily thrive along coastal waters. Great white sharks can be as large as 20 feet in length and weigh as much as 4,000 pounds. Many people enjoy collecting a Great White shark tooth.

Collecting a Great White Shark Tooth

A Great White shark tooth is somewhat difficult to obtain. That is because Great White sharks are protected. As a protected species, Great White shark teeth from modern sharks can only be obtained from sharks that have been captured. Therefore, when you want to find a Great White shark tooth it must often come from an old collection. This makes them rather hard to find. It is interesting to note that when you compare a current Great White shark tooth with one from a fossil predecessor you will find that the teeth are becoming larger. Great White sharks have been known to attack people. When they attack their teeth can do quite a bit of damage. Teeth can come from the upper or lower jaws. The modern Great White shark is also known by their scientific name, Carcharodon Carcharias. Likely the most common teeth found today from this species are transitional teeth. These are the teeth that have common characteristics of both of their ancestors, the Mako shark, and the modern Great White shark. The giant Mako shark is extinct.

Fossilized Shark Teeth

Shark teeth have been collected for many hundreds of years. Shark teeth have been used for making tools and weapons for thousands of years as well as for blades as a forerunner to the modern knife. In the middle ages, shark teeth were thought to be a cure for poison and as such they provided protection. They were thus worn as necklaces to protect the wearer from harm. Today, people still wear shark teeth as symbols of good luck.

You can find many modern and fossilized shark teeth for sale online. When you choose shark teeth, look for size, color, and rarity. Modern shark teeth are white. The whiter the tooth the more desirable it is to modern tooth collectors. The larger sized shark teeth are generally rarer because they came from a larger shark. If you are just starting out a fossil collection you will certainly want to include a Great White tooth. You can find some smaller, more common Great White teeth at very reasonable prices. As you increase your collection you will want to upgrade to a much rarer and more significant Great White tooth. View photos of the tooth before you decide. You can compare a variety of different teeth to choose the one that best fits your collection and your budget. You may want to add several of these teeth to your group.
