This catalog contains beautiful teeth from the hook-tooth "White" (Mako) shark - Carcharodon (Isurus) planus. These teeth are noted for their wide, hooked crown and more rounded roots. This Baja, Mexico site is one of the few sites that produces exceptional C. planus teeth outside of Sharktooth Hill. We are offering a high quality C. planus tooth. This is a great collector's tooth. These teeth are from a very old collection of rare Baja, Mexico shark teeth.

Note - The Florida Museum has a good & short discussion regarding the origin and use of the Carcharodon genus for species that were previously named Isurus (Mako). There link follows.
