Galeocerdo tooth

These teeth are from the same species of tiger shark found today - Galeocerdo cuvier. They were collected from the beaches around Venice, Florida and are between 15 and 20 million years old. They are big sharks, usually around 4m long, but the biggest recorded example was 7.4m - bigger than the average Great White.
