Modern Tiger Shark Tooth   Colleton County, South Carolina, USA - Galeocerdo cuvier

Big Cuvier Vert with a prize inside   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Galeocerdo cuvier
Found just a bit of this big 'n exposed while crawling around the Yorktown. Thought it was a tuna vert at first, given the size. Was very pleased when I removed enough silt to reveal what it was-- a whopper of a tiger shark vert. To make it even better, when I turned it over, stuck to the dirt on the bottom was a small I. hastalis/xiphodon tooth. Definitely made my day....

1 1/2" Tiger Shark Tooth   Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA - Galeocerdo cuvier
This is without a doubt the biggest tiger shark tooth I've ever seen. I never expected to find it at Lafarge, either! Its from a marine pleistocene layer consisting of sand and pebbles that I never even knew existed before today. t$ found a big tiger today, too. The excavators must have recently hit a layer that isn't evenly distributed over the property. That might explain why we've never found big tigers there before....
