Huge Mako - Isurus Desori

In general, I could tell just about everywhere I went today had been cleaned out pretty well. However, while at one of my favorite spots, I saw what looked like a little tip sticking out of the mud in some shallow water. I reached in and pulled out the biggest narrow mako (Isurus Desori) I have ever seen let alone found. This thing is nearly 2 1/2 inches. I also found a decent angus and a hand full of small guys, but I only included a shot of the mako. Enjoy! Thanks for helping me identify the tooth dw! I originally thought it was a Sand Tiger.

That's a beautiful tooth, Congrats! Although it looks a lot like a sand tiger, it's actually from a Mako, Isurus desori. They are directly related to a species of mako that lives today called Isurus oxyrinchus. Desori are much rarer than sand tigers.
