Included in this fantastic fossil shark tooth set are SEVEN teeth of both, upper jaw (broader tooth) and lower jaw teeth of the extinct Mako shark called Isurus hastalis. This prehistoric shark is a member of the White Shark family. Teeth from Isurus hastalis look remarkably similar to the modern Great White Shark less the serrations. Little is known about this species and it is classified in the genus Isurus (Mako) due to its characteristic smooth edges. Some consider this shark the "Grandfather of the Great White".
All exceptionally large teeth show naturally lustrous, colorful enamel, and are complete with sharp tips!
