GREAT WHITE SHARK MOUNT AND JAWS

RARE!!

GREAT WHITE SHARK HEAD MOUNT

(Carcharodon carcharias)

with a GENUINE GREAT WHITE SHARK JAW

This mounted great white shark head was caught by Clive Green in April of 1975 off the coast of Albany Australia.  The shark weighed 2622 pounds and measured 15' 9".  The actual jaws were used in this mount--the teeth are REAL. The fiberglass head is professionally done, extremely realistic, superb coloration.

This shark also has the distinction of being the last legal great white shark jaw/mount exported from Australia to the U.S. under the Environment Australia Management  Authority.  Copies of the Export/Import CITES permit are included with this purchase.

Mounted on varnished solid wood display piece, weighs 73 pounds.  Measures 34" tall x 30" wide x 35" from wall mount.  Largest primary teeth measure a full 2-1/16" long.

Left & right sides.

s945-1.jpg (131678 bytes) s945-2.jpg (150155 bytes)

Note the proportion to Glenn on the right, friend Bob on the left.  Last views are from the top and bottom.  Notice the excellent wrinkling effect on the lower jaw.

This extraordinary specimen has been in Mr. Green's personal collection since 1975 when this magnificent great white was caught.  Due to Mr. Green's failing health, we acquired this directly from him, making us the only person other than Mr. Green to own this.  We have consulted with several experts in the field to determine the true value of this most rare item. We were advised there were two ways to do this: 

ONE being the removal of the jaw from the mount (taking approximately 6 months and $3500 to accomplish).  Once removed, considering only 3 rows to be salvageable (any others would be a plus), the tooth sizes would be as follows:

Nine 2-1/16", Twelve  2", Six 1-7/8", Nine 1-3/4", Six 1-5/8", Nine 1-1/2"

Eighteen 1-3/8", Six: 1-1/4", Six 1-1/8", Nine 1-1/16", Twelve: 1"

The cumulative retail value of these 102 teeth is $32,490 (check Sharks page 4 for current retail values)

OPTION TWO:  Selling it as a rare one-of-a-kind collectible, leaving it intact, which we have decided to do.  Out of respect to the shark, we felt this was the most honorable thing to do.

News from New Zealand, re: Great White Shark birth 

AUCKLAND (AFP) November 19, 2003 - Two fishermen have delivered shark pups after their net caught and killed a 5.5-metre (18-foot) long great white shark, it was reported. Fishermen Dwayne Havord and Daniel Scott found the dead shark in their net 45 kilometres (28 miles) from downtown Auckland, the New Zealand Herald reported. After they cut it out of the net, Scott said they saw it was pregnant and the pups were moving around inside.

"I've never really birthed a great white before," Scott said. We made an incision and found four pups."  Two were dead but the other two were alive and they swam away. "We felt good about that."

Department of Conservation marine ecologist Clint Duffy said it was a rare catch with only about 10 cases of pregnant great whites being caught.

"I would have loved to have seen it but the fishermen did everything right. I think they felt pretty sad about it."

 

 

GREAT WHITE SHARK JAWS

Before you get your heart set on owning one, keep in mind that the value of the jaw is equal to or greater than the value of the individual teeth in the jaw...and there can be 300-500 teeth in a jaw.  That is why not too many jaws are available for sale, because they have been soaked and the individual teeth sold - and if they ARE for sale, they usually start at $3,000 to $20,000 depending on condition of the teeth & cartilage, and size of the jaw & teeth.

Here is an example of a great white shark jaw we photographed in October 2005 (we did not choose to buy it), this was from a 12 footer:

Enjoy this beautiful shark face photo, thanks to Dawn Elliott in Elkhart, Indiana

Dawn comments: 

"Coming face to face with this creature made realize even more they are not the monsters we have read about. We as humans fear what we do not understand. Instead I saw they are curious, beautiful, powerful and magnificent.  I have less fear but more respect for them. They are a creature truly worthy of our protection.

Thanks for sharing, Dawn!
