MAKO (LONGFIN) SHARK JAW

longfinmakophoto.jpg (7156 bytes)

(Isurus paucus)

THIS JAW IS NOW A RARITY

A distinction was never made between shortfin and longfin until 1966; these are less common than the shortfin mako; how to tell the difference between shortfin & longfin mako jaws?  Easiest ID is that there is NO GAP between the 3rd & 4th upper teeth counting from the center.

#SJ240-1  INCREDIBLY RARE SIZE

THIS SIZE OF LONGFIN MAKO SHARK JAW, MAY BE A RECORD, largest we have EVER seen

27" wide x 17-3/4" tall

2-3/8" primary top teeth, 2-1/4" primary bottom teeth, not just long, they are WIDE teeth.  Gorgeous jaw!  According to Dr. Hubbell, this came from a 13-14 footer.  It is among the largest ever; caught in the waters off the coast of Taiwan.

MAKO (SHORTFIN) SHARK JAWS

(Isurus Oxyrinchus)

(how to tell the difference between shortfin & longfin mako jaws?  Easiest ID is that there is a GAP between the 3rd & 4th upper teeth counting from the center)

  MVC-113S.jpg (38119 bytes)

If this doesn't look like the jaws in the Aliens movie with Sigourney Weaver...Geez, I scared MYSELF when I saw the photo I just took.  ALL the rows of teeth are active like fish hooks to hold ANYTHING.  What a great jaw for anyone that's into sharks!

Upper and lower jaw shown

shortfin-lower.jpg (141533 bytes)

Shortfin "sharp nose" Mako is closely related to the Longfin Mako.
