Dear Where on Earth,
Thank you for sending the shark jaw from my Grandma.  I won't let my dog eat this one, but he was trying to when we were taking the pictures.  I really like the shark jaw and will keep it in a good spot.

WEIRD SHARK PHOTO GALLERY

mvc-625s.jpg (68726 bytes)

The goblin (or elfin) shark (Scapanorhynchus, also known as Mitsukurina owstoni) is truly a living fossil!  Thought to be extinct for 90 million years, it was rediscovered in 1898.  This has won our UGLIEST SHARK CONTEST, hands down, don't you think?

 

MVC-365S.jpg (37686 bytes)

These sand tiger sharks photographed on the Aliwal Shoal off the coast of Africa are an orthodontist's nightmare!  They can't even close their mouths if they wanted to!  You can see why they're also called "Raggies", short for spotted ragged-tooth shark.  Whatta mug!

MVC-902S.jpg (38018 bytes)

This tiger shark jaw is HUGE - this is at the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum in Myrtle Beach - there is no measurement on the sign - but I'm glad there's no shark attached to it anymore!

mvc-628s.jpg (52157 bytes) MVC-640S.jpg (38344 bytes) MVC-002S.jpg (39680 bytes)

The Cookie Cutter Shark (Isistius brasiliensis) wins the prize for the most MOXIE.  This gutsy shark is one of the smallest in the shark world, yet he takes cookie-cutter looking plugs of flesh from giant whales (second photo) and have even left similar marks on SUBMARINES!  Not to mention serious damage to fiber optic cables laid on the sea floor - YUM!

Last photo of teeth, compliments of Joanne Panek-Dubrock from the North Carolina Fossil Club, exhibiting at the Aurora Fossil Festival, N.C. at the Aurora Fossil Museum

He's a close relative of the KITEFIN SHARK (look above), great cutters he's got there!

mvc-693s.jpg (68718 bytes)

This is an abnormally long tail (5 feet high) of a Thresher Shark caught by Zane Grey, reported by his son Loren Grey in the book "Shark - The Killer of the Deep" that I thought was quite interesting.  He described the shark as having bulbous eyes on top of its head that rotated like an iguana's eyes so it could see its own tail, and had been seen beating a small whale to death with its tail while biting it at the same time.

This Megamouth Shark (Megachasma pelagios) is only one of two specimens ever found, one off Hawaii and one off California.  The teeth are very small and needle-like.  It feeds on plankton.  This shark won the BIG MOUTH contest.  Then in November 2002 I got this photo of a megamouth tooth, which is quite rare ..
