Tiger Shark Tooth – Galeocerdo cuvier
The Tiger Shark is found in many tropical and temperate waters worldwide. The tiger shark is a solitary, mostly nocturnal hunter. Its name derives from the dark stripes down its body, which resemble a tiger's pattern, but fade as the shark matures.
It is notable for having the widest food spectrum of all sharks, with a range of prey that includes crustaceans, fish, seals, birds, squid, turtles, sea snakes, dolphins, and even other smaller sharks. It also has a reputation as a "garbage eater",consuming a variety of inedible, man-made objects that linger in its stomach. Though apex predators, tiger sharks are sometimes taken by groups of killer whales.
Sold singly, these glossy white teeth are typical for a Tiger Shark - triangular and blade-like with a wide root and tiny serrations. They are quite sharp and will cut paper!
