5.8cm Mako Shark Tooth Fossil! - Genuine Ancient Fossil

R229.00

EXTINCT MAKO SHARK TEETH FOSSILS

      

As one of the fastest sharks in the ocean, the modern Mako shark can attain burst swimming speeds of up to 50 km/h and can leap clear of the water to heights of up to 6 meters.
These qualities have made this species a sought after sport fish.
The shortfin mako can grow to lengths of 3.9 meters. There is still some uncertainty about its life-span, but it is suspected to reach ages of between 11-23 years.
The following Mako shark teeth fossil is from an extinct ancestor of the modern Mako, and probably grew a lot larger!
