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!
