HI T,,, UP FOR BID IS THIS (POSITIVE I.D.) AND VERY RARE AND VERY HARD TO UPTAIN "OCEANIC WHITE-TIP SHARK JAW"... THIS JAW CAME FROM A (MALE) SHARK AND THE SHARK WAS (273 cm ) LONG and (230 lbs ) This is not a common bull shark -carcharhinus leucas- but is a "very rare" oceanic white-tip- carcharhinus longimanus These species have very similar jaws when both are adult- however you can distinguish one from another thanks to: tooth count: 13 big teeth in the upper half and 12 big teeth in the lower half for a bull(it may vary but it is very rare indeed) 14 to 15 in the upper half and 14 to 15 in the lower-the range is wider in this species. The best way to distinguish one from another is to look at the lower teeth: the longimanus has roots more perpendicular( teeth look like an inverted T ) to the crown than the leucas which displays more forked roots(teeth look like an inverted Y ) THE MEASUREMENTS OF THIS JAW ARE AS FOLLOWS: 10 5/16 INCHES WIDE OR ( 26.2 CM ) & 8 9/16 INCHES HIGH OR ( 21.7 CM ) ... IT'S VERY HARD TO GET THIS KIND OF JAW IN THE FIRST PLACE,,, AS I'M SURE YOU KNOW!!!
