Fossil Tiger Shark Teeth

Prehistoric tiger sharks, also known as Galeocerdo aduncus, were a species of shark that lived from the Oligocene to the late Miocene epochs, around 23 to 5.3 million years ago. They were smaller than modern tiger sharks, measuring up to 3 meters (10 feet) in length. However, they were still apex predators and played an important role in the marine ecosystem. Prehistoric tiger sharks had a similar body shape to modern tiger sharks, but with a more slender snout and smaller teeth. Their teeth were also less serrated, suggesting that they may have fed on a wider variety of prey than modern tiger sharks, which primarily eat fish and sea turtles.
