Hello! Took my children to Walton on the Naze today for the first time, and we came back delighted with these shark teeth finds! Only thing is, my son is very keen to identify these-I think they are largely sand sharks? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

You seem to have a mix of Striatolamna, Odontaspis and Carcharias, they are really difficult to distinguish when worn. A really nice haul, I have been twice to Walton and always came back empty handed.

I agree with andrasz.  Your fossil shark teeth are almost identical to my Paleocene sand shark teeth from Khouribja, Morocco.  You're fortunate to find that many different sand shark teeth in one location.  Good hunting!
