Can you please help identify the attached, I have attached pictures front and back with cm ruler as scale in pic.
The first two sets are I believe hypotodus but I am totally novice so happy to be corrected/informed!
All teeth found in Suffolk at either Felixstowe, Bawdsey, Shotley or Ramsholt

Hello, shark teeth are not my fortress, but if you found all these teeth near to each other, they are probably Miocene in age; the wide species will likely be Cosmopolitodus hastalis ( mako)
and the narrow ones could be Isurus oxyrinchus.(sand tiger)
It takes a real expert to tell, so I hope one of them will react as well.

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hello Claire, the first 2 are shak's teeth, but we don't have any actual Miocene deposits in this country - just a few patches with 'derived' fossils of Micene age.

That is a nice collection of sand shark and other species of sharks.  From my collections, which I have attached, there are similiar specimens.

Hi Claire, I'm not certain that all the others are very worn teeth or wether some are 'pseudofossils' of flint!
