    Dominik Niehaus has contributed specimen mFeM 68439 to myFOSSIL!

    • Some kind of Sand Tiger shark or ancestor but without knowing the age and with the wear, it is impossible to further identify.

    • Hi, @Dominik-Niehaus, do you have any more information about this fossil, like where it was found?

    • Sorry, I’m new here and the interface isn’t very intuitive, I hadn’t even realized this was uploaded. I did geotag it, it was found in the Oligocene shallow marine sediments at the Steigerberg near Eckelsheim. According to the report I wrote at the time, it’s most likely a Carcharias.

    • Thank you so much, @Dominik-Niehaus. Are you using the mobile app or the desktop site?

    • Desktop site. I’m sure it’ll be fine if I keep trying, but my geoscience is rusty and it was all a bit much when I first tried

    • @dominik-niehaus, thank you for letting me know. Feel free to reach out if you have any geology questions. One of the other things that I think would improve the quality of this specimen would be to add a photo of the other side. To do this, just click the tab that says images, and you should be able to upload more photos. @Bill-Heim, would you agree with this ID?

    • Probably Carcharias cuspidata author – (Agassiz)
