The Broad-Toothed Mako, also known as the Giant Mako, is another common shark tooth we have in our galleries. This genus of mackerel shark lived during the late Oligocene and the Early Pleistocene. This is a pretty common example of the specimens we have. This tooth has a very dark root paired with a gray blade. It does exhibit a slight transition to a lighter brown near the tip of the specimen.
