Carcharias cuspidata teeth from the Belgrade formation
These are the last of the teeth that I have been profiling that came in a bag of mixed shark teeth labelled as "Belgrade Quarry, NC". The two teeth shown here were a bit easier to ID for me although I still needed to get confirmation from the Fossil Forum. I recognized these teeth as belonging to a Sand Tiger shark, but the Fossil Forum member "Sixgill Pete" was able to further ID them as
which is very common in the Belgrade formation.

The Belgrade formation is dated to the early Miocene epoch of the Paleogene period.
