​Biology of Sharks and Rays - Information and Identification

Dinosaur & Sharks Teeth:  A shark tooth is one of the numerous teeth of a shark. A shark tooth contains resistant calcium phosphate materials.[1] Sharks continually shed their teeth; some Carcharhiniformes shed approximately 35,000 teeth in a lifetime, as well as replace them by producing thousands of more.[2] There are four basic types of shark teeth: dense flattened, needle-like, pointed lower with triangular upper, and non-functional. The type of tooth that a shark has depends on its diet and feeding habits. Fossilized teeth may also be found on the  "Fossil" page" on this site
