MAKO (LONGFIN) SHARK JAW

longfinmakophoto.jpg (7156 bytes)

(Isurus paucus)

THIS JAW IS NOW A RARITY

A distinction was never made between shortfin and longfin until 1966; these are less common than the shortfin mako; how to tell the difference between shortfin & longfin mako jaws?  Easiest ID is that there is NO GAP between the 3rd & 4th upper teeth counting from the center.

MVC-113S.jpg (38119 bytes)

If this doesn't look like the jaws in the Aliens movie with Sigourney Weaver...Geez, I scared MYSELF when I saw the photo I just took.  ALL the rows of teeth are active like fish hooks to hold ANYTHING.  What a great jaw for anyone that's into sharks!
