Love this kind of stuff, thanks for posting.
I’ll show my 5 year old, he’s into it too.
Yeah just sent it to my 8 yo grandson.
When's the best time to go see a dentist?
I collect fossilized sharks teeth, but only keep my own actual finds. I have perhaps a thousand, mostly very small Tiger shark etc. I am fascinated by the color/texture of the fossilized teeth for some reason.
I have seen Megalodon teeth in other collections exceeding 8-10 inches wide and about a foot long or so.
I have found a whale vertebra fossil bigger than my fist in the Chesapeake bay shore area near Calvert Cliffs, where fossils are commonly found due to erosion of the cliffs over time spilling them into the bay, where they often eventually wash up to shore. I have found significant numbers of teeth there.
All this is far short of making me an expert, but heres an opinion about the picture.
First, there is no strong point of reference for size. I can only guess that both are fairly large examples.
I dont know if the question is "are they real?" ( Probable) or is the setting (situ) real.
If the intended implication is that the tooth fossil is stuck in the vertebra fossil from the shark attacking the whale in some distant past time.... I am quite skeptical. Think about the time, breaking down at different rates buried deep in ancient sediment, reforming at different rates from different forms.....
Seems a stretch to me.
Talk about a stabbing pain in your back.....
