This shark is commonly called the Giant White or sometimes the Broad White. It's the largest shark in the White shark lineage. The teeth can reach sizes over 3" and are on average slightly larger than Great White teeth. This shark is thought to have diverged from C. hastalis in either the late Miocene or the early Pliocene. It became extinct at the end of the Pliocene with other large sharks. The Giant White had a nearly global distribution as fossil teeth are found in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. This is a popular tooth to look for in the Yorktown formation at Aurora, NC.
