Scientific Illustration - fossil shark teeth

shark teeth watercolor
A new watercolor illustration depicting fossilized shark teeth from a variety of different species, including the Megalodon, Snaggletooth, Mako, White, Hammerhead, Sevengill Cow, Sand Tiger, Tiger, Lemon Shark and more. The teeth are painted life size.
Many of these I found beachcombing along the Chesapeake and Calvert Cliffs area. These shark teeth are all from the Miocene era in Maryland and Virginia.
I think i'll probably make a little identification chart to go along with this one.

This illustration was inspired by old scientific illustrations and charts and of course my love of beach combing and fossil hunting.
