The fossils were found at the Xoc cavern by the photographer, Kay Nicte Vilchis Zapata, and a cave expert by Erick Sosa-Rodriguez.

In an interview with the local media Side, she said, as she was looking at the wall of the cave, and saw something strange. “We were looking at the wall, and all of a sudden, I saw a little something, I got closer and closer, and I could see that it was a tooth that was in the first one and it was a sawshark,” Zapata explained.

Sawshark, in general, inhabit temperate and tropical waters of the western Atlantic (Florida, Bahamas, Cuba, to the south-west of the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific ocean, according to Shark Savers. Shortfin mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus), may maintain a swim speed of 20 km / h, with short bursts of up to 50 km / h), according to the Marine Bio.

Isurus oxyrinchus, is also to be found in warm and temperate waters, and the young makos “are very common in southern California during the summer months.”

Fossilized teeth of the megalodon, which have been swept aside by its successor, the great white, have been found. Some of them have been found in North Carolina, including the one discovered in April and, in mid-July.

In 2018, an Australian, a teacher, stumbled upon the find of a lifetime when he discovered a set of fossil, a 3-inch tooth from an extinct giant shark, which is known as the large-ridged, narrow-toothed predator Carcharocles angustidens.
