Tooth of Bull Shark

Carcharhinus leucas

Description:

This is a tooth of a Bull Shark, found and collected during a dive in Fiji. It was on a Shark's feeding dive, usually, when the Sharks bite/feeds, they may drop some of their teeth. Their teeth will regrow again.

Notes:

Although feeding of wild animals are frowned upon by lots of people, this program of Shark's feeding dives in Fiji has helped the return of many species of Sharks to the waters of Fiji. At one time, there were hardly any sharks to be seen during diving in Fiji. The return of Sharks have an indirect impact on the reef life, the reef are healthier with more reef fishes. The local Fijians also benefited from this program as Marine Fees are collected from Divers and this money are given to the local community in building schools, roads and other infrastructures. Another benefit to the local community is the tourism money from the thousands of Divers that goes there.
