What do you think I got these pics yesterday looks like a Great white baby not a Mako what do you think?



Caught 8-22-11 The DFG guy had to call Biologist for help with ID it was a Great white !! just over 4 ft.


NO CITATION WAS ISSUED YET!! ALL THEY DID WAS CONFIRM (GW) TOOK DOWN FISHERMANS INFO NAME ,NUMBER ETC,,, WHERE IT WAS CAUGHT AND TOOK THE SHARK WITH THEM.

the fins look right for a mako, but the nose seems shorter like a white. If it ends up being a whitey, think that DFG officer will lose his job?

That is 100% a baby Great White.

I can't belive there is a DFG agent standing next to him in that picture.

Teeth look Mako to me... Maybe those are baby teeth so it does not bite the nipple off the bottle it was nursing from. Face in the first pic looks GW.

I'm going with Mako but would have liked to see it in the water.

X2 Mako teeth.

    I actually don't care if it's a mako or a GW (and yes, I know the legality issues between taking the two), there is just a whole lotta dumb in that set of pictures regardless of the species.

    The ONLY shred of hope i can cling to for this guy, is that there was some question about the ID on the pier and dude asked to be photo'ed with DFG so he wouldn't take any shit.

    Baby whites have teeth like makos, 'cuz they're fish-eaters for the first few years. Really does look more like a white than a mako.........

    Baby GW for sure. And the teeth on juvi GW are narrow and pointy as they are fish eaters. When they mature their teeth change to the wide triangular shape GW are known for.

    Love the pic with the DFG officer.
