My fish biology class took a weekend trip into the Gulf of Mexio, we put out a gill net to catch some specimens

2 hours later when we came back the first thing in the net was a 5ft blak tip shark!!!!

We took it back for "researh" ( got some good steaks) and i ened up with the jaws.

How do I preserve these without taking them to a taxidermist?

I don't know details but its bone, won't it just dry up like any other bone?

Not bone, sharks have no bone except for their calcified teeth, they are composed entirerly of cartilage.
