This catalog contains very nice specimens from the Snaggletooth shark, Hemipristis serra. Hemipristis serra or Snaggletooth shark is an extinct species of Weasel shark which evolved during the Oligocene epoch. The Hemipristis shark exists today, but it is smaller than its Miocene - Pliocene cousin. Lee Creek Hemipristis teeth are Miocene - Pliocene age (3-15 million years ago). The Snaggletooth shark teeth are very unique and significantly vary in design depending upon tooth position in the jaw. They are highly sought after by collectors.

It is difficult to find these large and perfect Lee Creek Hemipristis teeth and with no collecting allowed in the mine, large top quality teeth will be rarely seen!
