  • Alopias grandis -  Giant Thresher with non-serrate teeth 
  • Trigonotodus alteri - Giant Thresher with non-serrate teeth which have side cusps
  • Alopias palatasi - Giant Thresher with serrated teeth

Alopias grandis teeth finds are generally believed to be limited to Maryland, Virginia, No. Carolina, and So. Carolina. Supposedly, there is also a Sharktooth Hill example or two.

These were large sharks and believed to be the size of a Great White shark.

Exceptionally rare species, and try finding one in any color. The Giant Thresher is a rare tooth from the Miocene epoch to find! An incredibly challenging tooth to find at this site. 

These Giant Alopias shark teeth are very rare and are quite difficult to locate.

One of the eight species of unique shark species of Viginia teeth from an old collection.
