Trigonotodus serratus, with heavily serrated crowns, is the rarest form of the three Giant Thresher sharks that appeared in the Miocene. These large Thresher sharks include - 

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

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

Exceptionally rare species, and try finding one in any color. The serrated Thresher is the rarest tooth from the Miocene - Pliocene epochs to find! An incredibly challenging tooth to find at this site. A very rare offering for the rare shark tooth collectors!
