Overview

A High Quality Ultra Rare Trigonotodus serratus shark tooth, an extinct serrated Thresher shark from the copper red site in No. Carolina. An excellent anterior tooth. Very good preservation and condition. This tooth is middle Miocene age, Hertford Co., NC. An ultra rare collectors' tooth. Try finding one of these teeth!  I have seen less than 10 in 30 years.

NC501               SIZE: 1-5/16"

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!
