Fossil Thresher Shark Teeth

The Alopias grandis shark tooth is a fossilized tooth from the extinct shark Alopias grandis, also known as the giant thresher shark. It is the largest known species of thresher shark, and it lived during the Miocene epoch, about 23 to 5 million years ago. Alopias grandis shark teeth are characterized by their large size, smooth cutting edges, and strongly recurved crown. The teeth can reach lengths of up to 2 inches.
The giant thresher shark was a predator of fish and squid. It is thought to have used its long tail to stun its prey before attacking it with its teeth. Alopias grandis shark teeth are found in many parts of the world, but they are especially common in North America, Europe, and Asia. They are also found in South Carolina, where they are a popular souvenir.

If you find an Alopias grandis shark tooth, it is a rarer fossil find.
