HEMIPRISTIS  "Snaggle Tooth" TEETH

While today's snaggletooth shark is not very large or dangerous, there was another species, Hemipristis serra, which lived in the Atlantic Ocean during the Oligocene and Miocene. This shark was considerably larger than its modern day relative, and had much larger teeth. Marks made by the teeth of H. serra are often found on the bones of the manatee leading some scientists to hypothesize that H. serra specialized in preying on these sirenians.

The unusual teeth of Hemipristis serra are highly prized by collectors because they are often found in sediments in Southern Florida that yield extremely colorful fossil shark teeth. Their outstandingly large serrations make it a favorite collectible.
