  1. Thick and curvy

    None of my other many Mako’s look like this... So hooked. Confirming that that’s what it is.
  2. SC thresher tooth ID

    Hi, i have this thresher tooth that was found in the same area as some typical A. grandis teeth from South Carolina. I’m leaning towards grandis for this one based on size, bit it has a symmetrical shape that none of my other grandis teeth have. I am not familiar with grandis anterior teeth, perhaps it that? Thoughts and opinions appreciated. cheers!
  3. This was apparently published in September 2018, but it slipped past me and I’m posting it here in case it slipped past my fellow thresher lovers. The allusive serrated giant thresher has been named Alopias palatasi. Of course if you like Trigonotodus better, it is Trigonotodus palatasi. Now when I add one to my collection in the far far future, I can finally put a good label to it! Here is the description: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/327871783_Kent_Ward_2018_Alopias_palatasi

  5. Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hello all, I found this tooth at Brownie’s Beach last year, is this a fossil common thresher? Thanks!
  6. Can anyone help me identify this tooth? Found at Brownies Beach on the Chesapeake Bay. It looks similar to Makos, but I can't find any pictures of one this curved?
  7. Thrilling Threshers!

    The genus Alopias, commonly known as the Thresher Shark, has been around for millions of years. These sharks use their abnormally long, whip-like caudal fin to stun their prey. This fin can grow to become more than half the length of shark's entire body. It is a strange and fascinating creature, and has been one of my favorite sharks ever since I was a little boy. Today, we fossil hunters can find the fossilized teeth of Thresher Sharks. They are typically rather small, and relatively uncommon. They look really cool in my opinion, and they're among my favorite types of shark teeth that are on the smaller side. So for this thread, SHOW US YOUR THRESHERS! I'll start by posting a neat little ring I made with my best Threshers so far. I'm excited to see what you all have found. Like I said, most of these teeth are pretty small, but I do understand that there's a species of Giant Thresher that can apparently be found at Calvert Cliffs and elsewhere. I've seen a few pictures, but never found one. Let's see what you all got!
  8. Giant thresher ?

    I saw this for sale (super cheap) and it’s labeled “Megalodon”, it looks to me to actually be a Giant Thresher (Alopias/Trigonotodus grandis). It’s about an inch and says was found on the SC coast. What’s your take? Thinking about buying it.
  9. Alopias latidens?

    I found this tooth at brownies, I think alopias latidens, what say y’all? It’s got a worn cusp which is cool if it is a thresher. Around a centimeter, quarter for scale (I know that’s not ideal)
  10. So sorry its been a few months since i posted my finds just been really busy. Here are my finds from Calvert cliffs for the past couple months sorry for the delay in posting my finds and this was my first Giant Thresher ever in 25+ years of collectin on the bay!! Plus a ground shot of one of the megs and some associated whale material it was a good spring but alas now the sand and high water have arrived come on fall!!!!
  11. Shark Tooth Dilemma

    I recieved £70.00 for christmas and i then added that to the money i have earned which now gives me £99.15, which is enough to get this shark tooth I want, but it would mean the majority of my money gone. The shark tooth is of a Alopias grandis. I'm not sure if i should save my money and buy some models, since i collect them, or get this Alopias grandis tooth. I am fascinated by this shark! Its huge, and according to my research, it was the second biggest shark to have ever lived , measuring in at a length of 13 meters and it was big enough to swallow a fully grown man whole!
  12. Dec14th Peace River

    About to travel for the holidays and need to pack. Just a few minutes for this post. Out today, hunting the Peace River. What a GORGEOUS !!! day. Sun shining, warm water, out in nature. None of those fantastic finds this day, bit even an average day on the Peace is pretty good. Lots of small shark teeth, many of them broken, a couple of turtle spurs, glyptodont osteoderms, puffer fish mouth plates all with quality issues. And then these.. .
  13. Giant Thresher

    Where might I find some info on Giant Thresher teeth? Are the uppers and lowers different? I think I have found my first Thresher tooth from the Meherrin River. Craig

  15. Threshers

    From the album Charleston, SC Area

  16. I have been trying to find out some info about the tooth I have. As far as I can tell it's an alopias grandis, and much bigger than others I have seen online. I'm mainly trying to find out what it may be worth and/or where I could sell it.
