Another sharks tooth. Any ideas on this one? Doesn't look to be another Tiger Shark tooth, but I could be mistaken.

Just for some knowledge you can use in the future, upper lateral Hemipristis (snaggletooth sharks are still alive!) teeth are often characterized by a curved blade and very, very large coarse serrations, and as far as I know, the serrations are larger on the concave side. Lower teeth are more spear-like but still retain the large serrations.

I did know that, they look very similar to Sand Sharks, unless they are the same genus.
