Huge hemipristis?

Recommended Posts

From what I have seen of other hemi teeth, they generally aren't much bigger than 2". But this really looks like those, only much bigger. Any ideas?

This isn't a Hemi. It is either a Chub or a Meg lower lateral, probably a Meg. The age/where it came from will help.

My dad used to pour concrete and found it just before pouring a job in Va. This was when I was small and he has since passed away, so unfortunately that's all the info I have on it. Other than he

supposedly showed it to a friend who worked at the smithsonian who told him to hang onto it because it was rare. (I say supposedly because my brother likes to fabricate stories and exaggerate lol) Doesn't look like a chub to me, but I agree maybe meg..

That's a nice and large tooth, especially for a lower lateral! Some Chubs can have very diminished cusplets, so that's why there's a chance this may be a Chub. But there is definitely a greater chance of this being a Meg, especially because of the total absence of cusplets.

That is an epic meg, the serrations are pretty perfect for the most part.

And this is why everybody should haul a cement mixer with them on hunts.  You know, to better your chances of a great find.

Beautiful tooth and hemis occasionally get to 2 inches plus but that’s the upper end from what I’ve seen. Here’s the largest I’ve found at a shade over 2.
