That IS a beauty!  Thresher shark teeth aren't all that common as fossils!

I LOVE threshers:wub:

I have never had the pleasure of seeing a posterior A. Grandis (though some would call it Trigonotodus grandis). Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic finds can come in small packages!!! I , like many others,  love threshers and mostly have to be satisfied with the smaller variety. :D Thanks for sharing a beautiful tooth...
