Hemipristis tooth

The snaggletooth shark is still around today, but are usually under eight feet long. Hemipristis serra, its ancestor, was a more fearsome creature. It had an odd array of teeth in its jaw, with some for spearing/holding prey and some for tearing flesh.

These teeth are from the Oligocene of South Carolina.
