Snaggle Tooth
   The Snaggle Tooth Shark is one of those rare species that continues to exist in today's oceans.  
The Jaw is from a large modern Snaggle Tooth that was between 5 and 7 feet long.  Although
relatively small by shark standards they are a very efficient predator with a jaw full of wicked
serrated teeth.  Now, 4 to 6 million years ago imagine a shark at least 3 times that size.  That's
where the teeth in the middle come from.  I found these in Florida on the Peace River where
these teeth are large and plentiful.  I Love to collect "Snags"!!!
