In the late 1990's when John Fairey and I were making regular treks into Mexico, I spotted this heavily armed selection in a huge colony of Agave gentryi. It made a treacherous groundcover under the old Pinus that colonized the northern slopes at high elevation in the interior mountains of the Sierra Madre Oriental. This selection was made because of the size and arrangement of the teeth which with time, as the leaves fold and die, resemble the death grip of a shark. Jaws gets its name from this habit. We have offered this plant before but never have had enough until now. Jaws is shy to offset so we put it into tissue culture and now we have plenty.
