Giant Beaver Molar

A friend of mine came across a unique find the other day - a petrified beaver skull. Back in the Pleistocene, beavers used to be as big as bears. Unfortunately, the skull crumbled, but he did manage to get the teeth. He kept the incisors (which are huge, by the way), but he was kind enough to hook me up with a molar. Thanks John!
