8" Sperm Whale Tooth

I saw this thing just barely hanging on to the layer. Its in fairly good condition and about 90% complete. I have no idea what it is yet, but I hope to find out soon.

Update - 11/2/2003 The Smithsonian guys identified this as a sperm whale tooth at the Cypress Gardens Fossil Show. t$ was hoping it was a tusk, but alas, the hunt continues.
