6 1/4" Sperm Whale Tooth

From out of the edge of a pond we gave up on came this beast - just about the biggest whale tooth I've ever seen. I'm sure there are bigger ones somewhere, but I've never seen one. And the colors on this baby are sweet, too. The cap is a little dinged up; if it wasn't, this tooth would be 6 1/2" long at least!
