5 1/4" Sperm Whale tooth

This was the only thing I found on my dives in Georgia. I found it by sticking my arms down in about a foot of mud and feeling around. Its in fantastic condition because my guess is that is has never seen a day of wear. When it was washed from the layer, it probably fell immediately into the mud.
