3 1/4" Squalodon Whale tooth

I almost passed this beauty right by. I saw it out of the corner of my mask and I thought it was a bone fragment. There are lots of bones on the bottom in this spot, so I disregarded it and went on. Then it hit me that it could have been a whale tooth, so I swam back over. Sure enough, it was. And its in great shape, too.
