1 7/16" Squalodon Molar

This is the last of three squalodon molars I found in the same dive, and its by far the best of the three. I found it barely hanging onto the Chandler Bridge formation where it fossilized. The serrations are awesome to behold, and the detail in the enamel is unbelievably detailed. Even the fragile tips of the root lobes are intact, a feature rarely seen in teeth disarticulated from the skull.
