3 1/2" Squalodon Incisor

What a tooth! This is a magnificent specimen dug directly from the geologic layer where the previous owner of this tooth lost it 28 million years ago. It is so rare to find one in this fantastic condition. No damage to the enamel or root. If I had just found this one, my day would have been successful, but I found an associated specimen, too.
