3" Squalodon Pre-Molar

This is almost as good as it gets when it comes to whale teeth. This is a tooth directly from the original layer where it was lost 28 million years ago, and it is in a remarkable state of preservation. If you look closely, you can see the serrations on it. Near the root end, you can see where the very ends were separated. Just one or two positions back from this in the animal's mouth, the teeth have double roots.
