5 1/2" Whale tooth

I found this back in the glory days of the big ditch - before anyone knew about it and before they started driving the big construction machines down through the middle of it, crushing all the fossils. Yes, I found this immense tooth digging in the bank in one of the best layers I ever saw anywhere. This is a GIANT! It weighs almost half a pound and still retains the classic shape. Even though the enamel has been worn away from the cap (left side of photo), this still remains a fantastic fossil.
