1 1/2" Giant Thresher Tooth

I actually found this tooth by following an impulse earlier this week. After lunch one day, I had about 20 minutes until I had to be back at work, so I decided to go check out this new section of a development. Well, they hadn't done any more work there, but they did mow the grass earlier in the week. I thought to myself that it had been a while since I had walked that ditch, so I decided to hop out and give it a go. I'm so glad I did! This this is monstrous! It’s by far the biggest I've ever found and about the third largest I have ever seen. Its in fantastic condition, too. This was a great addition to the collection!
