1 3/4" Angustidens shark tooth

Great color, nice serrations, complete root and bourlette. A real beauty! These teeth normally come from the Chandler Bridge, but since the Wando formation is a reformulated layer, it contains fossils that were reworked from the Chandler Bridge. That's why I found this oligocene fossil in a pleistocene layer.

The colors are really that vibrant on this tooth in real life. What a killer!
