Angustidens Shark Tooth from the Edisto RiverThis was the shark tooth that was the trip maker for me. Even though both cusps are dinged, the tip is impossibly sharp, which always impresses me. The root is really great, too. This angustidens shark tooth was laying flat in a thin gravel layer right on top of the glauconite clay. Because of the preservation, I have no doubt that this tooth washed directly out of that layer in the not to distant past. Big teeth like this don't survive long in the harsh environment of the Edisto.
