Unbelievable Quality Angustidens Mega Shark Tooth

I really can't say enough for this tooth. I found it laying on the surface, but it hadn't been there for long. By the color patterns on the tooth, I could see that the tip and majority of the tooth was poking out of the chandler bridge formation, while the edges and the entire flat side of the tooth were still embedded. When it flipped out, it was deposited exactly where I found it. This tooth has not tumbled down the river like so many other sharks teeth we find. The root is the weakest part with minimal pitting on the lingual side. But everything else is amazing, including the sharp tip and steak knife serrations. The shape of the blade is just cool with a gentle but deadly curvature as the blade tapers to the tip. And those cusps - WOW! I can think of few angustidens I've ever found with cusps this big and perfect.
