3 1/2" Angustidens Shark Tooth Fossil

One of the best Carcharocles angustidens teeth I've ever found is this 3 1/2 inch beauty. We've found 5 teeth over 4 inches in this one stretch of the river, and angustidens teeth that large are rare. This is a lateral tooth, too, so the shark that used to own this tooth probably had giant 4 1/2 inch anterior teeth. Imagine if the animal died there? I'm drooling on my keyboard just thinking about the wicked angustidens that could still be there!
