2 3/4" Chubutensis Tooth

I wish I had a camera when I found this tooth. I had pulled my screen into the water after it was half full so I didn't have to reach as far as I shoveled material into it. As each shovel-load went in, the gravel laden sand would "melt" as the water moved around it. The screen was almost full when I went to dump another shovel-load in only to see this tooth, labial side up, sitting fully exposed on top of my screen. It's the largest tooth I've found in New Jersey.
