5 5/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth

This tooth was lots of things for me today - the last tooth I found, the best one I found today, the biggest one I found today. Its so awesome that my wife said it was awesome, and she normally doesn't care much about teeth. I think I'm gonna call it the prettiest megaldon tooth I've ever found. What a killer! Serrations, perfect root, magnificent coloration and marbling, a small pathology on the blade, big, thick,... I could go on and on, but I'll let the pix speak for themselves.

unbelievable colors!
it looks like a completely different tooth on this side. i won't be putting this tooth away for days!
It was getting dark quickly as I snapped this photo. Luckily, my flash worked and the photo came out nice. I was excited from the first second I saw this one.
