5 1/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth

Megs are so cool. The first time I held this in my hand I was in awe. Just like the first time I hold every meg in my hand. The colors on this tooth are exquisite! White, orange, yellow, tan, there are too many to name. The serrations are still fairly sharp which is rare for land teeth. The bourlette is mostly intact, which is really surprising. And the root is even whole. I'm amazed by that because the location where this tooth came from is very acidic. Most teeth are really eaten up. There is a nice sized crack in the back of the root, but it totally doesn't matter. It’s the back :-)
