3 1/2" Megaldon Shark Tooth

This was the third meg I found today (but only the second that was good enough to make the collection) and it’s a beauty! The root is pristine! I seldom find one in this fantastic of condition. Usually, there is some pitting or little dings, or something, but this root kills! Then, the bourlette is 100% complete. It is rare to find megs with intact bourlette in land teeth here. The enamel is beautiful and orangish grey. The serrations are worn smooth, but they are still visable. The tip is a little worn, too. I SO don't care about the defects, though. I love this tooth. I love the shape of these lower teeth.
