2 1/16" Megalodon Shark Tooth

found this tooth just poking out of the layer at the bottom of superpit after a nice rain, and its in fantastic condition. Its nicely serrated, it has the tip, the root is perfect, and the bourlette is all there. It’s a rare occurrence to find a tooth this nicely preserved in a reformulated layer. The coolest thing about this tooth, though is the feeding marks on the back of the tooth.
