Aurora Megalodon Tooth

With all the success I had during my Aurora trip this weekend, I didn't find a complete Yorktown megalodon until I was walking back to the bus at the end of the day. I was at the top of a mound of Yorktown and Pungo mix, and this tooth was just to the right of a knee high ridge of material. There were some weeds growing near it that hid it from view of the other side of the ridge. Some other collector had walked the other side of the ridge, but didn't hit this side. The person walked with 18 inches of this tooth and didn't see it. It is VERY easy to miss teeth, so I got lucky finding this one!

Its in awesome shape with a sharp tip, complete root, and intact bourlette. It will be a while before I put this one away!
