3 7/16 inch Lee Creek Pungo Megalodon Tooth

This Pungo megalodon tooth was definitely my trip maker. I'm glad I brought my camera because the ground shot is great. The preservation on this tooth is unreal! I've been internally conflicted about what to call this, Chubutensis or Megalodon. I found it in the Pungo formation which is where chubs come from and there is the hint of cusps just below the root on each side. But I finally decided that the "cusps" weren't pronounced enough for me to accept them as cusps and I settled on Megalodon.
