Posterior Megalodon Shark Tooth

When I hunt fossils, I pick up everything I find. I remember finding this tooth - I thought it was just a root with a busted off blade. I casually threw it in my bone / tooth fragment bag and went merrily on my way collecting teeth. When I got home I cleaned it up and noticed that the enamel was intact, and this was an extreme posterior megalodon tooth. A very cool find! I am really glad I picked it up!
