1 5/8" Great White Shark Tooth

Here's a lucky find! Rarely do nice great whites come along, but here is a pristine specimen with fabulous coloration! It has a cool story, too. You may notice that it is not in the trip picture for the day. This is because it fell out of my pocket and I didn't find it until several days later when I was at a gas station cleaning all the trash out of my truck. I had one of my co-workers with me and I was telling him about toothin. I told him I would bring in a tooth to show him, and there, on the floor amongst the Diet Pepsi cans and Taco Bell refuse, was this beauty! He was hooked on site, and right after that, he started asking me about places he could take his kids to do it. I drove him by the old creek, showed him where to look, and prided myself on hooking someone else on the hobby.
