Pathologic Tiger Shark Tooth

This tooth was broken while it was growing in the shark's mouth and then it kept growing after the injury. The result is multiple new tips extending from the rounded side of the tooth. One primary "tip" is most visible from the flat side of the tooth, while the others are only visible from the front.
