1 5/16" Snaggletooth Shark Tooth

Besides being a beautiful tooth, this one has the added bonus of a pathology. It has serrations running parallel to the root on the back of the tooth. You can see it quite easily in the second photo. It also has another errant serration on the other edge, but I couldn't get a good photo of it.
Location Berkeley County, South Carolina, USA

Age Oligocene Epoch
Formation Chandler Bridge Formation

You can easily see the pathology right under the left side of the root. It is a line of serrations that runs across the back of the tooth.
