2 1/6" Narrow-toothed Mako shark tooth

I had all but given up hope on finding anything good at lunch today. I had walked for 45 minutes, and there was nothing great to show for my efforts, when I spied a root poking out of the mud. Yes, the day's redeeming tooth! It’s a bottom tooth with a fantastic root and blade. Look closely at the lingual (display) side photo at the right root lobe. There's this funky design on it. It almost looks like a rune! It's like, coolsville, daddio.
