1 15/16" Pathologic Mako Shark Tooth

This is a complete but worn mako tooth - no comparison to the quality of the makos I found at Aurora last week, but this one has something else going for it - a really cool looking pathology. Where the blade meets the enamel on the right side is really twisted up. This normally happens on large teeth like megalodons because the teeth become bunched up in the shark's mouth and the teeth wrinkled up to make room for each other. I don't know what this tooth's story is, but it looks cool.
