Fossil Mako Shark Tooth

When I got this puppy home, the first thing I did was measure it. I tracked sand and mud all over the house in my impatience. It turned out to be 2 7/8 inches! Almost!!! How could I be disappointed with this tooth, though? Its massive, its complete, its got great color. Most of the makos we find in Summerville had severe root rot or no root at all. This is a centerpiece of the Isurus hastalis collection!
Location Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
Species Isurus hastalis
Age Pliocene Epoch
Formation Hawthorne Formation
Category Shark Teeth
Length 2 7/8 inches

Date Added8/5/2006

I wish I hadn't forgotten my camera today!
The ground photo of this tooth would have been awesome! It looked great in the ground.
