Fossil Isurus hastalis (Broad Toothed Mako) Shark Tooth

Hands down, this is the best preserved Mako I've found in nearly 20 years of hunting for shark teeth at land sites in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I can't say enough! Its got killer color, its big, the edges are so sharp I literally cut paper with them. And that root is virtually unblemished. Fossilguy was right next to me when I found this gem. Its amazing to find something this well preserved in the reformulated Hawthorne layer. Its so well preserved that it looks like its Chilean.
