Gigantic 3 1/16" Yorktown Mako Shark Tooth

When I found this tooth I definitely did a victory dance, which is dancing happily like a fool in circles around the tooth. I could tell it had to be at least 3 inches when I picked it up. The 2 15/16 inch mako I found in Summerville a few years ago had to step down from the throne. Now I have a new king to add to my mako collection that has earned his rightful place at 3 1/16 inches.
