Lee Creek Mako Shark Tooth

This Lee Creek Mako shark tooth is tied for the largest of the species that I found on my most recent visit to the PCS mine. I wish I had taken a ground shot, but I found it in a particularly rich deposit of Yorktown formation and I was picking up 3 and 4 teeth at a time. Call me butter, I was on a roll. In my excitement, the camera didn't leave my pack. Don't blame me! What would you do if you saw teeth laying all over the place? Probably just what I did - pick them up!
