Cow Shark Tooth

IMO, This is my wife's best find this weekend. Funny story... When we first got into the pit, I was looking for teeth to show my wife the type of deposits to look in to find teeth. I spotted a little outcropping of Yorktown with a bull shark tooth on a little pedestal. I called her over and told her to look in front of me. She bends down, looks for a minute, and then picks up this tooth. She didn't see the one I saw, but found the awesome one I missed!
