2-1/2" Parotodus Benedeni

A new premier piece in my collection. I found this tooth lying on a pedestal after the shower, labial side up (just like looking into the shark's mouth without the threat of being consumed). This specimen is robust and the enamel is razor sharp on the edges and tip.

The lingual side of this fine specimen. A robust root and wicked shape are impressive!
The labial side is just as sharp!
