1" Oligocene Benedeni

t$ found this scarce little beauty today. They don't get much bigger than this, though, so I guess little isn't the correct choice of words there. This tooth is in flawless condition - perfect root, blade, cusps, and tip.
Location Charleston County, South Carolina, USA
Species Parotodus benedeni
Age Pliocene Epoch
Formation Chandler Bridge Formation
Category Shark Teeth
Length 1 inches

ID924
Membert$
Date Added11/30/2002

A signature feature of bededeni teeth is that they can rest upright on their massive roots. Here is a great illustration.
