1 1/2" Oligocene Parotodus Tooth

At first, I thought this was a Mako, but it looked so much like a benedeni that I needed a second opinion. I took it to an expert and he confirmed my suspicion that it was a parotodus. On top of that, he said it was the Oligocene variety which is very rare. Finally, its HUGE for that time.
