An incredibly sized, Top Quality Mako shark tooth (Isurus xiphodon) from Chile. This MONSTER sized Mako tooth measures 2-7/8" - a huge lower jaw PRINCIPAL ANTERIOR tooth. . Highest quality enamel! Excellent color. Incredible "gum line". This was a big shark. Exceptional preservation - note the preserved nutrient hole on the root. Absolutely no repair or restoration. Please note that this tooth was initially thought to be a GW transition tooth, but there is insuffucuent serration development. A few serrations on one side near the base of the crown. I also added a couple of new close up photos and they do not support GW transition tooth classification. A rare BIG Chilean Mako shark tooth. You don't see these big, top quality Mako teeth any more. No repair or restoration. Authenticity guaranteed.
