Bone Valley Shark Tooth Fossil

Angustidens shark tooth from the Bone Valley Formation of Florida.

My find of the day last Friday. About 5% of the blade was showing above ground, and I pulled it out by that.  The circle in the picture is where the remains of the cusp are located.

    Sorry to tell you this, but that is not an angustiden tooth. IF that is indeed a cusp, then your tooth is a C. chubutensis….angustidens went extinct in the Oligocene, and is not represented in Fla.
    If I had to guess, Id say that it is a megalodon with a chip in the blade where you would expect a cusp to be.
