Fossil tooth from a float trip

My family went on a white water tubing trip in Harpers Ferry, WV. The bag fell in the rapids. When we got home the “rock” was in the bag.

Fossil Collector: COHara

Location: Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Editor’s Note: Given that it was a tubing trip, we are glad that you only pulled this tooth out of the bag. We will resort to an emoticon for that statement :) This is half of what is likely a fossil Carcharodon megalodon shark tooth. Accidentally finding its way into your bag is a remarkable bit of luck. ]

    I am not certain this is Megalodon..it looks like there is a cusplet, so I’m thinking carcharocles angustidens or c. Subauriculatus, although the root appears flat like c. Megalodon..hard to tell without seeing in person.
