    • I had found this tooth for sale while looking in a antique mall in Virginia. The tooth appears to be in good condition, which is apparent due to the serrations still being present. And thanks to some members from this forum, it’s likely that the tooth was a tooth that would be set and ready to take a place of another tooth if it ever fell off. The tooth is also likely to have belonged to a younger animal, juvenile or sub adult is probably where the age is somewhere around.
