Sphenodus longidens

The biggest and the nicest Sphenodus longidens tooth I found in the quarry "Schümel" near Holderbank (Switzerland). Teeth are rare there and you need good eyes to find some..

The tooth is 3.6 cm long and comes from the "Birmenstorf-Member" (about 150 million years old).

That's a great specimen of a rare shark.  It's tough to find one with as much of the root as that one.
