Ptychodus marginalis

Likely Turonian



A massive P. marginalis tooth found in float. This is my largest Ptychodus tooth find to date. Though badly worn and found in float, odds are overwhelmingly in favor of Turonian (as opposed to cenomanian) age for this specimen.

Very rare to find large ones like that. In my bag, that is a 1:200 to 1:500 chance. Nice specimen!

What is the size of this one?

about 3.3 cm at its widest point. I would've loved to see the size of it before weathering took its toll
