I don't normally post tiger shark teeth. I have hundreds of them. But this is a very interesting tiger shark tooth from the Miocene of Virginia. It is, I believe, a symphyseal with a pathological bend to the tip. This formation has both Contortus and Aduncus but based upon the tip and serrations, I believe it is contortus.
