RARE Eremotherium Giant Sloth Tooth

Finding much more than this in Florida is a rare occasion. Sloth teeth, like all edentates, lack true enamel making them softer and more susceptible to breaking before and during the fossilization process. Also much of the toot is hollow so that is almost always missing. This is a heavily mineralized specimen -- weighing just over 1/2 pound. Nice color, too.
