DGR Engineering’s Justin Blauwet of Rock Rapids made a once-in-a-lifetime discovery Friday, March 4, 2022 at a construction site on property owned by Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon.

The tooth was near the Sheldon Rec Trail, about 800 Feet
west of the Floyd River.
DGR officials tell us the tooth measures eleven by seven by four inches and weighs 11.2 pounds.
