Attack of the killer pine cone

As I was hiking at falling Waters State Park, I found a very large pine cone that I had the idea would make a perfect Christmas tree for my motel room. It was about 10 inches tall and quite regular and very beautiful.

So I picked it up. Bad idea! I should have been wearing potholders or something because that son of a gun bit me!

So I tipped it over carefully and took a picture of the underside and that's where I saw the teeth!  You might have to enlarge the picture, but look carefully and you'll see them. They even remind me of sharks' teeth.
