This tooth was found at my trip to Stratford Hall in Montross, VA on December 2nd. I found it laying out in the open among some pebbles. It’s in great condition, but I had some trouble identifying it as it looks quite different from most of the teeth I have found. The roots look as if someone peelled open a banana, and the crown extends very high up the root. There seem to be some very worn serrations on the tooth as well. After some research, I believe it to most likely be from Carcharhinus brachyurus, or Copper/Bronze Whaler shark, although I’m still not sure. I’d really appreciate some input from more experienced collectors who have a better eye. Thanks, and Hoppe fossil hunting!
