Hi all, I found this concretion when I was fossil hunting in Yaverland, Isle of Wight. It appears to have a tooth and bone fragments in it. I was wondering if anyone could help identify what these fossils may have belonged to. Many thanks in advance!
Collected recently at a marine Cretaceous location near Richmond, QLD, Australia (Toolebuc Formation). 100 million years old. Fossils of both fish (some quite large) and pterosaurs are known from the location. There were also marine reptiles but i think fish or pterosaur are the only two possibilities in this case. I have a number of other definitive fish teeth from this location but they all look somewhat different which is why i am confused with this one. There appears to be a bit of bone attached to the bottom of the tooth, and maybe a little bit to one side of the specimen as well (the large object however i think is a worn belemnite). It measures 18 mm long, but note the tip of the tooth is broken.
