Fossilized litte tooth ID? Green Mill Run NC

Recommended Posts

I found this little tooth in the creek at Green Mill Run in North Carolina over the summer.  The ID on this one has had me stumped.  I was thinking the it could possibly be from a sting ray, but it doesn't really look like any in the pics that I have looked at.  The tooth is right at 1 centimeter in size.  Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Both previous posters are correct, a broken corner of a Hemispristis serra tooth. a.k.a. snaggletooth shark.
