Hi everyone,

 

I was at the Big Brook Preserve lately, and in amongst the usual batch of oysters, shark teeth, belemnites, and an ammonite fragment I found one piece which I can't quite identify. I initially thought it was a piece of Enchodus jaw, but when I got it into better light I wasn't so sure. It seems to have definite bone texture to it and I am almost certain it's fossilized, but it doesn't quite match with anything I can think of. (Sorry if the pictures aren't great, I tried the best I could with my desk lamp.)

 

Thanks!
