Texas Lower Cretaceous Shark Tooth ID (Glen Rose Formation)


Recommended Posts

JamieLynn

Found this little blade in the Lower Glen Rose Formation. Sadly, no root, so I am not even sure it's possible to ID. What has me questioning is the odd "extra layer" of growth on the tip.....  Any thoughts?  For a bit of reference I am including pics of the only other shark tooth I've found in the Glen Rose. It is a Protolamna and has distinct striations on the root. So I am pretty sure it's NOT that. 

 

1/2 inch

I'd say the 1st one is a gar tooth. Nice finds

It’s a bony fish tooth - Amiid or less likely a lepisosteiform

Oops forgot to add this - A-E is Amiidae tooth, F-P are Lepisosteiformes
