Mineral Wells Shark Tooth ?

Finally got a good picture of another find from our Mineral Wells Fossil Park outing.

Looked at other pictures of Petalodus shark teeth, and it has similar features.

 

It looks like a tooth to me....but I don't know.

I would agree with Petalodus. Going off the last picture, it seems like you have most of the root and the actual tooth itself would have been located close to the bottom of the picture. The only thing confusing me is whatever is encasing the very tip of the root - maybe matrix? Nice find! I've been looking for one of these all year with no such luck.
