Peace River/Bone Valley IDs - possible C. Hastalis?

Was digging/sorting through my fossils this morning - had a couple that I hadn’t yet gotten ID’d and wanted to ask about! 
 

So first is this tooth I originally thought was Carcharhinus of some kind, but on a close look it’s got no serrations at all, which is making me wonder if it’s a C. Hastalis?

Second up is… whatever this is. Fish mouth plate of some kind? One side of it the “bubbles” pop out, the other side they’re craters.686D2160-B5BE-48B8-ACB6-2F732964567F.thumb.jpeg.807052cd0b14d0805ca9a4d5152b6f44.jpegCDA8F0EF-D191-4CF6-B6E4-1DF01E1FA0CA.thumb.jpeg.61c21da2eb5119ba0ed81d4ff24cdb4e.jpeg8CC9FFF2-62B7-4A07-99AC-1D0ECEE3A6AC.thumb.jpeg.956358ead72c720eb1bc7ff219d7182e.jpeg

 

And finally, what I originally thought was gator tooth, then thought may have been antler, and I’m now back to thinking tooth but not sure what:

Thanks in advance!

@Shellseeker I know you're often on peace river, so do you have any insight into what the tooth may be?

I think beaver is most likely.

The shark tooth is C hastalis.  Nice finds.

#2 may be gator scute fragment, unless those are pictures of both sides.

Pictures 1 and 2 of #2 are the same side, 3 is of the reverse.
