Any idea what kind this may be ? Whale maybe?

It would be helpful to know its dimensions and where it was found; pictures from other angles might be useful too.

Sorry, here is another pic for Tooth or claw? Also with size and it was found in the Westmoreland, Va, Potomac area.

It's a bit banged up, but I have a small bagful like it, from there, that I always thought of as crocodile teeth.

Hi DeeM It looks like a sperm Whale tooth from the size of it and not a crocodile I have a Whale tooth from Westmoreland Co. that is 5 1/2'' long. I also have 25 or so at the 2'' to 3'' size like this one you have. If you could do one more photo of the other side for me.

Nice find anyway. George

The scale is in CM, not inches. Also, I just don't see the typical 'layering' usual to Sperm Whale teeth.

I think it's a mammal canine, but anything beyond that is dubious.
