Fossil Manatee Teeth

What do you guys think of these manatee teeth? I've looked around online at different pictures and the first one seems a little too perfect.

They're real. In some sites in Florida, they are a very common find.

What about these, do they look real to you?

Yes.

The only really fake fossils you need to be concerned with are usually coming out of China, and Morocco. ;)

Teeth are really not worth faking, with the exception of Megalodon teeth. And then, they are usually part real. 

 

Mammal teeth are not really faked, as far as I know.

As common as manatee teeth are, I still love finding them. Here's some from a trip a little while back:

And yes, what Tim said...Not only would something like this be hard to fake, but they're not worth enough for it to be worth the time.

Agreed, manatee teeth are fairly inexpensive. It wouldn't be worth somebody's time to create fakes for such a low return.
