Crock tooth or bone?

Recommended Posts

Took a quick trip to the Potomac today and grabbed something that I thought was a croc tooth when I saw it, after grabbing it I didn't quite know what it was. All my other croc teeth from the Potomac are round, this is oval. The lack of an actual point makes me wonder if it is just a bone.

 

Any ideas?

Nice teeth finds!

I kind of wondered if it was a piece of rib too Tony...but the other rib bones I have found in this area don't have the hollow end.

The grainy texture says "bone" to me. Not sure what bone...

My thought is the marrow has worn down to make it look hollow.

Definitely not a croc tooth.  I agree that the specimen looks like a piece of bone from the texture.
