Recommended Posts

I found this thing 15 years ago in my backyard. I'm not sure what it is and just wondering it might be fossil. It feels like stone but have a strange texture, doesnt look like a regular stone. If you have any idea what is it, please let me know.

Bet it's a fish tooth of some sort.

Looks like a worn mouthplate from a pufferfish maybe, it can crush shells and crustaceans.

It is a Diodontid (burrfish and porcupine fish) tooth plate.
