Bone or tooth?

Recommended Posts

We found this in the surf at Casey Key today. About 3" long and very heavy. Any ideas what it might be?

Well it's not a tooth as it doesn't have enamel. I'm sure others will agree. 

 

It it might be bone. Can we have a photo of the ends?

Could you take another photo in better lighting? Also dont worry about getting so close, just make sure the end is in focus.

Not a tooth.

 

It looks like a worned rib from a dugong.
