Hello, I hope that I'm doing this right. I was recently rock hunting in Kansas City, Mo and found these teeth. They were on the surface in a limestone formation on the side of a hill. I'm just wondering if someone could tell me something about them?

Welcome!

I don't think they're teeth. :( More like a suggestive rock.

Welcome to TFF!

They are not teeth. They look like pieces of limestone that is suggestively shaped.

Keep looking.

They are definitely not limestone, they were covered with limestone. I buffed it off. They are so hard that sandpaper wont even scratch them. They are definitely a fossil of some kind.

Sadly, they are suggestively shaped rocks.

I also agree with everyone else- non fossil and suggestive shape.

To be sure you could put a drop of vinegar on it (or stick it in vinegar but it may cause discolouration). If it fizzes, its most likely limestone.

I am very familiar with limestone, and they are not limestone. I have hunted Indian artifacts all of my life. These things are harder than flint. They are not suggestively shaped limestone, I guarantee it. These also came from the same place.

If they are not limestone and where in limestone then they are most likely chert nodules. Whatever they are they are not teeth.
