Possible partial Ptychodus ???

Recommended Posts

David E.

Found this this morning while going through some of the POC gravel I brought home last weekend.  Whatever it is, it's a first for me from the POC.  Looking online and in the forum, it sort of has the look of Ptychodus mortoni.  Am I close or way off base?  If I'm way off base, give me a break.  I turned my thinker off once the work week ended. :)

 

Thanks in advance

David

Interesting specimen. It appears to be a non-functional tooth from the back of the jaw that was still in the process of forming. The root is the last part to form before the tooth becomes functional.
