Crocodile tooth?

Recommended Posts

WhodamanHD

I recently purchased a small lot of Alligator teeth from the Miocene bone valley of Florida online, and three out of the four looked as a Alligator tooth usually looks (two sutures on each side, straight, stubby) but one looks to me like a crocodile tooth, here's some pictures can anyone tell me which one it is? It's partial which muddles an ID a little.

From what I can see from the photos, I would venture to say crocodile; probably Thecachampsa/Gavialosuchus. This thread will hopefully help you narrow it down:

Thank you! I had already looked at that thread, but I wanted confirmation from those who know more then me (such as yourself).

I just read a lot :D

The fact it has multiple 'striations' indicates crocodile :)
