Fossil Shark Tooth

Recommended Posts

I found a lot of fossil teeth at a place known for its Miocene fossils. Could I have some help identifying this tooth? Thank you all for helping a novice! It is serrated by the way.

Welcome to the Forum. :) 

I took the liberty of editing the photo. Cropped and lightened.

Carcharhinus tooth. The problem about them is that each species can be identical to each others teeth, so its hard. Like gavialboy said, it could be a bull shark (which is a species of Carcharhinus), but several other candidates also can be it, like whalers or grey sharks. What I find weird about the tooth is that the crown seems a bit elongated.
