Fossils from the negev desert in israel and a fossil shark tooth from the east coast

These first two fossils I picked up while hiking mountains in the negev desert in Israel. I think one of them is a sea shell with a barnacle on it. I'm not sure about the other tubular one. The final one is what I believe is some sort of mako.

that last picture is blurry but I think that is a barnacle on the right and I am fairly sure it is a seashell

misread the title and just realized that the shark tooth isnt from Israel. Crossed out until I rewrite my pos

Could be an upper front lateral mako or hastalis tooth. But I'm kinda loose on this because as farfetched as it sounds, it looks so much like a cretoxyrhina tooth, thought you probably found this in a cenozoic zone.

 

Also, i think the tubular thing could be a coprolite? If im seeing the right one. Also, on the first picture theres a tiny fish spine on the bottom of the rock if you didn't notice.

Don't know what fossils come out of the Negev desert but I think that it's a nautiloid with another cross sectioned at the bottom of the rock.
