Baryonyx Tooth?

Recommended Posts

Meatasaurus93

I picked this tooth up recently and wanted to get the forum's input on the ID. It was Identified as Baryonyx. The tooth measures exactly 1cm in length and is from  Wealden, Sussex. I have attached pictures below.

 

Thank you

it's lovely. 

it was identified as Baronyx by whom ?

I'm no expert on Baronyx but it looks like an icthyosaur to me.

Thank you, and I should have worded that better. The seller listed it as Baryonyx.

This image is of a few isolated baryonyx teeth, as for the tooth you have posted in comparison it does not seem to have the vertical serrations.

Hopefully @Troodon or Andy can help.

What you have is the tip of a tooth, its far from complete, so it may be very hard to diagnosis it.   The photos are not the best to really take a good look at the tooth so let ask a few questions.   Are there any vertical striations, facets, flutes visible, I do not see any but they can be on the opposite surface.   Any serrations visible, looking at the lower left, they can be very fine.   If there are no serrations is there a cutting edge think I see one.

 

sent you a pm for more info in seller

Remember seeing this specimen on the website. I have purchased a theropod tooth fragment along with many hybodont teeth and spines from the same seller.

It looks dinosaurian to me. Marine reptiles and crocodilian teeth usually have striations. However, I can't find much information about crocodile teeth from Wealden formation, so I think it is still a possible option.
