Hi everyone, I went to Flag Ponds in Calvert County yesterday & found this interesting needle-like tooth. It is 2.5 cm long. It has a channel up one side that is just barely wide enough to get the edge of my fingernail into. Any idea what it is? I do love finding the oddball fossils! Thanks.

 

Update, I uploaded a different photo. You would never know that this is sitting directly under a 60 watt bulb. Imagine a "crying emoji" sitting at the end of this sentence!!

Higher resolution images with more angles and better lighting? Can't really tell what it is (though  do from first impressions, it doesn't look like any shark tooth I've ever heard of).

Yes probably a fish spine and not a tooth.

A catfish, hey, I will take that. Always nice to add something new to the collection. Thanks!
