It is what sets it apart from my other specimens...intact living chamber with complete tubercles.

What adhesive did you use to glue on those Ptychodus teeth?

On Saturday March 24th I accompanied a UGA paleontology (actually "Historical Geology") class on a field trip to a quarry in Lavona, Alabama.  Here thick pure limestones of the Mississippian Bangor Formation are quarried, but thinner more shaly/sandy layers are dumped to the side. It was this material we were allowed to search.  And, it was here I found this set of teeth, my best find to date of Mississippian shark teeth:

Helodus(?) sp. tooth row (5 teeth)  (Note: I'm not 100% sure about the ID, suggestions are welcome.)

Bangor Formation, Mississippian, Lavona, Alabama.  Collected March 24, 2018.

Specimen is 8.7 mm in longest dimention.

 

note: the darker grey tinted photo is most realistic about natural color.  The others are more tan than the fossil is in person, due to the microscope lights.

Now that's cool.
