Small teeth id

Recommended Posts

Found these worn little teeth in one of my boxes from a past trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Cretaceous, Pliocene and Pleistocene aged material can be found here. I doubt a species can be pinned down, but are they fish teeth? Tooth 3 looks maybe croc to me but I’m not sure. Any ideas welcome!

Tooth 1 is 7mm long

Tooth 2 is 10mm long

Tooth 3 is 12mm long

Just a suggestion. You took pics of each tooth from different views and angles. If it was me, I would have kept the pics from each tooth together.  Instead you have them scattered which makes viewing a little confusing. I know that they are numbered but confusing (atleast for me) nonetheless. @Jazfossilator

Thanks, I think I’ve made it a bit less confusing now.

That's better!:) All 3 teeth look like possible croc teeth, but they are so worn I can't say for sure. Maybe someone with more experience with croc teeth can confirm or deny. I am pretty confident on #3 though.

Difficult to tell because of the wear but I was thinking 2 and 3 are mosasaur teeth based on the elliptical shape of the base.

Oooh that would be nice! Are there any other angles or pictures that might make it easier to tell?
