T-Rex Tooth?!?

Recommended Posts

finderskeepers78

Okay guys! I've been talking my little boys fossil hunting at Post Oak Creek in Sherman since they let out of school for summer. Trying to get them interested in it and FINALLY!!! My 8 year old(least interested) found this. Please tell me this is a t-Rex tooth!! We are all pretty stoked regardless but would love some insight. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.  Unfortunately its not but from a fish called Enchodus.  Trex is not found in your area.  Nice tooth from a nasty looking Cretaceous  fish

Welcome to TFF!

I agree with a fish tooth, but a real nice one.

Greetings from Strasbourg and welcome to TFF. Unfortunately it is not a Trex tooth, it belongs to a prehistoric fish called Enchodus , but I agree it is a nice tooth.

Well darn about t-Rex but still very excited about the find! Thanks for the ID! I love that we've found a place to share and ask! We have a boatload of great finds we need to get opinions on! Thanks again!

Nice tooth! Thanks for posting it. :) 

Regards,

 

You might soften the blow of it not being a T-REX tooth by telling them it is from a Sabertoothed fish. ;)

I'm about to start uploading more. Some of these finds are from the North Sulphur River found in Ladonia. My fav place to go!

The first item is a Squalicorax shark tooth. (Crow Shark)  Not sure on species, however. 

The second is a Steinkern (or cast) of the interior of a gastropod. 

 

Camera phones do better in outdoor lighting. 

Try not to get too close to the item being photographed.  ;)

Thank you! I hope I'm not irritating anyone with my photo overloads. I've got lots more. 

 

That color seems to be the general for all the teeth we've found. Nice dark and rich colors. I googled all I could and never could figure out that one. Glad to have you guys for help.
