Seal or porpoise tooth?

Recommended Posts

Found this at Calvert Cliffs. My first thought was a porpoise tooth, but is it possibly a seal? Thanks!

Yep. That root is worn rather weird.

I would like to see better, more in focus and not so dark pictures of this tooth. From all angles. Also can you give good size dimensions of the tooth. I am not so sure this is dolphin.

That is some really funky wear on that root! :)

The shape of the root is informative... but not in this case! I'm not sure. I can't tell; does it have cutting edges (carinae)?
