Small teeth, Dorset, ID help.

Recommended Posts

This is very tiny stuff from Durlston Bay, on Dorsets Jurassic coast.

I think that I have some teeth, but are they fish or reptile? 

Can anyone identify the larger plate at the top of the first picture?

All contributions welcome.

The larger item looks to be a fish scale, but wait for others to chime in. 

 

Can we see different angles of the teeth? Especially the top?

Better pictures can help, but for me the first and last picture its a fish scale (Lepidotes) and the second picture its a croc tooh. The other fossils may be fish or croc tooth but the pictures are very blurry.

Lepidotes scale plus some fish teeth and one possible reptile tooth, but like the others say, the pictures are a bit blurry to be certain and we could do with some more angles.

The 2nd picture looks very similar to my two ichthyosaur teeth.

 I can only apologise for the poor photography, here are more blurred images from a second attempt.

There are further pictures of a third tooth which looks to me like a shark, this is from the same location.

It does seem that the one on the left of the most recent pictures is also a fish scale. 

 

Are you you able to take more pictures of the rest? Preferably of the tops, looking down, and vice versa (professionals, please help me with the term as my brain is melting in this UK heatwave!)
