You made quick work of that, Daniel! I believe Rattlesnake Creek material can range between the Miocene and Pleistocene. For your records, this material was collected by @Sacha. I want to say the round crusher tooth is from a pycodont. :)

The shark tooth in the top left is a Physogaleus contortus and the rest are carcharhinids. Your ray teeth are Myliobatis and Aetobatis.

C. hastalis have nutrient pores but don't have nutrient grooves.
