shark teeth

I think this is a shark due to the multiple rows of teeth but that's all I got they are really small maybe belong to a juvenile the fossil is about 1.5 inches

Not shark, mammal. Only 2 teeth in part of the bone.

Possibly deer.

I agree. Where'd you find it? That may help for exact measurements

I agree WhodamanHD.  Looks like oreodont to me as well.  The name "oreodont" translates to "mountain tooth".  (Actually has nothing to do with cookies)

These teeth show that sharp mountain like structure well.

Should probably say white river group instead of chadron FM, I just think Chadron when I see oreodont. Oligocene in age, Merycoidodon is he most commonly sold one in my bit of experience.

yeah, oreodont upper molars.  It looks like White River formation is most likely so.
