North Myrtle Beach tooth?

Recommended Posts

FossilFinder70

Found what appears to be a tooth at North Myrtle Beach.  There appears to be enamel but the tip is missing, and what looks like a root.  Any ideas on what it is?

Welcome to the Forum. Great place to get id's and learn. Nice find. My wife and I will be @ NMB in a week 11/18. Could you tell me about Cherry Grove beach conditions and what's being found? I have never found one of those there. Any info would be appreciated. You can PM me, Thanks and Good Hunting.

Fossilnut, unfortunately I don't know the current conditions at NMB.  This was found during vacation this past summer.  It was found near the inlet at the far end of Cherry Grove.  I've found many various shark teeth at NMB over the years but nothing like this.

looks like Ischyrhiza mira ?

I agree. A broken Ischyrhiza mira. It is a Cretaceous sawfish rostrum tooth. From the PeeDee Formation.

 

@Bronzviking Not a porpoise/dolphin tooth. Also being on the Atlantic coast it could not be a Porpoise. No Porpoises in the Atlantic, fossil or recent.

I'm pretty sure the harbor porpoise exists in the atlantic, but I agree with you and the other members in that it's a sawfish tooth. The root is what gives it away for me.
