Bawdsey Trip - Tooth ID??

Recommended Posts

TomWhite

Headed down to Bawdsey in Suffolk for a few hours. The beach has built up loads covering up the best big teeth grounds, still managed to find a few. Got the Striatolamia macrotas from the bottom of the shingle ridge and also a fish vertebra? (Can anyone confirm).

The rest of the teeth were all from the red crag layer. Also found a possible cow shark tooth which i have never found! (Please say it is!!!) And some other fossil, i have found a lot of these previously but never as large. Apologies i cant take any better photos due to using my phone!

If anyone can help with identifying these that would be marvellous! 

 

Thanks for reading guys and girls!

This looks like a possible fish scale?

I'm not certain but I think your ids are correct.

Looks like a fish vert.

And it looks like a partial cow shark tooth to me. 

And I agree with Tim re the possible fish scales.

Nice finds.:)

Thanks, i have found smaller pieces before but never one of this size. Seems to be a lot jumbled up in this chunk!

I'm guessing shark or ray vertebra.
