Trying to find out anything on this fossil. Thinking maybe Moroccan, and teeth attached to a jaw? I can't find anything close to it.

Not familiar with the fauna .. but I'm gonna toss out some sort of Ratfish.  Just a wild guess.  I think those "teeth" have the look of it ?

 

Cheers,

Brett

I agree it looks like some kind of chimaeroid jaw.

Actually, I think it's a lungfish! The texture and overall appearance looks good to me - very nice!

My thought exactly. 

Lungfish tooth was what popped into my head. 

Good call, Frank!

Thanks Tim! It's good to know I learned at least something about these fish in the last few years. :)
