For most of us, that is a "day maker" all by its self!

Great job on the tooth hunt. And yes your assessment of the C. hastalis looks to be correct.

Its about 3.8 cm long.

 

And another 2.5 cm long shark tooth:

A city in the north of Belgium. The teeth can be found in the portuary area between the industry zones.

I saw that. That's going to be a long drive from New Jersey. ;)

 

Incidentally, I am watching The Break on Netflix. Very pretty countryside!

Could we see some more pictures of this tooth? Both sides. I am thinking this could be Echinorhinus and not Notorynchus. That would make it even more special.

Echinorhinus is not present in the Miocene of belgium.

It was very difficult because its only 0.9 cm long so I am sorry if the pictures arent that good ...

Would you not be angry that it's not complete ? It Always breaks my heart finding it incomplete.
