Unknown tooth, possibly whale

Recommended Posts

Found this while sifting in a creek in Summerville SC. Found alongside a wide variety of other fossils (variety of shark teeth, dolphin teeth, horse teeth and other pleistocene bones) so cant pinpoint the time frame. But can't find anything that matches and thinking it may be a whale?

If it's a whale it could be Protocetus which would be a great find. 

Looks like it could be. 

But let's see what others with experience have to say. 

Nice find, whatever! :)

I would guess it is one of the Oligocene toothed whales.

Thank you @old bones! I tried earlier and the files became too big to upload
