Tooth?

Recommended Posts

I recently went to green mill run and found this strange fossil and I'm not sure what it is. Does anyone know what this is?

So this is totally a guess, but to me it looks like a Belemnite. A belemnite is a cephalopod that looks somewhat like a squid. They were around from the Late Triassic to Late Cretaceous.

Maybe some form of fish tooth?

To me, it does not look like a belemnite since one end of a belemnite is pointy, the other flat.

This piece has both pointy ends.

This is really hard to tell. 

Hopefully others can help.

Regards.

It looks like a tilly bone from a fish. Most likely from the Pliocene Yorktown Formation.

I agree. GMR is a mixed hodgepodge of formations and fossils.
