Baby Croc Tooth?

Recommended Posts

GroundViewer

Hi, I recently found what I believe to be a baby croc tooth at green mill run north Carolina. I was hoping someone might be able to confirm my suspicions?

Confirmation is over my head, but I agree with you.

It looks more like a fish tooth.

I agree with fish tooth.  Unless the specimen is the broken off very top of a much larger croc tooth crown, the specimen would be hollow at the base if croc.

I was thinking the apparent lack of enamel would mean it was well worn. If it looks like a fish tooth as is there probably is no need to craft one from a croc tooth though.

I will try to add a better picture of the top. It is not exactly hallow but there is a slight dimple.

From what I've seen of crocodilian teeth from anywhere, you don't see enamel worn off so cleanly all around it.  You would see the tooth more beat-up than that with maybe a spot of enamel showing somewhere or it would be more chipped all around.  It looks like a fish tooth to me as well.
