Need help identifying teeth

Recommended Posts

I'm not even sure what these are, but I was kayaking near Cherry Point and found these while walking on a sandbar. They seemed really unique so I tried to look them up and haven't found anything.

Wow that’s crazy.

No idea but not a fossil.

+1 on the “Wow that’s crazy.”

 

Fossil or not, I would like to know what it is myself.  It looks unique enough that someone is bound to have come across one before.  If the sand comes off easily and they clean up some, without falling apart, new pics of them cleaned up would make it easier. 

 

First thing I thought of was that the bottom one almost resembles some kind of weird bird foot, in my mind.

 

Do they feel really light?  Or are they heavier that you think they should be by looking at them.

 

Do they feel like rock, bone, or plastic?   

 

Are there just 2 pieces?

Pretty bizarre looking. The last pic on the left looks like a leg from a crustacean, possibly a crab.

Grass carp pharyngeal teeth. 

Modern, not fossil.  :)

I figured they were modern, but I couldn't find much on people identifying animals by teeth other than here, so I really appreciate your help.

Thank you so much.

Isn't this fish an Eastern Asian species?

Yes, originally.

However, they were imported here and are now an invasive species in many parts of the country . :(
