Mammal molar

Recommended Posts

I’d like to apologise firstly in case my item shouldn’t be on this site as I doubt it qualifies as a fossil. This tooth was sticking out of the ground in my back garden in Worthing, South East England. I’m hoping someone might be able to help me identify it as I can find nothing on the net that looks similar and my children and I would like to know what may have been lurking in our garden in years gone by.

As shown in the photos, the tooth is 25mm x 12mm x 12mm and has a strange array of serrations and points. The tooth has a hollow back with no root so I’m guessing it’s a milk tooth.
