One maybe tooth, one I have no idea

Recommended Posts

Found at bottom of Eagle Ford / top of Woodbine, the Cenomanian and Turonian age.

 

No idea on the first on microscope at 60x, 2mm at longest part.  I may have to get a better pic.

 

Second and third pics are the same piece at 10x and 60x, scale in second pic is mm, so 10 mm length.  End kind of looks like a tooth, but a jaw would have more than one tooth, so that part makes me think not tooth.   I think it is unique enough looking that someone will know what it is.  If you look at the 10x picture, some of it flaked off, you can kind of see an outline to the right of how long it was.

 

thanks in advance
