Kem Kem - Camarasaurus tooth shaped (likely fish fossil)

Recommended Posts

This thing has me stumped.

 

The only thing the shape reminds me of, is a tooth from Camarasaurus, but nothing about the texture screams "this is a tooth" to me.

 

I would have guessed some kind of claw, but it appears to have something akin to a root??

@LordTrilobite, I'm sure I saw that you deal with Kem Kem material quite a bit? Any thoughts?

Doesn't look like a Sauropod tooth to me. Looks like a type of scale. I think I've seen this shape before but I can't exactly remember. But my guess would be a type of fish scale or possibly a fish tooth plate.

Ah, thanks for that LordTrilobite! Fish fossil didn't even enter into my head on this one, due to the size.

 

The seller has it marked as a "Pterosaur claw", but it looked way off the mark for that.
