Dino dentist required to ID this one

Recommended Posts

This tooth arrived in a box of rocks and minerals from an estate auction. 

 

Any help in identifying it would be most appreciated.

Show a picture directly on the "root" end. At present, this looks more like a water-tumbled rugose coral.

This edge shot does seem to confirm my guess that it is a rugose coral.

Thank you Kane. That is fascinating. It makes sense as there was also a large coral in the box as shown below. 

Thanks again!!
