Sharks tooth, or turtle shell

Recommended Posts

Pelagos

I found this interesting piece on a beach that was very popular for finding shark's teeth. The specimen was found on the gulf side of Florida and is approximately 2.5 cm in length. There appears to be rings on the lip of the fossil and the "tooth" area appears to be made in flat symetrical layers in two separate stacks. 

 

A passerby on the beach described it as a tooth that had been completely worn down while to me it more resembles a bit of a turtles shell.

 

any guestimates are appreciated!

It is neither. 

This is a very worn fish mouth plate.  ;) 

Something similar to a porcupine fish
