Nice tooth found in Richmond, Queensland of Creataceous age in marine sediments.

It has been id as a sharks tooth but is missing the top section.

Any more info on this tooth would be great. Cheers

Looks croc or fish. I’d say definitely not shark. It’s a complete crown with a portion of root.

Definitely not a shark tooth. 

Reptile or fish, likely.

The striations remind me of pliosaur or ichthyosaur. A very nice find
