Possible tooth from Abbey wood - England

Recommended Posts

Found this in abbey wood with a bunch of fossil shark teeth and shells. Wondering if it was a tooth connected to a bit of bone?

thank you for reading

I am going to say no.   The shape is not really toothish and the preservation is not like what I have seen form Abbey Wood.   Correction... I am talking about mammal teeth.  The extreme roundness of this may make it some sort of fish tooth, but again, the preservation is not toothish, from my limited experience.  Ant UK folks care to comment?

Black pebbles are common in the Oldhaven Formation from Abbey Wood.
