Can anyone ID this fossil shark tooth I found on a beach near Rhossili, Wales, UK?

Recommended Posts


Photo attached. The fossil is above my boot at the bottom. I originally took this photo of the dead Northern Gannet and only just looked back on it to see the seemingly huge shark tooth lodged in the rock by my foot. My boots are size 9 for reference if that helps. Thank you!

Welcome to the forum.


I'm not sure what it is but it won't be a shark tooth. From there, that's probably a piece of Carboniferous limestone so it could be chert nodule. Although teeth from shark relatives may occur, they're nothing like that and very much smaller.

Can you crop a higher resolution shot of it?
