Tooth found at Holden

Recommended Posts

I know this tooth is not a fossil. I found it at Holden beach. I have shared it on every reddit and facebook forum and page I could. I have been unable to receive any definitive answers. I've had people say it's everything from a dog tooth to a fox, bear, to a sperm whale. If this is not appropriate to share because its not a fossil. I apologize. Please let me know and I'll take it down. I know there are a tremendous amount of well educated and  experienced people on here. So my hopes were this would be a great place for a possible id. Thanks so much.20230824_171746.thumb.jpg.4c23439eb84abf88e8bd4446a43bfc55.jpg20230824_171737.thumb.jpg.0210ca773da8138de887a5d43fb88058.jpg

I'm going to guess...a Fox canine tooth. Our family has vacationed annually over the last 15 plus years at Holden Beach including this past June. Before that Southport and Oak Island.

I have seen a dozen or so red foxes roaming the dunes in front of the houses we've rented. One year we had a den in front of our beach house and saw them daily. Usually at dusk. Nice find!
