A Sphenodus nitidus front fang tooth together with a small brachiopod and the belemnite rostrum Hibolites semisulcatus. The tooth measures 14mm. From the Kimmeridgian divisum zone in the upper Danube valley.

Very cool set !
Wow ! Another great fossil
Beautiful! Even the belemnite furrow is in the right place.
Couldn't be better

That's one sweet fossil.
That's a beautiful association piece. Sphenodus is an uncommon tooth that tends to be found as an isolated crown or with very little root. It's rare to find one in matrix (I have an incomplete one from La Voulte, France) with a another level of rarity for a tooth as nice as that one. With the well-preserved brachiopod and belemnite it's almost unbelievable. You should post in in Gery's association thread.
This is my third from this site, but the first with an intact root.
Looks like a FOTM candidate, but which one - invert or vert?
That's a difficult question That's why I'm trying my luck with this in Steinkern this time.

It sure is out of the ordinary.
