Claw found in the river while shark tooth hunting

I found this claw while sifting gravels looking for shark teeth in a small creek. Does anybody have any ideas on what this might be? It was found in North Carolina.

It looks like a shark tooth to me as well. I'm not sure about the species though. Still a pretty cool find!

Scapanorhynchus texanus. Cretaceous shark tooth.

The striations seem to continue down onto the root so I'm guessing it is a Scapanorhynchus (Goblin Shark) tooth.

 

Ah, Al Dente beat me to the punch by seconds. ;)

 

 

Cheers.
