Some kind of teeth?


Recommended Posts

Found this in Eagle Ford creek bed, thought it was wood at first but think I see remnants of enamel or I wouldn't even take a guess at teeth. Bet this will be an easy one for someone. Thanks for looking!

Interesting. While I have no input on what this may be, I do not believe it is a tooth. I see no evidence, at least to my eyes;  of enamel nor even a worn chewing surface. However I could be wrong.

Sorry for poor picture quality, the white parts are shiny on some places and look like shell, but think that's in the wrong direction.

Couple more pictures if it helps.

Just refreshing this, really would like to get an ID!

In your last photo, notice the purple fabric is in sharper focus than the edge of the object.  The camera is a tiny bit too close to the subject to capture needed details.  Back it off just a bit and crop the new photo as needed.

These are a little clearer, thanks for advise, unfortunately I can't crop them on this phone, or haven't figured it out yet. Not a big techie.

This looks like a bit of Ichtyhodectid fin ray to me. Likely candidates are Xiphactinus or Saurodon.

I suspected a fin fragment...just needed more experienced eyes.  :fistbump:

Oh thank you!  I had thought of a fish fin but thought it was too big.  I must say the depth of knowledge and generosity of which it is shared on here is awe inspiring, y'all should get paid !!

Xiphactinus was a really big fish. :P
