Fossil ID - South Carolina


Recommended Posts

I spent a couple days this week hunting fossils and sharks teeth around coastal South Carolina. I came across a few fossils that I need help identifying. Any ID or guidance is much appreciated. Images are below.

Hi There,

 

Welcome to the forum !

 

#1 looks like a partial whale tooth .. it is the layers and the visible peeling that make me think that it might be a partial tooth.

#2 is a mammal canine but those are not my strong suit. 

#3 are Neural or Haemal spines of the extinct billfish Aglyptorhynchus sp.

 

For Reference:
