I think you're right, but could you give their size ? I Don't know that money's size.

Without a complete root it would be hard to tell, but a photo of reverse side would help. Thanks.

Thank you, so it would make it about 3 centimeters.

Cropped rotated, and brightened.

Are there any serrations present on the second tooth?

Looks similar to a small calvert meg i'd found from the most recent picture. Could be one in my opinion. Just a very damaged root

The thickness and suggestion of a bourlette are meg-like, but unless the serrations are worn off without a trace, it's not.
To me, its morphology resembles what was once called Oxyrhina desorii, but that is too old a species for the site (AFAIK).

Quite possible it was dredged from the river bottom at one time. That would make sense . Thanks for the knowledge

It could just be well worn. Some md megs are like that.

It seems natural smooth and it’s almost round on one side. Quite thicker than the mako teeth .

Have you thought of the possibility of a parotodus benedeni (false mako) ?  That root is cocked off to the side quite a bit and some of the tooth positions are almost vertical.  I only mention it because the enamel of the tooth runs so deep on the back of the tooth.  Here are a few examples of 'makos' from Savannah.  The lowers can be quite robust. Just tossing that out there ... you know to confuse things.

Deer Brett, thanks for the added confusion :) I can’t say what it is with any certainty but it’s way different than the makos I have . Much thicker. Tomorrow’s a very low tide and hopefully I’ll find that elusive meg I’ve been hunting for . Got tones of fossils, horse teeth , whale bones,  verts of all shapes and sizes and tons of teeth. Thanks for the input and I’ll let you know how tomorrow goes . And I’m going to take this tooth to a local pro I guess.

Perfect ! ... I'll be the idiot carrying way too much gear tomorrow (I decided to try bringing the 'big' sifter) and probably freezing ... give your boat horn a hoot as you go by.  I'll be on foot.

 

Cheers,

Brett
