Can you take another picture?  The tooth is fairly blurry when I zoom in on it.

My favorite things about fossil hunting: getting out of my own head, getting into nature and, if I’m lucky, finding some cool souvenirs.

Based on this picture, I would guess Carcharhinus of some sort, but I'd like to see a better picture of the area below.

Thank you.  I'm sticking with worn Carcharhinus.

Concur with @Fin Lover: Carcharhinus.  The weathering makes anything more just guesswork, but ya know what?  I'll bite (pun intended):  with the prominent root bulge,  triangular shape, and mini-burette, it could be an oceanic white tip (C. longimanus).  Alternately, a Caribbean reef shark (C. perezii) upper anterior.  Need serrations and less wear
