Is this a shark tooth?


Recommended Posts

I just found this on the beach and honestly thought it was a shark tooth but didn’t realize only fossilized shark teeth are black. Is this a shark tooth? And if so, what kind? (The last picture is the inside and there is a fairly deep groove). Found in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Looks like a piece of oyster shell to me

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

Agree. Umbo section of an oyster.

Thank you both!!! I’d never looked up oyster anatomy until now and didn’t realize that was the way that part looked
