Hi there,

I found this near Amberly, Sussex. Intially I thought it was a tooth, but when I cleaned it up I became unsure. It looks like a hook or claw, but probably is a fish scale! Its 5mm long and is very shiny like ithas a coat of enamel.

Hello Bas, yes it's a fish tooth but can't ID it without laking it off the matrix which you might or might not want to do.

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Thanks for you replies. I'm a bit dubious about prepping any more due to it being so small, but it seems that maybe it is a tooth!!! If I get time (and am brave enough!) I will see if I can get it out to try and get a proper id

Thanks
