Hi all,

Now that I have this great resource for getting things identified, I've been through some of the more interesting fossils we've found from Abbeywood.  Would anyone be able to help with telling me what these could be please?

D - I often find shark teeth in the beds but this one is different looking to any other I've found:

I realise I may be asking a lot 🙂 and really appreciate any info on the above.

Many thanks!

The flat bony plates with dimples are partial croc scutes. (B+C)

A looks like a piece of shell.
B is a piece of Acipencer (a fish like a sturgeon) scute, very similar to crocodile in appearance
C may be a fish scale
D s a shark tooth, Striatolamna macrotus
E looks like another piece of shell

There is a very good pdf guide to the fossils of Abbey Wood, a copy can be found at the MFMS website,   pdf downloads, fossils of abbey wood by David Ward
