This was dug up in my in laws garden. Does anyone have any idea what sort of sharks tooth it is? Ideas on age? Etc. I have a very amazed and interested 6 year old yet I have no answers to his questions!

Hi,

I am not an expert on sharks teeth, could you give a location on where the garden is which may indicate age depending on whether it was dug up from the strata of the location. It may not help if it has come in from somewhere else with gravel or something. Someone on this forum should be able to give you a clue just from the look of the thing. Nice find.

Hello, very interesting find; looks like a megalodon tooth with pathological deformation...
Whereabouts is that garden?

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

Hi, thanks for replying. It was a garden in Colchester, Essex. It's was also found with some sort of tusk. It's a very large and grand Victorian house and we wondered if it was part of a collection once?
My son is totally crazy about dinosaurs and was convinced it was a megalodon tooth but I didn't believe him! Shame on me!

What a great find!
I'm in Colchester and must admit to being a tad envious.
Keep your son's interest going as long as you can, my boys lost interest when they discovered there were no fossil footballs!
But seriously there are some fossils to be seen in the natural history museum at the bottom of the high street. Ipswich museum also has a large ammount on display
