Hi,

I had a good day at ramsholt yesterday, found several teeth and a few other bits.
I also found this quite large shark tooth, any ID suggestions.

Hi, very interesting! I’ve been going to Ramsholt on and off for years and not found anything quite like that! Best guess would by C. Hastalis but looks quite chunky for that. It looks a bit like a Megalodon tooth, but seems a bit small. Having said that I was lucky enough to find Megalodon tooth tip there a few years ago so I wonder whether it could be that? Preservation looks right. Can we have a photo of the other side please?

Thanks

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the response, I was initially hopefully of a broken meg tip , but after cleaning, I’m sure it’s not. There appears to be a very worn root at the top, as the next pic hopefully shows. It’s just very different to the other teeth I have collected there.
