Collected a few teefs from Lesnes Abbey Wood in SE London on Monday. Lovely peaceful spot to relax in! I presume they're sand tiger sharks but would like confirmation. Only my second time looking for Tertiary fossils; I'm usually an ammonite woman but I love finding these! Click image for larger version - Name: DSC_0206.jpg, Views: 64, Size: 202.19 KB

Hi
Is it possible to put less of the teeth in one photo and a photo in focus please. Quite difficult when photo is fuzzy.

Thanks
JW

There’s a great little guide to Abbey Wood fossils online. Here’s a link:

It’s my nearest locality. With a good eye and a sieve you can find smaller snark teeth and fish teeth and vertebrae.

This is what I get for taking pics without my glasses on! I'll hunt out the Nikon and get some better pics for you tonight.

Ooh thanks. We tried sieves but I think our meshes weren't the right size so we'll be going back next time I'm down there with better equipment. I did get some very little teeth but no complete ones. It's a lovely little spot!

Thanks 😉
