Dolphin tooth perhaps?

by Fiona
(Central America)



Found on a beach in Panama, Central America. Pretty sure it is a sea mammal tooth, looks and feels like ivory and there is the spongy fossilised top. I found one dolphin fossil tooth online which seemed similar. Thanks!

It is a small coral, whether fossil or recent I cannot say from the photograph.

This could be a tooth. I cannot say anything about it and be sure.
