Fossil 1 - Myrick

by Catherine Gussler
(Savannah, GA USA)

This was found in southeastern Georgia, USA. The striations are confusing on the exterior with bands of dark and light. We think it is a tooth. Small inset in picture is cross-section. Pen for scale.

I don't know what this is. I don't think it is a tooth. It is tooth shaped but it is very large for a tooth, even a large t-rex tooth which would be shaped differently. Sorry I can't be more help on this.
