I found this fossil at Mappleton on the East Coast. Could it be a fossil tooth or part of one?
(I have posted this question again as the original post does not bseem to hyave registered.)
hi i'm no expert but i go fossiling a bit and in my opinion i think it you could have a piece of worn ammonite or it could be a piece of fossilsed coral but i could be wrong . there is other people on here that might be able to shed more light on your find ohh by the way nice find .
Thanks for your response. You are probably right about worn ammonite. It just seemed the ridges were similar to a small version of a mammoth tooth or a hippo type molar. I have seen from your posts that you search the same areas as myself. Hopefully bump into you sometime.
hi wolvesjeff ,
i can see how you would think that because i would of thought exactly the same and yeah we do seem to collect in the same areas and you never know we might bump into each other someday . another good forum to join is ukfossils.co.uk there a great bunch of people and very helpful with i.d's on your finds . heres a nice little sea urchin i picked up near hornsea . happy fossiling.
I agree with Sarah's idea of an ammonite section.
I can see why you'd think tooth from that first picture but this looks like the jurassic rock from that area and the side photo's give the game away.
Great echinoids though!
