Could you help identify these fossils.
The fossil was found washed up at Saltburn by the Sea shingle beach in the North East of England earlier this year.
I know there is two bivalve shells, but I have been told the tooth could be from a icthyosaur or possibly a fish.
Could anyone give me an identification and a time frame for the fossils.
Need a bit closer and not too blurry image Inta, but if it is a Icthyosaur tooth from that area it will be Lower Jurassic about 200myo.
I have blown the image up and I think it it is a tooth but has been subject to the beach system and has suffered some water rolling and wear.
Don't think it is from a fish.
Thanks for the help.
The rock was opened to reveal the tooth by a very helpful man at a fossil shop in Charmouth.
Have now had the tooth identified by the NHM, it is an icthyosaur tooth.
Once again thanks for looking and the help, much appreciated.
Well done Inta! now go find the rest of them.
