Can anyone ID these fossil teeth?

The only suggestions I've had so far is that they may be crocodile or pterodactyl teeth. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

    Dear Pete,

    Thank you for your enquiry. Please can you tell us where you collected these teeth and identify which specimens are imaged in different orientations.

     

    Apologies for the delay in response due to illness.

    Kind regards,

    Fiona

    Image 5 looks like the phragmocone from a belemnite - and that is where my knowledge ends, over to Fiona :)

    • Hi again - image 5 does look different- we could do with another photograph of that from a different orientation. Thank you bombuslucorum.

        Hi Pete,

         

        I forwarded the link to one of our specialist who says :

         

        "I can't see any pterosaur teeth there, but there is an odd tooth that someone has said looks like a belemnite phragmocone. This one is weird but I think it is a tooth.

        The second one is very polished- is that from Potton? The fossils there are reworked from older strata.

        The last one looks ichthyosaur-ish or pliosaur-ish to me"......

         

        The best thing to do would be to visit  or post them in to the Angela Marmont Centre, Natural History Museum, London, however, we need to know the locality - where they came from. The specialist concludes with:

         

        "Cool- I look forward to hearing more about this nice collection!".

         

        Hope you can visit us so that we can see your interesting collection.

        Very best wishes,

        Fiona

    I'd agree with the suggestion of croc for all except 5.
