Found this fossil of the coast of Norfolk on one of the eroding coastlines. My insticnt tells me it looks like part of a large annomite but i also have a feeeling it could be a mammoths tooth?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
You have found the partial outer whorle of a very big ammonite.
It is probably called Paracoraniceras sp (Lower Jurassic - Lower Lias, 200myo) originally from the Redcar area and moved to your area during the last ice age by the glaciers.
We find a lot of similar material on the Holderness coast, a bit further north of you.
Lovely thanks very much for the confirmation
Hope it's ok to post a few images of specimens like yours that make great garden orniments.
