    A bit long in the tooth... need help with ID.

    Does anyone have any idea what this tooth belonged to? Bonus points for what ever the mollusk attached to it is as well Thanks!

    Ok, I guess the shell was a spiny oyster.

    It's kind of neat looking, but why do you think it's a tooth? Doesn't look like one from here.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    I guess it was just the general shape of it. After reading your reply, I looked at it again. You are correct, it isn't a tooth, it's some kind of shell. Thanks!

    What could be attached to the shell is what is left over from a burrowing organisms hole. The hole fills with sediment that cements together. When surrounding mud that turns into rock erodes, it leaves behind the cemented burrow mold. I have collected these when hunting shark teeth in Bakersfield, California at Shark tooth Hill.
