Hi all. I didn’t want to create another thread, but I see that there are few comments .. Maybe they don’t look at the far pages anymore? .. BUT here is such a find for us, very important .. I would like to know your opinion, and I decided to create a new thread. We think it's a Basilosaurus Tooth... I understand that this is a very rare find, and I would like to know as much as possible about it.
Was found in the Poltava region, Ukraine.

Triple crowned tooth looks elephantidae
hello, maybe, but I have several teeth of mammoths and horses and so on... and I talked with those who understand ancient fish... Like everyone says that that tooth is a fish.. more like a basilosaurus or a predatory dolphin...At first, I generally thought that this was the tooth of a giant hexagonal shark ... But then they corrected me))). It is very interesting to see such a tooth, but what would it be an Elephant))))... and I agree with the set of a fang .. many people think that this is a bear, maybe a cat ... But we will find it in the same place where the Basilosaurus is possible. so it became possible to group them.

I believe your mystery tooth is a fragment of a cow shark tooth. I see the whale teeth, and assumed this tooth was an associated find, therefore a marine creature, which narrowed the possibilities.
