Petalodis Shark Tooth Fossil



The pictures shown in this post are of a freshly found shark tooth fossil from the Glen Dean Formation of Grayson County, Kentucky, USA. It appears to be a Petalodis (Owen, 1840) and dates to the Mississippian Period. This genus was named by the English paleontologist Richard Owen (1804-1892).

Thanks to Kenny for the pictures.
