    $\begingroup$ You can check: wikihow.com/Identify-Shark-Teeth, I would say it might be Cosmopolitodus hastalis. One of the best resources is: fossilguy.com/sites/l_creek/lcrk_col_shark.htm $\endgroup$ – arkaia Jun 22 '18 at 14:59
  • $\begingroup$ it is a shark tooth and you are holding it upsidedown,the pointy part is the top of the tooth. $\endgroup$ – trond hansen Jun 23 '18 at 5:56
  • $\begingroup$ I keep getting told on another site ,that its not a tooth at all,but possibly a fish bone segment shaped like a tooth,thats been tossed in the surf alot. This doesn't make much sense to me. As all the pictures i have found resemble this as an actual tooth. Not to mention,the thickness and coldness to it. I have never saw or even felt a bone like this. Even through numerous google searches. I believe its a tooth as well,but missing its enamel. $\endgroup$ – Stephanie Lucas Jun 23 '18 at 15:23
  • $\begingroup$ My msg continued due to being to long..The back side does have some weird lines,that makes it look like it was stuck onto something for a very long time before it broke off that. Up where the gum area is. Also on the back,there is a horizontal line that i see on many shark teeth with enamel. There is also a vertical line going down both sides. $\endgroup$ – Stephanie Lucas Jun 23 '18 at 15:23
