Trace fossil teeth …. ?

A calcareous specimen measuring 8 cm in length was presented to the museum for identification by Mr Greg Handley of East London. The specimen which was found by his son Connor Handley in the Nahoon Point Nature Reserve has at least 10 clear impressions of a tooth-like nature. Photographs of the find have been sent to the Albany Museum for further clarity on how the impressions were made and what made them.

Another small piece of the palaeo puzzle from Nahoon, home to the world’s oldest human trace fossil footprints.
