Possible fossil tooth

A possible 5-inch tooth?

Kansas City creek fossils

I found these while herping. I noticed the 5 inch in the large rock first. I then found these 2 within a 10 foot radius. There are no serrations in the one that appears to be a tooth. The other looks similar to a vertebrae. Object at left is about 1.5 inch in diameter.

Location: Kansas City, MO Creek bed

Fossil Collector: Heartlandherp

If there are a few Missouri collectors out there, please leave a comment and help us to identify these finds.

    The last two are concretions, not fossils. I would like to see better pics of the first, but it doesn’t appear to be fossil, either.

    Thank you. We suspected that some of these were concretions, but were hoping for further input. Concretions can look very fossil-like at times and can even contain fossils. My Fossil Find posts non-fossils occasionally to help collectors learn the difference. Even so, we are happy that people are out there finding all sorts of stuff. All finds are interesting to us!

    One on left is fossilized sharks tooth. I found one like it yesterday on the shores of Truman Lake.
