Fossil mammal tooth on a shell for scale.

Beach combing can lead to some surprising results.

Beach collected fossil tooth.

Another view of the fossil tooth.

Fossil Collector: Emily33

Location: Miramar beach, Portugal

[Editor's Note: This is a mammal tooth and our first impression is that this looks like a tapir tooth. Having said that, we're not especially knowledgeable Ice Age Portugal. Can someone else add the this? Please leave a comment.]
