Stingray Tooth plate

This is a Sting Ray Tooth Plate. Sting Rays are close relatives of Sharks, but they have a whole different routine when it comes to eating. They feast mainly on crabs and shellfish, so instead of ripping and tearing when they eat, they crush their prey against these hard plates. These are usually broken in strips, so I only have a few of these. It has a remarkable texture to the touch.
