Looks like maybe a Barracuda, hard to tell without someting to scale it by
Moray Eel? Or something similar? Just a guess.
100%. Not Barracudda. Eel was my guess. Never seen teeth tipped with black like these
Maybe a snapper dentary bone (Lutjanus sp).
It's freaking awesome, whatever it is.
are the teeth curved backwards or is it the pic? the black tips are nice, thinking eel
I am betting it came from a cleaned fish off a boat or nearby area that has boats. Typically the head and remains are tossed overboard. Wander by the local marinas where the fishermen hang out and troll the boats that take people out. Ask the Captains and boat crews if it looks familiar. Teeth are not right for a moray and the jaw is too short and heavy for one.
It is the left dentary from a snapper (Lutjanus spp.)
