    teethy critter

    Found this in front of the house on the shore of a saltwater river in Ireland.
    Any idea what it could be ?

    Not a seal, they have canines and then regular sized teeth behind. Only thing I know with irregular shaped teeth like that is a pike

    No, but what goes in upstream ends up downstream. A bone will roll with the flow.

    Others on a German forum had also guessed Pike, would be possible as the river turns to fresh water about 5 miles up and fishing is quite good.
    Longest tooth is 1/2". Seals and Otter seam to have different type of teeth. We have both on the river.
    Another guess one german came up with was that it could have been a mother in law....

    My guess is a large male salmon kelt, from spring. it is clearly a fish, and cock salmon have impressive teeth in autumn and winter. it could be any of the predatory fish, i am no expert, but for sure it is a fish

    Why does salt water rule out it being a pike? Happy to be corrected, but I thought the baltic sea holds some serious pike?

    Pikeperch or Zander are all names bandied about for fish which seem to appear in the markets over there both salt and freshwater.

    Funny enough someone found exact the same Fragment of a slightly larger fish in Norway and posted it on an angling Forum.
    Pretty sure it is monkfish. Very likely as 3km downriver Trawlers land fish including Monk.
    Front top jaw in this picture seems to match very well.
