How about a whole bunch of shark teeth for #fossilfriday? 
Sharks produce hundreds or even thousands of teeth in their lifetime. Fossilized shark teeth are among the most common vertebrate fossils. It has been estimated that many sharks produce between 10,000 and 15,000 teeth in their lifetime. In this Museum display in the Hall of Vertebrate Origins, roughly 12,000 fossil bull-shark teeth are shown, dating to Miocene, collected in North Carolina. 

Woah!
