Hey Gang, I've been messing with some more boxed stuff from awhile ago in my garage. All is Florida material...typical possible Mio-Pliocene, Pleistocene in age. 4 Different specimens for your feedback/consideration: 1) A worn Turtle neural? or possibly a turtle skull element? 1.5cm long. The triangular shape intrigues me. Any chance a genus can be assigned? 2) A bone end. Approximately 3.5cm long. Is it possible to tell from what bone? Any ideas about the possible critter type? Panorama showing different angles.. 3) Very small worm burrow traces or possibly pelecypod burrows? Pebble is only 2 cm long. Traces are approximately 1-2mm wide/long. I was intrigued with the "four leaf clover pattern created by some of them. Has anyone seen this before? 4) Partial mammal tooth. approx 4.5cm tall. I was intrigued by the tree root like patterns on the lower portion of the tooth.... In the 2nd photo the unknown is on the right and before it are 2 smaller similar fragments that were also found. Was thinking juvenile elephant of some type but I defer to you all. Nor am I sure if the 3 fragments are from the same critter or not. Hoping there is something here that can be identified with some certainty. Thanks for the looks. Regards, Chris
Hey Gang, Looking for some more opinions...Not been doing much fossiling lately but I did spend some time looking at some scrap material I picked up a couple years back and had thrown in the possible elephant bits of tooth pile and the wonder if question hit me again. Its about 2.5 cm tall. Could this be something else, maybe even a horse tooth fragment? I did look thru some of the Equiid tooth pictures in Hulberts book and havent seen anything that I thought matched--Cormohipparian and Hipparian and some of the other early horses look like possibilities. Too bad its just a fragment. Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks! Regards, Chris
