This is unusual for the areas I search. Usually Equus and other teeth being float fossils are one at a time singular finds. This trip I found a piece of matrix with two Equus teeth embedded in it with an outline of a missing third tooth in the clump. One upper and one lower tooth are embedded in the matrix very close to each other....unusual. The matrix itself is a puzzle....the color and texture are unusual for the area....stood out like a sore thumb. Matrix reminds me of the type you'd find cemented around bottles and garbage in a century old landfill. I always enjoy finding horse teeth....and this time its the unusual matrix as well as the number of teeth together that makes the find all that more enjoyable.
Hi, I found this small fossilized bone, about 6 months ago in southern Galveston Island. I haven’t been able to ID what animal it came from. The geology of the area is from the Late Pleistocene (100,000-11000 years ago) Beaumont formation. I have found fossilized turtle shell fragments, and fossilized crab claws in the same location. It measures just about 1 cm in length and width. Any idea as to what is is? Front side Back side
