I'll post more in a second part... Any comments are greatly appreciated!!!

Kentrcarlson posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceHi All. I found what I think is a canis latrans (coyote) carnassial tooth in the intertidal sand of a spot on the Chesapeake bay. I'm looking to co-author up with anyone who wants to help out with a short review of the tooth and prehistoric coyote distribution in the area. I'd post whatever is written in the forum and research gate. From what I understand, canis latrans has only been reported from one other place in Maryland (Cumberland bone cave). Kent
