minnbuckeye posted a topic in Fossil IDItem 1: This has been suggested to be dire wolf or cat. Can we get more specific?
Very humbling as always to fossil hunt with people as enthusiastic, if not more in some ways, this sunday morning/afternoon with @Sacha and @Max-fossils. Great time talking fossils, Florida, etc. as well as finding my favorite commodities. Not very many people on the river today, still wonder why lol.. Not my best day on the Peace by any means, but still very fun & if I had to choose between quality & quantity, I choose the former and got just that. One really seems to be a wolf/bear dog?/ at least coyote premolar or molar in a jaw frag, has to be one of those or a similar species based on size alone. Not many hemi's, megs, few tigers, but I was barely getting any shark teeth in the first quarter of the hunt (using my 0.5" screen) so I'm happy to walk away with that haul lol. Also like the colors on my largest hemi of the day (the lower w/o much root). Also a nice porcupinefish/pufferfish mouthplate pretty early on, along with the carnivore tooth. & my 2nd glyptodon scute ever, also a nice christmas surprise. Saw a few gators on the way back, got quite a workout on the way upstream to the digging spot (would be suprised if nothing is sore tomorrow). Few more unknowns, maybe mammoth ivory, but I might post those later if need be. Just mostly curious about that canine molar/p. molar. Ironic or at least funny bc I just found my first terrestrial carnivore/omnivore tooth on my previous fossil hunt (a much smaller bear molar) Not to steal all the thunder, spoiler alert a sloth claw core was found along w/ some colorful shark teeth.. (not many pics on the river because I know Sacha & Max/his family took a few) P.s. Thanks again Sacha for organizing this hunt & loaning the kayak, & thanks Max for the unexpected goody bag; I'll have to get with you to confirm the correct ID's after I give it my best attempt. +Merry Xmas to all & safe travels!
