I thought these were horse teeth, but after some poking around I'm thinking they're bison teeth. Please, help with identification and geological era. I'm starting with photos of the two that look like bone, in what stage I don't know, but do have three more (one large and two small) that I believe to be completely fossilized teeth from the same animal. All were found in Bucks County, Carversville exactly, in or near a creek bed at the bottom of a ridge of cliffs, which, we've been told, is a very special geological location where finds are not typical of the surrounding area. Because I could not wait to get another photo with a point of reference for size, I must include my best estimation from memory: the larger piece is approximately 2" long and 1/2-3/4" deep and not quite 1 1/2" wide The smaller of the two pieces can be referenced by the larger, but is about the size of my index finger from the first knuckle to top. I'll wait to post the photos of the possible complete fossilized pieces, I'm sure I will need to be more diligent including all needed info in the photos I choose to post. For now, I hope this is enough, do tell!
Okay folks, Thank you so much for your responses/help! I have attached 3 new pictures, one with the chewing surface and hope they are clear/bright enough to help you identify them better. Could you also give me some idea of how old they are? I have read that the shark teeth we collect can be anywhere between 3M and 23M years old...are these from a similar period of time? You guys rock (fossil joke-kinda) and I appreciate all of your comments. Let me know if these new photos help! Mark I live on the barrier island outside of Jacksonville, FL and love to find fossilized shark teeth, but I found this fossilzed jaw fragment with two teeth imbedded in it on the same beach in Ponte Vedra. I have no idea what they are from, so I'm hoping someone here can help? I've attached three views & hope they help. I'm excited to find out! Mark
