Here are some new pictures of fossil number two from an earlier post. I posted this piece a few days ago. I'm hoping new pictures may help further the identification as either a ceratops horn core or piece of ankylosaur armor. If it's horn core I'm curious, is it possible it's not nose horn core but maybe a side of the face horn from a variety of ceratops? If ankylosaur armor, would this be called a spike or a scute? Thank you again for any and all assistance.
I acquired these two pieces from a close acquaintance. To the best of his recollection, he purchased them at the Tucson gem show some 4 to 5 years ago. The first is said to be teeth from a coryphodon. The second, a ceratopsian horn core, possibly nose horn core. Thank you for any and all assistance.
