hello folks, I recently acquired a series of 3 teeth identified by the dealer as belonging to Coelondonta antiquitatis (woolly rhino) from 'Russia' (whatever that means). The teeth are certainly from the rhino family (that's as close as I can personally get), but these particular teeth are huge, t least twice the size of any other woolly rhino (or Teleoceras sp. ) teeth that I have (sample size about 20), or any scaled photos of woolly rhino teeth and jaws with teeth that I've found online (note: lots of photos available online, few with scale, alas). I've include two photos below showing the teeth, and a tape measure for scale. Two additional photos follow that include a woolly rhino jaw with teeth and a separate tooth for comparison to these three It got me wondering if these aren't from a woolly rhino but another member of the family?. In scanning the Asiatic rhino family tree, Elasmotherium sp. (Pleistocene) and Paraceratherium sp. (Oligocene) are the only two that exhibit a notable size difference from ol' Woolly. Unfortunately, there are maddeningly few images of teeth or jaws from these two animals, and nothing with scale that I can find. Thoughts? Any references to recommend? thanks in advance!
Hello again. I have been tinkering with 3d scans again. Using a camel skull and llama body from the idaho virtualization lab via sketchfab, Itried to recreate Syndyoceras, a protoceratid. I am quite happy with the skull and do actually have not much of an idea about the postcranial skeleton. At the moment its a flattened llama minus some neck. I think the feet should be four-toed, but I didn´t find good references for the size and shape. What do you think? Any suggestions to make it more accurate? I added tags for some other herbivore mammals I plan to build over time because I think I cannot add new tags once I started a topic. Thanks, J
