I picked up this Wild boar (Sus scrofa) jaw section from Florida recently. While it not recognized in the Florida fossil record due to the boar being an introduced species in the past 600 years or so years. This piece has heavy patina, and is mineralized but is too young to be a fossil as it is thought to be a peice that is 400-500 years old. I have Mastodon and cave bear material that are older and far less mineralized. Other than using the rough date of 11k years ago, how else do I explain why a younger less mineralized peice is not a fossil while an older less mineralized peice is a fossil? Thoughts?
