I have here a tooth that a merchant claims is Nimravid, or a false saber-toothed cat, perhaps even Dinictis more precisely. It was found in North Western Nebraska, Oligocene, and is from the Brule Formation. Based on that, does this appear to be credible?
I found this upper canine from a Smilodon for sale online. The number of surface imperfections lead me to believe the tooth is authentic though it could be a particularly well done cast. The seller has a couple other Smilodon fossils both of which seem legitimate. However the fossil is coming from China and I hear falsified fossils are very common in China. I would greatly appreciate another opinion thanks.
I have two teeth shown below. The long skinny ones I have been told are whale teeth and the other I was told is a porpoise tooth. I found images in a book showing it may be a wolf sized dog, a seal or or possible a whale shark. Anyone have any opinions? I have a few of both in a display shot in the last image. Thanks in advanced for the input!
