Terrible surf and tides today on the Potomac at Stratford Hall, but I picked up this odd chunk of what appears to be enamel... portion of a tooth? But not marine as far as I have experience. Anyone have any ideas? Pictures aren’t great tonight, I’ll post more in the daylight. Thanks!
Hey Gang, I've been messing with some more boxed stuff from awhile ago in my garage. All is Florida material...typical possible Mio-Pliocene, Pleistocene in age. 4 Different specimens for your feedback/consideration: 1) A worn Turtle neural? or possibly a turtle skull element? 1.5cm long. The triangular shape intrigues me. Any chance a genus can be assigned? 2) A bone end. Approximately 3.5cm long. Is it possible to tell from what bone? Any ideas about the possible critter type? Panorama showing different angles.. 3) Very small worm burrow traces or possibly pelecypod burrows? Pebble is only 2 cm long. Traces are approximately 1-2mm wide/long. I was intrigued with the "four leaf clover pattern created by some of them. Has anyone seen this before? 4) Partial mammal tooth. approx 4.5cm tall. I was intrigued by the tree root like patterns on the lower portion of the tooth.... In the 2nd photo the unknown is on the right and before it are 2 smaller similar fragments that were also found. Was thinking juvenile elephant of some type but I defer to you all. Nor am I sure if the 3 fragments are from the same critter or not. Hoping there is something here that can be identified with some certainty. Thanks for the looks. Regards, Chris
