I found this today on the Brazos River in SE Texas. At first I thought it was a chunk of a vertebra. After washing some mud off I was surprised to see teeth with roots extending to the broken ends of a mandible. Based on the shape of the teeth I think it is a xenarthran, but which one???
megaholic posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceI found this diving in the Peace River, Polk County Florida in 2013. After identification by Dr. Hulbert, he mentioned that they did not have an example of that bone in the state collection, and that they would love to have it if I ever wanted to donate it. After five years of consideration, I realized last week that it would be put to much better use there than in my living room. I mailed it last week. Glyptotherium sp.
