Hey guys,

Here's a partial canine that I got from Cris & Kyle around 2 and a half years ago. It's from the Santa Fe River in Florida, so Pleistocene in age. I've compared it to several canines online, and my best guess right now is spectacled bear (Tremarctos floridanus), but I feel like it could also be a lower canine from a dire wolf (Canis dirus). It doesn't seem cat-like to me. 

What do you think? I can provide more angles if necessary.

Thanks in advance,

Max

Thanks, that's my gut feeling too, so it's good to know I'm not the only one feeling this way :)

I didn't find this one myself... I got it as a gift from Cris & Kyle when I went on a hunt with them. But I do agree that it is a cool find they made!

Still just to have something in your collection like that!!! How do you get in contact with them?

Yeah it's definitely a cool piece! I hunted with them way back in December 2017, under their 'business' Fossil Voyages. I don't know if they still do those guided tours however, as I haven't seen them post much on that Instagram account in a while, but other ways to get in touch with them directly is via YouTube (PaleoCris & WILDKYLE) or on Instagram (paleocris & thewildkyle). Otherwise you can try messaging them here on TFF: @Cris (he made this forum btw!) and @addicted2fossils but both haven't been online on the forum much lately.

While I would personally recommend going on a tour with them if possible as I had a fantastic time, I really don't know if they still do those. If they don't, try finding some other guided fossil tour thing, there's a bunch in Florida, and if you're more interested in the mammal stuff than the shark teeth then I'm sure some will know where to bring you!

Best of luck!
