Man it's a tough decision this month, awesome and rare marine reptile teeth and cool sharks, even a fossil I saw first hand out in the field with the entelodont jaw.

Yeah, it is definitely a tough one! Does anyone know how uncommon entelodont jaws are, that would effect my vote!?

Entelodont jaws in the White River formation are pretty rare. Most of the time you will walk away with a few Oreodont skulls, tortoises, and maybe a partial Hyracodon jaw, but rarely any large carnivore material.

That makes it a lot harder!;)
