¿What kind of camel is it?

Recommended Posts

Hi!!  I found these lower teeth from a possible member of the Camelidae in Coahuila, México (northern Mexico). They could help me if it is from a Llama (Lama, Hemiauchenia) or a camel (Camelops, Megatylopus, Gigantocamelus)133511101_2835109476729499_2477930451166159906_n.thumb.jpg.d30a41e461dbf933c8724370aed6d397.jpg133324493_405335467588632_5173754393321101871_n.thumb.jpg.b86de25470efdc6ef2c40b42db259795.jpg133845431_450122436154662_5730242879053411500_n.thumb.jpg.8ad44c3d625de03f6d736e42feb2d635.jpg

Those teeth look way larger than any camelid teeth we find in Florida. Absolute monsters! Spectacular associated set. If you can get a firm ID on the taxonomy they'd make a great addition to the Fossil Of The Month contest. :P

 

Cheers.

Estoy de acuerdo.

 

Thank you for your comment. Tooth sizes are larger than Camelops. The presence of Dp3 rules out that they are the Camelops or Gigantocamelops genera. It may be a member of the Lamini tribe

Esos dientes parecen mucho más grandes que cualquier diente de camélido que encontremos en Florida. Monstruos absolutos! Espectacular conjunto asociado. Si puede obtener una identificación firme en la taxonomía, serían una gran adición al concurso Fossil Of The Month.:P

 

Salud.

Thank you for your comment!!! The size of the teeth is greater than that of Camelops. Most importantly, the presence of the Dp3 would be within the Lamini tribe.
