Hi all,

 

I’m sure this is an obvious one for some of you experts out there, I just haven’t come across a tooth like this one yet. There is still a bit of matrix on the chewing surface but it’s mostly prepped. I know many of you are out East so I don’t expect a species, but it’d be nice to at least find out the genus or kind of animal so I can research from there. 
 

thank you all as always!

I didn’t know horse teeth could have that third “bump” running down it? I’ll clean it up better and attach a picture next to the horse teeth we’ve already found at the site. It just seems to have a different chewing surface too. Maybe I’m wrong but I’m just surprised since I ruled horse out after looking at the research paper’s horse species illustrations.

The key to this is to notice the word "unerupted" in Harry's image above. ;)

 

 

Cheers.

If you are lucky (and persistent). Browsing TFF each day helps make that more likely. :)
