Several Fossils

Recommended Posts

I've posted photos of 5 fossils which were found in a dredge operation near Houston Texas. I think the large one is a fragment of a mammoth tooth but I really don't know just what the others are. They may all be fragments of teeth but I could use some help to identify them. Thanks for your time and help.

Pic #3 looks like a chunk of mastadon tooth. Pic#4 looks toothy....maybe chunk of bovid tooth. Pic #5 looks like a mammoth tooth plate. Wait for others' opinions.....

Yes, the large one is a mammoth tooth plate.

Could you post an end view of the opposite side of the last specimen (lower-right part)?

Thank you for the pictures.
Hmm... It's not what I've expected to see in my thought. The reticular structure of the end-view is suggesting me a geological origin.

I agree that the last pictures show a geologic and not a fossil.
