Me, too! 

The Desmostylus teeth that our benefactor Doren sent me sparked a whole new interest in extinct mammals, I've been learning a lot. 

Wonderful stuff.

Life's good! :D

Nice! 

I have a tooth from a white-tailed deer, but your pieces are lovely, like the piece with the gnaw marks! :)

I have never seen one of those! That is one odd looking critter. Pretty cool though. I can see how it might be a favorite out of sheer peculiarity and uniqueness.

I have never been into many of the mammal fossils, but some of the stuff from wooly rhino, giant sloth, mammoth and mastodons and from a creature like that do have some appeal.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Kim for your kind words. What I like about mammal fossil is that they are really recognisable to a point but then they can be physically astonishingly different. The inspiration for my mammal collection came from a book my sister gave to me when I was a child. Published in 1979 - Prehistoric Animals and Plants by Josef Benes illustrated by Zdenek Burain. Even thought the  illustrations aren't accurate to the science of modern standards but a great book. 

Another  fun looking creature is the Thylacosmilus. Thylacosmilus was a saber-toothed marsupial which lived approximately 10 million to 2 million years ago during the Late Miocene through the Late Pliocene Period in the woodlands of South America.
