Recommended Posts

Is this cave lion jaw? There is restoration to the tip of the canine, the rest of fossil is natural. Is this rare in this condition?

Do you have a picture looking straight down on the tooth surface?  Multiple pictures from different perspectives always helps.

As @caldigger says, a photo of the chewing surface is useful.

On the photos below i show you my tooth of cave lion to compare yours with it. The problem is that the molars of the cave hyena looks very much about it.

So, a close-up of the different teeth you have on that jaw would also be very useful.

 

Cheers, Sophie.

And also a scale of both the jaw and each tooth in long, height and large.
