Gomphotherium tooth?

Recommended Posts

cheney416

Proboscidea tooth from indonesia. I can sure this is proboscidea tooth (even no enamel) but i can't sure what species's tooth. I guess this is Gomphotherium tooth. Is it right?

 

thanks for your help.

This definitely doesn't look like a proboscidean tooth, instead it appears to be the distal portion of a tibia from a large mammal.

Your fossil doesn't present a root and is not covered with the usually present enamel on a tooth.

I agree, the end of a tibia from something big! Still a decent fossil, though. :)

I know quite a lot about modern camels, but next to nothing about fossil ones, i'm afraid. 

No idea.
