Dire Wolf Carnassial Tooth ?

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

  

  I've been holding onto this for a year or so waiting to get it ID'd .. always suspected it was a tapir tooth partial but that was before I stumbled upon a few Dire Wolf carnassials with similar breaks. Is this possibly half of a Dire Wolf Carnassial tooth ?  @Harry Pristis This was found in dredge material in Port Royal, SC.  Pliocene to Pleistocene or so ...

Thanks,

Brett

Upper carnassial (P4) from a canid . . . dire wolf would be a reasonable guess.

 

 

 

Outstanding .... thanks !  It is amazing what can be found in the smorgasbord that is dredge material. 

 

Cheers,

Brett

 

PS. That is one beautiful tooth.
