Mastodon Tooth - Real or Fake?

Recommended Posts

FossilsandScience

This mastodon tooth was apparently found in Florida in 2016. The blackish spots look like they are crystals/minerals that have replaced part of the tooth. Also, on the backside, it appears that there is plaster from when it was wrapped up. I still don’t know if it is real or fake though. Please help! Thanks!

Doesn't really look much like any mastodon tooth I've seen (I've found several).  Look online to compare with real teeth.

I’m pretty sure it has been sliced in half and polished to show the inside. That is why it doesn’t look like other mastodon teeth. Thanks though!

Do you have a photo looking straight down at the crown( the dark side)?

Here is a picture of the black side (I am pretty sure it’s the root)

I also have a mammoth tooth that looks likes it has been cut and polished as well. I got both of the teeth together. This one was also found in Florida 2016. Maybe they were found in a cluster or something like that.

It looks like it came from a baby mammoth

So do you guys think these teeth are real or fake?

They are what's left of real teeth.  Now they are ALTERED teeth.
