Peace River, Partial Jaw with Teeth

Bone Daddy

These pics aren't the best. I forgot to put a scale object in the photo. I hurriedly decided to shoot these because the setting sun was providing some good lighting. This piece is small, about 1.5 inches in overall length. There is an alligator scute in the background for rough approx. size comparison.

 

I am not sure if this is fossilized, but the teeth look familiar to me. Is this a juvenile of something larger?

 

Thanks!

I would say Sus scrofa (m2-p4).
