Sharktooth Hill find.

Recommended Posts

So I went back to Sharktooth to dig on Saturday. My friend wanted to go, since she didn't go last time, so I took the second trip. My friend found a nice number of shark teeth, on particularly nice Mako-like tooth with complete root, as well as some other nice ones. She did quite well, with a significantly better tooth count than I had. She was working new holes, while I worked a place that had started producing decent teeth a couple of weeks ago, including a cetacean partial tooth. Out of that hole came this interesting specimen.

 

I was thinking allodesmus, but it would seem to be a large one. A nice guy digging out there, named Tim, said that he thought it may be something more like a desmostylus. What say our resident, as well as transient, experts? Many thanks ahead of time.

OK, fossil ID'd nicely by caldigger, as well as a search here on TFF. It is a tooth from allodesmus, which was my first thought. Cheers all.
