Hello, I have had this fossil for a few years, but I do not know what it is from. I picked it up on a beach in South Africa on the west coast, the beach is a few kilometres from a fossil park that has many similar fossils. I currently do not have the fossil so if no one can identify it due to the quality of the picture I will try again once I have the fossil. It is about 10-12 cm long.

Can you post a picture looking straight down on the chewing surface of the teeth?

Unfortunately I don't have the fossil now, I will send another picture as soon as I get it. It is a herbivore, that's all I can say.

You must be very careful about collecting in South Africa.    :( 

You need a special permit to collect, and another to export, and all fossils revert back to the state for ownership. 

Taking fossils from there is against the law.  :(

Please try to make yourself aware of the fossil collecting laws of the countries you visit. .

We in no way condone unethical collecting practices.

To be honest, I didn't pick it up. One of our frieinds gave it to me and said that he had found it on that beach. This was more then 6 years ago, I had no idea about the laws of fossil possession. What should I do?

I have not altered or broken the fossil, and I have not exported it.
