Wanted to Confirm this ID

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I found this jaw section in Wyoming's White River fm. last year and was told it was likely from a dog (hesperocyon potentially). I wanted to confirm it with some of the people on the forum as there's not a lot left on it aside from part of a tooth, hopefully someone can affirm my hope that this piece actually belongs to a canid.

yup.  Doggish.  Hhesperocyon based on size, which I am guessing at.

Thanks, I know it's probably difficult to go off one tooth partially intact in the jaw. And sorry I forgot to mention the size of the specimen which is 1.5 cm in length from end to end, the height is about 1.2 cm from  the top of the tooth to the bottom of the jaw.
