Horse teeth

Recommended Posts

I have a few horse teeth I’ve found beachcombing, mostly after big storms. I have two that are really wide, I was thinking maybe it could be a camel tooth or something or maybe the other ones aren’t whole? I’ll put a few more pics below because I can only upload 4mb at a time

A smaller tooth I’ve found, I want to say it’s mostly whole but my luck it’s just a broken piece. I don’t think any beds around me have anything past the Pleistocene, unless it’s from the saint johns cutting into the Miocene Hawthorne group and currents bringing them down. But I’ve heard a person say maybe it’s from all the dredging they’ve been doing. It’d be nice to find the source!

The last two! They’re both 2cm wide, the longer one is 5.5cm, the other is 4.5 cm

I am some what confused about how many teeth you have and which photos represent the top and bottom of each tooth. The most important photo is of the chewing surface.  

Your last photo is of a tooth that never erupted through the animal's gum line.  It may also be deciduous .  See this thread for comparison.
