Big Brook Finds!

Life Finds A Way

Hi all here are some finds I cannot identify from Big Brook. Please let me know what you think! Any help is appreciated.

 

First up I believe is some kind of pleistocene horse tooth fragment? But I am not sure. Thought it was a ratfish jaw frag at first from the other side, but it's like nothing I've seen.

Below, this is what looks to be a fish tooth of some kind, but it seems to have some of the root attached. So no hole visible at the bottom.  Slightly larger than a quarter in length!

Next, this appears to be a Native American Bead! My first Native item I've found. The bore holes on each side look drilled and the one side is flat, like a pendant that would go against the chest.

This below also looks like a tooth fragment because of the hole on the wide end, and the smaller hole at the other.

Finally here are some nice small teeth fragments as well! In order from left to right, they appear to be 1). Small Croc Tooth, 2.) Enchodus, 3.) Not sure maybe Plesiosaur? But very worn

Another piece of that last mystery tooth. VERY worn by the river and broken. Has a slight curve that's still visible however.

The first item is either recent or Pleistocene bone. Might be something interesting.

The second thing is an Enchodus jaw section.

The first two are both concretions unfortunately.

 

The three teeth from left to right are: either Croc or Enchodus (need more views to be sure), Enchodus, and most likely a Mosasaur tooth frag (need pic of other side).

Thanks! Still not sure what that first bone is but I totally agree it is pleistocene or more recent. I thought a piece of an antler initially but it has totally baffled me.
