Teeth ID (solved : horse incisors)

Recommended Posts

Need help identifying these teeth/tusks (4cm long) I found in Rhodes (Greece). Since the area was a landslide caused by waters flowing over different layers of sediment (clay, marl, sandstone) the resulting mix contained both sea (shells) and land (pine cone impressions) fossils I cannot give a clear estimate of age, just place it somewhere within the upper Pliocene - lower Pleistocene boundaries.

Thank you all for the quick response! Have to admit I was hoping for something more exotic (land fauna is definitely not something I'm familiar with:unsure:). Now I have to consider the fact that these might be modern remains and will not be able to solve the dating riddle until I visit the site again - that will have to be a quest for my next trip to Rhodes..
