Several interesting finds from the Peace River Wednesday.  I will post in pairs and hope for assistance with ID. First up are two specimens that came up on the same shovel.  Guessing at #1 as a Giant Armadillo Scute,  #2 I have no clue.  Thanks for any input.

Nope. #3 shows signs of a camelid molar. Can't see the occlusal surface of #4 with enough detail to see what pattern there is on the chewing surface. It would help to see the pattern on the top of #4 taken outside with some bright light (and as close as you can get and still obtain a focused image). I agree with the other idenfications. @Harry Pristis may be able to help with #4 if we can get a clearer photo of the details.

 

Nice diversity of finds. You've got a good spot there--keep hitting it.

 

 

Cheers.

Thank you Ken.  Will see what can be done on the photos later today.  For now, I'm heading back to the Peace River.  Pulled up 4 Meg's, many other shark teeth, Horse teeth and a Glyptodont Dermal there Wed. Along with the small jaw that has yet to be identified, (possibly Gar).

Here is the close up of #4 taken in sunlight.  Hope it helps with efforts to ID.  Also, included a photo to show some finds from Wed & Fri on the Peace River.  Nice little spot I found that keeps yielding a good variety of specimens. These include horse, Meg, Tiger, Snaggletooth, Mammoth tooth fragments, Alligator and another unknown fragment.  For a novice just starting to search on my own this April I am thrilled with what I have been able to find.

No. 4 appears to be half of a worn deer cheek tooth.
