Mastodon tooth find

Recommended Posts

My son and I discovered this a few weeks ago while metal detecting. Didn’t realize what it was at first but knew it was something important

This is a fantastic find and it gives me hope to maybe find something nice here in Houston. I need to plan a future hunting trip :)

I'm always scanning the ground in Houston for fossils when I visit my son at college, the best I've seen are oysters and gastropods. Congrats on a great find!:yay-smiley-1:

Amazing find! I wonder if the rest of the beastie is nearby where you found this tooth. It is in such great shape that I suspect it may have moved far from the rest of the beast.

Awesome!

 

(I once thought I found a mammoth tooth, but it turned out to be an old car fuel filter :DOH:)
