Hello together,

here I have 4 fragmentary teeth and only a slight idea what they could be.


Nr. 1 is the only one I found myself, in the gravel at teh rhine river. its relatively heavy and colourfull what makes me think it could be (sub-)fossil.

Looks like a bovid or cervid to me. Any further ideas?


Nr. 2 I bought on online, together with nr. 4, they where supposedly found in lignite.

Nr. 4 looks like a tiny proboscidean to me (only a layer out of a tooth), with nr. 2 I have got no idea.(small piece of similar layer?


Nr. 3 seems to be a carnassial, I think its from china. The texture may tell something to some of you?


Thanks in advance for any information you can give me.

Number 3 looks like an hyena to me . So as hyena are feliform it also could be a cat too

Thanks Bobby, that´s convincing, a very close fit as far as I can tell.

I hoped for a hyaena, otherwise it would have been a massive cat.


That leaves the two mystery Probsocideans?

Any idea anybody?  supoposedly found in lignite, looks like layers from an elephantlike molar to me, but they are small, the lines are 5mm appart on the paper.
