Small jaw bone with tooth

Recommended Posts

Reebs

Hi there! Found this tiny piece of jawbone at a land site in Venice, FL. It looks like it has at least one whole tooth left in it. The jaw is 1.5” long and the tooth itself is about .5” wide.  I’m not sure of the formation or period unfortunately.  I did find meg teeth next to it so leads me to believe I’m possibly digging in Miocene- Pliocene? Is this a correct assumption, or not always?  Thank you for any ideas and/or info.  I LOVE this site! A world wide community of folks who inspire passion and continuous learning. How incredible! :)  Marie

Nice find! It looks like a bison jaw section to me.

But doesn't the jaw bone itself seem a little on the small side for a bison?

Could be a juvenile or just a small individual. Also it's just a small section of jaw.

Appears to me to be white tail deer, senile lower.

With the deviated roots and small jawbone, that makes sense to me...
