Hi, I recently purchased some fossil titanothere teeth on eBay. I don't think the seller had ever sold or shipped a fossil before, when it arrived and I picked up the box it became immediately clear that it hadn't been packed well. When I opened it my worst fears were immediately confirmed. Lying there in a single piece of bubble wrap was my fossil in pieces . I'm hoping to repair it and I was thinking of using some plaster and paint certain parts black to repair it but people here are much more experienced than me and usually have better ideas then I do. Here are some photos:

Okay, traded a couple of premium-grade teeth to a friend and ended up getting my dream fossil out of it: a Titanothere skull from Nebraska. So, now what? If anybody on here is well-versed in Titanotheres, can you help figure a genus? It would have been a little one, as the skull is about 2' long and the animal was very old when it died, indicated by the extremely worn teeth show. Nick
