Fossils with questions are tossed in a special bucket for thinking about when hunting opportunities start drying up. That time has come.

Here a couple:  The question:  Mastodon or Gomph;  I have found Gomph fragments in this location.

Another 2 inch fossil, that I almost threw away!! Laying in the sieve, I thought it was unidentifiable bone, but then noted the odd ends. So Bone or Tooth ....

If you decided tooth for this 2nd one, you might check out the fossils in this old thread!!!

Thanks for all responses.

You need to find a reservoir. When they dry up it's good hunting. :)

Possibilities, possibilities....:zzzzscratchchin:, :egypt:

When I was 10, I would walk into reservoirs (avoiding permits, regulations, gates) with a fishing rod and lunch in a brown bag. Good memories, alone in nature. Sometimes, it would be really low but did not find any fossils. It was Connecticut.

 

I am conflicted with the bone/canine. I think the brownish, specky outside layer argues against tooth, but there is a lot that "fits". Shape and there is a lot of texture to the exposed sections..
