Hi All,

 

Another Mammal tooth found river diving in South Carolina, and I'm not sure what it is:

Not simply a beaver (Castor sp.), but a giant beaver (Castoroides sp.).

Thanks for the positive ID everyone!

I'm happy to learn it's something a little out of the ordinary!

I love the colors of this tooth which you can see most clearly in the last photo.

The particular dive site where I found this tooth produces fossils in quite a variety of beautiful colors.
