Out yesterday, gorgeous day, good friends, mostly small shark teeth but a few keepers.

That deer tine is one of my best at 2.75 inches, and the beaver molar, hard to find in this condition, is sweet!!!!

But this tread is about a Carnassial or maybe it is a p4. Luckily, I hunt with a quarter inch screen.  What animal family is this?  It does not look like bigger canids I have.  For that matter, it does not look like my felid carnassials. At first , I thought peccary molar, then tapir pre_molar, ....

FL Jack,

 

The flat specimen between the barracuda teeth and ear bone looks like a really nice sturgeon scute/scale (in the top left corner of your 1st photo.)

 

Cheers,

The tooth looks to me like a mustelid . . . perhaps from an otter.  Just a guess.

Thanks Harry,

I hoped you would see and respond. You have a sense of what is possible and also what are the the few possibilities based on size. I could not have received a better "guess"  !!!

Jack , I would LOVE :wub: to find out this is a Sturgeon scute...but it seems to thick. The fossil is unusual, I have a box of unusual fossils like this looking for duplicates and variations.

Here are some additional photos:
