Unknown Fossil Found At Mcfadden Beach, Tx


Recommended Posts

We have been doing a lot of debating on this one. Piece measures approximately 22 cm X 10 cm X 5 cm and none of us have ever seen anything like it before. It looks like an oyster, but not quite; a tooth, but no root; maybe a scute for something really big... On the bottom there are two holes that could be for nerves or a blood supply. The top (at least I assume it's the top) has these raised lines that run the length of it. The bottom is concave. Almost makes you think of a flipper.

Oh, I give up! What do ya'll think?

Not mastodon, but mammoth...part of the tooth root. Nice find. :)
