Mammal Mandible I.d. Needed


Recommended Posts

This mandible was found yesterday in a creek in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. It appears to be fossilized but I'm not sure. It obviously was a juvenile; as seen in the last picture a molar was pushing out a tooth, and the rearmost molar had not emerged.

I agree. It's most likely not fossilized.

Cool find though.
