Bison Teeth?


Recommended Posts

Hello (again)!
I went out searching today, and I found some teeth! Yahoo!
In a stream bed in Plano, TX, no formation known.

I am guessing they are the same type as my previous find: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/41275-horse-tooth-possibly/#entry450640

I would like confirmation (or correction) about what they are! (And even placement in the jaw?)

(apologies for the lines in the photos... my lamp does that)

The left one may be bovine, it's kind of hard to see.

The other two are from a horse.

The formation may help to put an age to them, but being from a river it's kind of a guessing game

Congrats on the finds!

The tooth on the right is the last tooth on the left lower jaw of a horse--- I have heard it called a "packing" tooth.

The tooth on the left may be Bison or may be modern cow -- these two animals are almost impossible to separate just by their teeth.

Basically agreeing with Fossilized6s

Edited to add two photos -- this tooth could be modern cow or bison, It is actually bison because it is fossilized and we did not have cows in Florida 15000 years ago.

Well awesome! Thank you!

They are all definately fossilized. Hard as a rock and heavy!
Ive found bison before in the same locality, so I will go ahead and guess that the first one is bison.

As for the horse teeth, that is a new find for me! Yahoo!

Thank you!
