mammal jaw!

Well my trip today started out when I saw Obsessed's latest post while I was at work. The fever struck me hard. SO I decided to leave work early to try my luck at a beach I haven't been to in about 2 months.

 

The tide was pretty low. Not blown out but a real nice summer time low. I wasn't finding much at all really just some tiny teeth. About 3/4 the way down the cliffs I saw a bone sticking out from under a boulder. I picked it up and then realized it was a MAMMAL JAW fragment. Still containing 2 very beat up teeth. I've never pulled a mammal tooth off this beach except for today.

I dug around the mud for some associated teeth or bones and I did come up with another piece of bone that covers the side of the jaw that the root of the tooth is exposed but unfortunatly no teeth.

 

The jaw fragment measures 2.25 long--/--The tooth measure 1 3/8 from what is left of the top to the end of the root.

Nice find Tony. I'm not sure though what it is. One angle looks maybe squalodon? Content Quality : 10 of 10
