    The croc tooth is a possibility because there have been other croc bones found in the area too! Thank you so much for getting back with me on this. I will pass on this info to the “experts” so they can have a closer look, with the teeth in hand.

    Hi all,
    Could this actually be an “unknown” species, since no one is able to put an I.D. on it??? Paleontologists here in S. Cal. haven’t been able to identify it either. But thank you for all your input.

    • So looking these over again, I am leaning towards a croc tooth perhaps. you mentioned they are quite small, but the length-wise striations on the tooth remind me of croc teeth.

    Wow, nobody have any idea on the I.D. of these teeth? No wonder my local “experts” couldn’t answer that either. Any guesses???? Thanks. Jerry

    Actually, both teeth are “smaller”—-about the size of a small sized pea. (Sorry, I removed pics with the tape measure, can’t find them now!) Thank you!

    Hi all,

    Just wondering if there is any more information on the tooth I.D.—-or if it has been established that it is a tooth.  (or two samples pictured, two teeth)  Thanks all and Happy New Year!

    Thanks all, for your help. The fossils were found in the southern California desert. Other fossils that have been found in this area are anywhere from 4 to 6 m.y.o. so, I’m guessing these teeth are from that time period too. The teeth were deposited on what was the “guts” of the Grand Canyon and the common thought is that they were deposited…[Read more]

    Hi Jennifer,
    I have deleted all other photos of the “tooth” and uploaded new. Note: These are two teeth which I believe belonged to the same animal in the photos. You can distinguish between the teeth by the color. The darkish teeth are all from the first tooth and the tan colored tooth is the other tooth. (Both teeth are about the size of…[Read more]

    • Thanks, Jerry! Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this tooth mystery! @jeanette-pirlo – was difficult to tell in previous photos but any guesses now? Or know of anyone that may have a better idea? Maybe @vperez? Jerry uploaded many more images – please click to look at them all!

      • Hi @jerry-hughes can you give us some more info on the tooth? Where did you find it? etc. Thanks!
