Spot the Fossil

I always keep an eye out for fossils.  Once in a while it pays off!  I found one here.  Can you see it?

DSCF2119Maybe a closer look will help.

DSCF2118There it is.  Do you know what it is?

DSCF2120A tooth!  I believe these are bison teeth (they are fairly common here) but if anyone knows better, please comment!

DSCF2121I’ll take it home and brush it, then put it in the drawer with my other teeth 🙂

    Great find! I was going to guess a horse tooth.

      That’s a really good guess. They seem very similar to me, but I think horse teeth are longer. This one is both longer and squarer than the ones I’m sure are bison. I know it isn’t camel… I think!
