  • South Carolina Fossil Tooth What Type

    My aunt gave this to me years ago and I have always wondered what type of tooth it may have been. Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.

    Wow that is a big tooth. It could be a bison tooth. I am no expert on fossil ID though. someone will chime in and correct me if I am wrong. We have some really good Fossil folks on this forum. SOme good at ID and some of us are the fossils.

      I know most if not all fossilized teeth are blackened but this tooth appears to have been polished or coated, possibly for cleaning and presentation. It's almost too much of a shine to it. That said, I'd agree with Hoss on the possible ident. Let's see what our experts have to say.

        I have not the slightest what that chopper came from but it is one dandy of a specimen...

            I think that the GemCity tooth is also horse.

                I was told it came from a river and how my aunt got it I didn’t know. I do know she traveled around to rock and gem shows. I also got a megalodon tooth she gave me.
