    I found these yesterday in a creek in the loess hills by Glenwood. Any ideas on what they are? The large one is 3 in long 1 1/4 in wide and 3/4 in thick. Also found some petrified bones. Thanks Mark

    The two smaller ones look to be canine teeth. The big one? I don’t have a clue

    The top right one looks like it could be a wolf molar tooth and the other small one looks to be K 9 also.Here’s a link to a few pic.s.

    Mine are all accounted for. :mrgreen: Not sure what they are but canine sure looks good for the two on the right. Bison or horse would be my guess on the big one. Great finds. I especially like the canines. They are unusual.

    i recently found a tooth similar to the larger one. I would guess it might be a bison tooth?

    I liked the canine- canine too. Laying next to some coyote canines it was at least three times larger and slightly different shaped, so I have no clue what it could be.

    Matt G. do you think bison?

    [Teeth]

    This is a pict from known teeth!!
    The 4 on top are Coyote teeth I pulled them, two upper fangs and one lower fang and one molar? they are up to 2″ long and I have larger! The bottom two are domestic dog also around 2″ long but usually a little thicker! They also are lower fangs, Wolf teeth are much bigger than these! I think the ones you found look like LG coyote or even more dog to me!
    On the teeth you found, the fang is a lower left tooth and the molar is from the lower left jaw also!

    yes, the one is most likely from a horse. But, could also be from a ruminant. It is a hypsodont tooth.

    The teeth of cows and deer are hypsodont. Mammals that feed on abrasive substances(vegetation with sand & grit on it) are subject to rapid wear on their teeth. Many of these species have teeth that extend unusually far above the gumline.;l 😐
