hello all . first im new to this site .
my hubby and i were out walking and came back over a field and we came across a tooth!
were in the uk and the field we was in went for miles around ..
ive tried looking for which animal its from ...but not 100% sure ..
i will add a picture asap so you can all view it ..
Bit surprised to see someone else typeing at this time of day.. Are you in the U.S. ?( or far like that nut in New Zealand that keeps posting )
Our toothless viewers await your pic
hi there ... im always up early .
im in the uk ..
im struggling to get a piccy on ... can anyone help me?
The tooth appears to be from a bovine. It is too broad across the crown in relation to its length to be from an Aurochs so it is probably a domestic animal. The even wear across the crown of the tooth indicates that she was well-cared for and probably a dairy cow.
aww many thanks redman .... this has given me a whole new light of life to go out and investigate for more treasure in our area ...
i will try and ask the farmer if there was cows on the land at some point ..
WHAT ...Your horses BABY TOOTH ...I didn't even know there were such things !
Good job Red gave you a solid answer to the found tooth, I brought an older posting up to this date, look for "LARGE TOOTH FOUND > > > > " Lots of input but a real fast look ID is tricky.
There's a lot of neat antiquity on your little isle.." Keep looking down "
Can horses really believe there is a tooth fairy
yes its my horses baby tooth .. :)
Donalewis, domestic cattle have been in the UK since 4000 BC, chances are the farmer can't remember that far back unless he's an Irishman. Realistically the tooth you found could be several hundred years old.
