Fossil Horse Tooth - Equus sp.

THE SCIENCE

These teeth belonged to a prehistoric ancestor to modern horses. Based on fossil evidence, science has determined these prehistoric horsesran wild across North and South America during the Pleistocene epoch, approximately 2 million years ago. These horses disappeared during the Ice Age, along with other prehistoric species like the wooly mammoth. These teeth, similar to those of modern ungulate herbivores, are broad and flat in order to masticate foliage.

THE STORY

It may not look like a tooth you recognize, but this black fossil horse tooth is a genuine relic of the Pleistocene era. Its color can be attributed to the mineral it lay buried in for thousands of years. Found on the beaches of South Carolina, this fossil horse tooth is a desirable item for any fossil hunter, horse lover, or curiosity collector.
