Hello all. New user.
I was recently given these by a friend who’d had them hidden away covered in dust for many years. It would be treat if anybody could determine which animal these belonged to?

1. A very large tooth, molar I presume.
2. A large curved vertebrae (I think) fossilised/crystallised?
Thank you all in advance.

Cant help with the tooth but the 'vert' is actually a section of ammonite, you can see the suture lines and 'cats paws'.

Assume the tooth has been attached to a plinth so I assume at some point someone thought it worthy of display.
Maybe something woolly from the iceage...rhino maybe?? But I'm just guessing.

Hello, tooth is deffo rhino; what make`s it special is that it has hardly been chewed on/with, so the animal died at not an old age...
The ammonite chambers are beautifull and would make great teaching material.
Both very nice pieces!

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Thank you all for the interesting notes. Fascinating that the tooth is a Rhino, it certainly has a lot of age but as mentioned above the tooth is in good order. Perhaps once hunted for meat or a trophy.
I have attached images of the segments

By “rhino” what is meant is woolly rhino, a now extinct creature from the ice age 😊
