Rare Rooted Gomphothere Tooth


I don't often get gomphothere teeth and when I do, they never have roots. This one is partially rooted with an odd wear pattern. There must have been a slight misalignment with the upper jaw since one loph is worn down about an inch lower than the rest of the tooth.
There is no repair or restoration. Although there are some cracks, they have been stabilized and the tooth is solid. Recovered from a coastal river in Georgia.
The chewing surface measures 6 1/2" x 3 1/2".

  • Model: EF0218


Gomphotherium sp.
