Alligator Jaw Bone, Fossilized Section, Peace River, Pleistocene

Description

This is a small section of alligator jaw bone recovered from Pleistocene deposits in the Peace River of Florida's Bone Valley formation (approx. 11,000 to 2,500,000 years ago). This specimen is part of the jaw with two tooth sockets. One side shows the distinctive pitted "strawberry" texture of the bone. This piece is very well preserved and hard. These are not found as often as you would think, given how many alligators there are in Florida.
