We have found a number of land mammals at Carmel Church over the years, but this is the first excavation on which we’ve found two different ones. This morning we recovered this small land mammal tooth. I’m not yet sure what type of animal it came from, but it is definitely different from the five large teeth we found yesterday.
We continued working on the series of large bones that we exposed a few days ago. The long bone at the top of the picture is the baleen whale lower jaw, while the mass of bone at the bottom seems to include jaw, skull, and rib material, although I’m not certain of the identification of those.
