Cow tooth

Isn't it funny how when I used to go out in the woods with goats, I noticed trees and flowers? And when I go out in the woods editing a werewolf book, I instead find dinosaur bones?

(Okay, so I'm pretty sure this tooth actually started life inside a cow. But for a solid minute there, I was positive I'd made an archaeological discovery!)

I'm sure if I asked Jedd, he'd's a dino bone :)

True story- in the 70's my dad had some black dirt/peat dug from a low, swampy area in a very dry year to put on our garden done by a guy with a back hoe that was doing work for us. Some bones were dug up.

Dad worked in the English department at a state collage, he took the bones to a friend in archeology- they turned out to be bison bones estimated to be thousands of years old! The swampy area was between two lakes, and it is possible the animal met it's demise breaking through ice.

So Anna, those could have been a woolly mammoth, killed by a pack of Direwolves!
