All about the horses – #NTCave2017

Another day in the cave, snuggled in my corner, looking at horse teeth.

Two horse upper molars that I suspect may be the same species.


A deciduous (baby) molar of a horse.


An adult lower third molar (equivalent to our wisdom teeth) that had only just erupted and started wearing.


A horse cannon bone and proximal phalynx (toe bone).


At the end of the day, it seemed like a good time for a selfie.

Always sideways.


Staying topside tomorrow. I’ll let you know what I discover!
