Hey y'all! Been a while since I last posted. Recently I found this fossilized 15,000+ year old Tapirus Veroensis jawbone (Vero Tapir). By far my best find ever. Came straight out of a North Florida creek. Absolutely baller. The restoration process was a nightmare haha Hope you enjoy the pictures and video.

Pretty cool. I wonder if it knew its descendants had only 4000 years left to occupy the US?. Probably not as there wasn't anyone making such predictions on what to prepare for back then. To bad for them I guess.
