BICUPIDTTOOTH tooth, exposed for first time, was exposed in a Lake Titicaca lake, according to researchers from the University of Florida.
The fossilized tooth is about the size of a small toothpick and was discovered by divers working in a nearby lake.
The tooth was collected by divers last month after being discovered in a large, shallow lake.
“The fossil was found under the surface in the lake in the southeastern state of Tabasco,” said lead author and University of Miami professor Jovana M. Vila.
“We were not able to determine how it got there.
This is the first evidence that the tooth was in the mouth.”
The fossil was recovered from the surface of the lake by divers who were conducting fieldwork on the surface and were unable to identify the species of tooth, but they were able to identify a type of soft tissue that could be related to tooth development.
“It is a very rare find,” Vila said.
“You can’t really tell the species.
“So, it is likely that it is a member of the species, but it is also very likely that the species is not what we think it is. “
But, the reason we have this tooth is because of the age of the fossil,” she added.
“So, it is likely that it is a member of the species, but it is also very likely that the species is not what we think it is.
It may have been in the past and is now extinct.”
The researchers were not sure how the tooth got there, but that it had been deposited in the sediment and was not disturbed.
The team has been studying the lake for more than two decades.
The lake is located in Tabasquana state, and the lake was created by the construction of a dam in the 1930s.
“Because of the development of dams and the loss of the natural environment, there was a need for divers to go out and go out to the surface,” Villa said.
The researchers believe that the fossil was probably a juvenile member of a group of three to five species.
“They were all fairly new to the water, but were relatively large, so it was quite a large group,” she said.
A species of shark also lived in the area and was a major tourist attraction in the 1980s, according the University.
“In the 1980’s, there were a lot of shark species in the water.
They were just a part of the ecosystem and they were a part that tourists came to see,” Vella said.
This species of adult shark was identified by the University’s Shark Conservation Program as the Bicuspidae, which was an extinct group of large predatory fish.
The Bicupids are not considered a group in the same class as the common name, but Vila believes that the shark’s unique anatomy and physiology make it more distinct from the other sharks.
“This tooth is not only a specimen that was found, but we have some idea that the specimen was a shark, and that it probably had teeth in its mouth, and then we have other pieces of the puzzle,” she explained.
“For example, it was a very large shark, it had some very big teeth in the tooth, and we know that the teeth were present.
So, we think that this specimen was in some way associated with the Bichiridae.”
The team is now working with scientists at the Brazilian Museum of Natural Sciences in Sao Paulo to continue to study the fossil.
