I walked up on a bone pile while doing a little shed hunting. This is beyond the range of my aging abilities.... Have a guess because its a guessing game. All 3 molars dished out





Think she died of old age?

Just might have. I'm not at all comfortable with aging from tooth wear either, but dang they look pretty worn to me.

You will have to ask Noah. I am pretty sure that on was on the Ark!

I would call it 6+

only thing exposure does is lightens the color of the dentine. Her 1st molars are worn completely flat and smooth and are almost gone down to the bone. It makes the jaws from my 5 1/2 year old look like a yearling.
