Fossil Friday!

There was some feedback on Facebook and on our blog, re: the Day of the Dead Fossil Fridays have been a little too easy.

In order to taunt you at your maximum capacity, I've limited the photograph this week to only include the teeth. And I've asked Eric Meikle, one of our house anthropologists, to create a special riddle just for you!

Eric's riddle:

"Neither a student prince nor a Rhodes Scholar, in dire need of an oral surgeon, who can name this nonagenarian?"

Can you guess the fossil?  And for that matter, can you guess the references in Eric's riddle?

Answer on Monday, where bragging rights will be distributed for the week.
