I could hardly wait to get back on line to post another What Is It. :--?
Last one was won by Jase who guessed a wire from a certain ladies undergarment. Show one of them to a guy whose never seen one and you'd be surprised at some of the guesses, most having to do with engines. :lol:

These are taken from the out of doors. I've heard three people mention the existence of these. One gentleman having given me this pair of ear rings he had made from them.

I've tried to think of a hint but have yet to come up with a good one that doesn't give it away.

After giving it some thought, Im pretty sure the source for these is the Pacific NW. or at least that's where I associate having heard of them. So my apology to you guys from elsewhere.

Nope nope nope... nice guess though. Well should I tell ya?
I guess.

These are called Drum Fish "Ivories" taken from the "ear" of a drum fish !!!! Now why the heck didn't everyone know that??? Just kidding. But I thought someone might. When tapped against the teeth it doesn't sound like bone, but like ivory. When I think of an ivory producing animal of course elephant comes to mind and walrus. So I guess if they as well as Elk can produce ivory,,,, then why not a fish? Now whether they are ivory or not I don't know. But interesting little items. Not like people stop me on the street and rave about my Drum Fish Ivory ear rings ! lol. Thanks for playing.

We have drum here, but all I have heard people taking out of them is the "pearls" or the "stones". Haven't heard of these to my knowledge

We have what are called " freshwater drum ". Never caught one but I read about them in the game and fish magazines.

Yeah, so are Pac NW "drum" the same thing as a freshwater drum?? These fish are called "sheep head" around here. The things you showed look a lot like some tiger shark teeth an ebay customer of mine send me for my kids...
