Fossil Teeth

Hi everyone,

 

I recently got a couple teeth as a gift and was able to identify some but these were a harder nut to crack.

The biggest (the dark one on the left) is about 4-5cm. This one also feels extremly light for its size so it might be fake.

Any help with these would be appreciated!

I think what ever they were most of them were too old to crack nuts at the time. They look well worn.

The larger one looks like a piece of bone.

I believe the one marked 2230 can be identified if you show us a picture of the bite surface.  It looks like it could be deer?

Is the bite surface sort of visible on the left tooth of the last photo? Its dark, might need to be brightened a bit.

The left piece looks like a piece of bone, the second left looks like an arctiodactyl tooh I need better phot to determine if it is from bovid or deer, the third looks like the third molar of a suid like boar or pig and the forth is too worn I can't understand

This one is a bear Left M1 - since it is about 70% larger than a black bear, I am guessing it is Ursus spelaeus

Thanks everyone for the help! If the most left one is bone its sadly almost impossible to find out what its from
