The tooth is too blurry another clearer pic would help. Also where were they found? This would help folks narrow it down.

Given that I have been out of the game for some time identifying this tooth is giving me some trouble. The tooth is very interesting. At first glance I would say porpoise but after looking at the pictures for a little I dot think that's what it is. Now there is a chance this could be from a terrestrial mammal. It's a very cool find. I can't wait for this tooth to be properly identified.
