Horse or Bison tooth?

Recommended Posts

ilzho

Hello:

 

This was found on the beach in North Carolina.

 

I can't remember if I was told if this was a small horse tooth or a bison tooth.

 

Any help is always greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

David

Horse lower cheek tooth, not bison.

Bison teeth are similar to Bos teeth.
