Need some help on a molar? Deer?

Recommended Posts

Well Gang, here's the latest unknown I could use some help with.

A surface find Manatee County, FL. Likely Plio-Pleistocene in age. It is good sized and just over 1 inch at its widest (2.8cm X 1.5cm) in occlusal view.

 

Can anyone confirm it is or is not deer? Would love to hear the reasoning on how/why. Went thru some of the other Deer/llama ID posts but I'm still unsure.  I'd love to have genus if either is possible if its not deer. Let me know if any other measurements/views are needed.

I think this is a camel upper, Chris.
