Bison or Camel molar?

Recommended Posts

Found this years ago in Myrtle beach South Carolina, I thought it was a bison molar but I've seen some fossilized camel teeth recently that looked possibly closer to my tooth, any ideas are welcome!

Nice tooth! Sorry I can’t help with an ID but I’m sure someone who can will be here soon.

Camel,  the side is broken so can not tell if it has a stylid -- Camel never has them.

Here is on of Harry's photos

 looks pretty spot on with what I have, I think you're likely right, thanks for the response!

So likely Pliocene or Pleistocene?
