Mammal Tooth

Found this tooth/tusk in South Carolina off the coast of Tybee Island. We went with a guide and she said it was the tooth of a Jaguar, but she said to check on here to be sure!I think it looks like a whale tooth but it is much thicker than many I have seen.

We'll need better pictures to make any kind of ID on this item. :unsure:  

 

Please do not hold the item. 
Take pictures of one side, the other side, and from the top looking down directly on the chewing surface. 

Take the photos outside in natural day light, and please be sure to include a ruler in the pictures for scale. 

Others will be able to make a more confident ID with in focus, well lit, detailed pictures.

I took the liberty of cropping and lightening your pictures.

Unfortunately, they are too blurry to even make out if there is enamel on this item. :unsure:

Phone cameras are usually good enough. 

Take the pictures outside, or next to a window for optimal lighting. 

Make sure you don't get too close to the subject. 

Try to focus on the object alone, and not the background. 
Crop the photos afterwards, to only include the fossil, if your phone can edit the photos. :)
