Senile Bovine?

Recommended Posts

Just recieved this from a Chinese seller

( might not be originally from there though!) Stated as Pleistocene. Not sure what I am looking at. 

I have tried comparing with many photos online and can't seem to come up with a good match.

Might this be from an "off the normal grid" bovine such as Water Buffalo or oxen or just a very senile animal like bison?

Heck, it may not even be bovid at all.

There doesn't seem to be a pronounced stylid on the side.

Any and all opinions are welcomed.

That is a very pretty piece Doren- Harry should be able to confirm for you.

Yes, I think it is bovid -- that loop of enamel is the remnant of an isolated stylid in a worn tooth.  Maybe a Bubalus sp. jaw, maybe some other Chinese bovid.
