Interesting mammal tooth found scanning a Monmouth County NJ stream today. Can anyone help identify? Old or new?  Cretaceous stream

cow, maybe bison.  I know there are a few folks here who can tell the difference.  I believe the difference between the two is based on the lobe in front of your middle finger in the first photo.

Bison stylids are isolated, this appears to be cow. Note the Bison stylid below. IMG_6980.thumb.JPG.acfe86f0e4d80c24605f3a28e5943203.JPG

Would agree its not isolated. Any idea on possible age?

It's modern, Bos weren't present in North America prior to domestication.
