Tooth/ jaw fossil Kaw River ( Kansas )

Recommended Posts

Walked a sandbar today and found this fossilized tooth with part of jaw. Found on Kaw ( Kansas River ) sandbank Eastern Kansas. Jaw part is completely vitreous ( non absorbent/ non porous ) and tooth has begun to agatize. 
 

Not sure on I.D. … possibly Camelid?

We would need a picture looking straight down on the chewing surface to help ID.  ;)
