Someone could help me identify this tooth, it comes from north Vietnam.

It measures 3.5cm or 1.38 inches.

Thank you in advance.

Crocuta 67.

Are you sure it's Pleistocene? It has some of that red clay on it which may indicate it's from the Late Miocene "Hipparion Beds." I used to see a lot of Late Miocene and some Pleistocene fossils from China at shows.

In the Late Miocene there were a few different species of hyenas. Their teeth can be very cat-like because some hyenas were not as specialized for bone-cracking. Have you ruled them out?

It dates from the pleistocene ,I do not know any more.

Thank you to you. :)
