Would anyone happen to have any idea who this tooth would have belonged too. I've inherited it and have googled loads of different animals and cannot find anything like it.....
Anyone with an idea, please let me know, as I am very curious
Thank you, Claire
Try Hippopotamus, I cannot get a perfect match from a quick search of Google but size and general morphology would appear consistent.
Here is a link which describes types of teeth. The one in your photos is called Bunodont. This type of tooth is seen in Pigs and their allies and the hippopotamus. In veiw of the size I favour Hippo.
