Tooth and claw ID please

Hi,

 

We found these in what we believe to be a very old midden on Fariad Head, Durness.

I can post more pics if required.

 

Many thanks for your help!

    Most appear to be the teeth of sheep or deer - the two grey coloured pieces on the right are the claw digits of a crab.

     

    John is excellent at this stuff; perhaps he can tell us more?

    The bottom left item looks like the lower leg bone of a male chicken or pheasent. 

     

    The top left tooth looks like it might be a cow tooth although a better view of the grinding surface would help. 

     

    I agree with crab claws and sheep or deer deeth for the rest.
