[Solved] Horse tooth

Post by andiron »

Not sure where to put this, but very curious what this is, found on foreshore of river Thames, originally thought it was a handle of pottery etc. but after cleaning from mud looks more like a bone. I searched over through bones of typical animals like cow, horse etc. but nothing looks similar.. any thoughts?
It's fairly heavy, heavier than bone.

Rolling about naked in mud will give the wrong impression.

Thank you all! Yep it must be a horse tooth, I have to admit, checked all bones but didn't bother with looking at teeth as in my opinion it was too big, but it looks exactly like the one you showed above!
