Hi, whilst fossil hunting my son found this tooth at Bouldnor, Isle of Wight today. Any ideas what it belonged to?44F054AB-490D-4D66-9D56-81E0F566A175.jpeg

Hello, welcome on the forum!
But; without a picture it is going to be extremely difficult to tell what tooh this is...
Please give us something to work with.

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hi and thanks for the welcome, been lurking in here for a while. I uploaded 3 photos but it doesn’t seem to have worked, will try again.
For reference the tooth is approximately 2 inches from root to cap.
Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

Looks like a large ox/cow molar.

Hello, for the size it is very low crowned; so  large deer is a possabillity; megaloceras?

Thanks guys, I was thinking maybe Bison, but perhaps a little small/ratio of root to crown incorrect. Large deer of elk species could be a good shout. Regardless, it’s rather a nice piece.
We found some other fossils on the same trip: turtle shell, sponge (?) and some nice pieces of bone.

Hello, first two bits are turtleshell, 3&4 might be turtlebone; 5 is a conglomeration with either bivalves or iron concretions, I can `t tell...
