I found these teeth in bouldnor, Isle of Wight and believe they are from a mammal. They are from the bouldnor clay and are about 30 million years old.
All help would be much appreciated

I'm no expert but I've found a few similar looking pieces that have been identified Bothriodon sp. (an extinct hippo-like mammal the size of a pig). In my experience Bothriodon teeth are the most commonly found mammal teeth found at this location.

 This website is an absolute wealth of information for identifying finds here...
