Yesterday on the beach at Boulder found a fragment of Mammal jaw, most probably Bothriodon unless someone on the forum can give me a better identification. Unfortunately the tooth enamel has all been worn away exposing the roots of the teeth still embedded in the jaw bone. That said a nice specimen with 3 molar teeth, just wish I had found it before the enamel was worn away on the beach!

Could you show all sides please. A ruler in shot would be better

I have found jaw fragments like yours along the coast from Bouldnor to Hamstead. The trouble is they are small, often eroded and undiagnostic. So really it's almost impossible to give a reasonable ID. However, some years ago I took some jaw fragments very similar to your specimen to the Natural History Museum in Kensington and the ever helpful Dr Hooker said they might be Elomeryx. 
All the best Alex

Some pictures of the other sides as requested. Also thanks for the info will have a look at Elomeryx, but as you say specific ID is often difficult.
