Camping and hill climbing on dirt bikes at the moment in rough mountainous country 20 km's from Heathcote ,Vic and found this tooth on a heap of cow bones. It aint no cow tooth. What's people's opinion of this ?

Sorry, just saw your post now, and that looks mighty like a cat or fox canine tooth to me... but it also looks way too big for fox... I'm no dental expert though.

Thanks Shazzoir but it would have ten times the bulk of a fox tooth . I've skun many foxes. I'll get a better photo with something next to it tomorrow.

Perhaps a vet could identify the precise species it's from, or at least narrow it down to canine or feline?

I'm no expert but could it be a rear bird claw ?
