I'm not sure if it is Cardium or not because Cardium has deeper carinas.
My guess is Lampsilis cardium

This tooth is found in the archeological ruins in my town. There is na amphitheater here where the gladiators fought against each other but ostly they fought with animals. This amphitheater is built in 2nd century BC.
So can any one identyfy to what animal this tooth belong. Some said it is a wild boer sime to a carvorius or Feline animals.
I am asking some one who is expert.

Thank you
