unknown tooth 'please help'

Can anyone help me identify this tooth this tooth was found in the edisto river and appears to be a Angy, but the tooth has four side cusp instead of two. There is ywo cusp on each side the tooth measure in at 3 1/2 inches. I tried to post this in the forum area and could not get image to upload. Thanks for any help. I am thinking this tooth might be in the time frame in between the Ric and Angy.

Hey Sharkdentist, whether that tooth is angustidens or auriculatus depends on where in the river you found it. Definitely don't divulge your locations here, but the Edisto cuts through Eocene and Oligocene deposits in different areas. The Eocene deposits come from the Santee Limestone and the Oligocene deposits come from the Chandler Bridge and Ashley Formations. Awesome looking cusps on that tooth, whatever it is. Congrats!
