Default Teeth I.D.

Anybody know what kind of teeth these are? My father-in-law found them on a river bank in south Alabama

The sharp points had me thinking incisors but the serrations make me think plant eater. Omnivore?

Wiki'd this:

They are primarily benthic feeders. With their projecting, wedge-shaped snouts, they stir up the soft bottom, and use the barbels to detect shells, crustaceans and small fish, on which they feed. Having no teeth, they are unable to seize prey, though larger specimens can swallow very large prey items, including whole salmon.[7]

I see it's been resolved but I was going to say I know what horses's teeth look like and I doubt those were cow teeth.
