I'm not having much luck in trying to identify this fossil tooth, by attempting to find similar images of tooth pattern and size. I have no information on where it was found, and the label only read "Fossil Tooth". The roots are large, and show some kind of apparent secondary mineral growth which gives them an abnormally rough appearance. The enameled crown measures 2.75" x 1.40", and the height when upright measures 3". There is loose, but trapped, bone, visible in one of the pictures, between four of the roots. If anyone has any suggestions, or recognizes the tooth, it would be appreciated greatly! Paul
