Please Help Verify If This Is A Mammoth Tooth

Recommended Posts

I was visiting the local museum of a small town near San Antonio and found what I think is a mammoth tooth amid their collection. The curator just thought it was an unusual rock that had been donated before he came to the museum. In the exhibit, it was on the floor next to a crumbling tombstone. I took a few pictures with my phone, but did not think to include a scale. From memory, I'd say it is around 6-8" long, 4-5" wide, and about 3" deep. What do you think? Did I get it right?

A partial, upper mammoth tooth, not in very good shape. Good eye to spot it!
