Crazy Mystery Fossil

A friend from California gave this to me many years ago (but I'm not 100% sure it's from California). Does anyone know what it is?

Looks a bit like a broken and worn piece of mammoth molar

I think it's a partial mammoth tooth.

Agreed. Partial mammoth tooth. An internet search for "mammoth tooth" or "mammuthus tooth" will turn up similar images to compare to (like the following):

Thank you all for your answers! I am much more of a dinosaur person, so mammals and proboscideans are not my forte. :bone: :dinosmile:
