Mammoth tooth?

Recommended Posts

Zenmaster6

This was found in Florida. Unspecified location. It was pretty small but I wanted to know if it was a mammoth juvenile or not. I actually own a mammoth tooth and it looks very similar but it's so small I wasn't sure. Possibly one of those pygmy elephant things. If anyone knows PLEASE tell me

Looks like a juvenile mammoth, maybe a spit tooth?

I don't think it's part of a spit tooth, but I haven't seen ALL spit teeth.  This may be fragment of the end, anterior or posterior, of a larger tooth.  Sometimes, the enamel plates at the margins of the tooth are split into shorter segments.  That one complete plate in this fragment may represent a split plate at the end of a larger tooth.

 

You can see several split plates in these two spit teeth:
