What large bone does this belong to?

I’m fairly certain this is a piece off a large bone from a mammoth or mastodon. Can anyone recognize what bone it’s from? Pelvis??

Gary, the orientation is a little confusing.  Do you have other images?

To me, it has a sloth 'jiz'.

 I can see how it resembles a sloth tibia, but I only have one picture out of Kocsis’ book to compare to.

Thanks, Gary.  What do the 'ends' look like?

In this picture you can see what looks like the beginning of an articulation surface at the top and lower right

My guess is an elephantoid proximal scapula.

@Harry Pristis is the proximal the part that articulated with the humerus?

I don’t know. Here’s the bone in question next to a scapula @Harry Pristis
