Canine Tooth?

Found on gravel bar in Brazos River. This is a first for me. I think it's a canine from a canine, but really uncertain. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Just a thought...is it a tooth, or the root of a tooth?

Yeah, I think I was in a little denial. Kept telling myself the broken side was the root and the tooth was just worn. But I think you're right Auspex.

Broken bear canine.

Thanks PF. So is the tooth broken or the root? And if the tooth is broken, what about the root indicates bear? Size? Shape? Or both?

...not sure when the last time a bear was wandering around here!

Or the last time that one wandered. Plenty old, in any case.
