We are clearing out our attic and came across this - its about 300mm long, and its very heavy and dense.
My sons have of course identified it as a dinosaur tooth........
Any help greatly received - its quite an odd thing.
it is the tooth of an elephant or possibly even a Mammoth. For a proper ident I suggest taking it to a museum that has a zoology dept and ask them.
In this image we are looking mostly at the side of the tooth, could you post images of the other surfaces. From what I can see and from your description mammoth is a distinct possibility.
Thanks both - I have had it confirmed it is indeed a mammoth tooth - that was a bit of surprise !!!
