Could be part of a giant ground sloth claw. I know those are not that uncommon to find around here.

This is the site of a local organization that collects and studies fossils in our area. It has an expert tab, send them the pictures and they will try to get a good ID for you.

Are you sure its a tooth and not bone or stone? It looks porous to me which resembles bone. Hard to tell without holding it. The hollow concavity could possibly have been the pulp chamber / nerve. Dunno but cool find.

Nice find, Nehalem Guy! Wish I could help. It certainly could be bone.

If you look close with a magnifying glass you can see very faint remains of enamel. The piece is very dense and heavy for its size. The hollow opening I also believe to be the root canal or pulp cavity.
