Animal bone

Asked April 1, 2019, 5:20 PM EDT

I found this bone in my grandparents backyard and was wondering what it is. I believe it to be a tooth because of the way it is shaped but im not 100% sure.

This looks like a small spike antler shed. Young males can form and shed antlers ranging from just a "button" to larger, more mature-looking sets.
