Tip: For this type of identification you should let the viewer see the tooth from at least two angles, or even three.

It belonged to an "Unguiate"...
Elk or deer.

2 inches, even though 1/4 of it is root, seems large for a canidid. Bears have canines too.

The long end (not darkened) is the root of the tooth, the darkened and flattened part is the tooth that would be exposed in the mouth. Since it's so flattened, it appears to be from a grazing/herbivorous mammal. Not sure, from the size.

The part on the left looks like the root. The part on the right is a well worn pre molar(?). Unless the whole thing was carved or modified somehow.
If the root is 1.5" it is a big animal. I am also guessing it is not from a herbivore.
All semi-educated guesses.
Yes, Paul is a great source.

Obviously a fang from one of the vampires known to have roamed this region in the days before St. Juniper came and ran them all out.

I guess I confused the nanny by the use of scientific terminology this morning.
The tooth is from a deer or elk.

Thanks for the information, everyone! This turned up on the beach at Coal Oil Point so I was guessing maybe harbor seal at first. I'll check with Paul and report back if he can help out.
