perissodactyl astragalus

I believe this to be an astragalus (ankle bone) from an early miocene land mammal. Rhino or entelodont are my best guesses from the size of the bone and the land mammal fauna previously found in the Kirkwood formation. If anyone can provide any further insight please contact me.

UPDATE: Definitely a perissodactyl astragalus. Probably rhino or tapir.
