Is this a coprolite?

When I was young I remember being disgusted AND appalled by a boyfriend’s collection of smallish coprolites.  Eeew.  Then at the other end of life I acquired this intriguingly striated rock, I just picked it up off of the earth.  Well, it is huge and it looks like elephant poop (compare at, but it is fossilized so I wonder if I have acquired a woolly mammoth coprolite?  Woolly mammoths lived from a quarter of a million years ago, until about 10,000 years ago in North America.


I am flummoxed at how much I have changed over the course of my life, that I am delighted to possess this geological marvel.
