Possible Vertebra?

Recommended Posts

Recently found this potential fossil in Capitola Beach, California. I’m new to fossil hunting, but the rock inside kind of resembles a potential vertebrae? Whale vertebrae are known to be found in this area, along with a variety of shells and I’m curious to know if this could be a specimen. Anyhow, if this is not a vertebrae could someone help me ID it? I put a standard American quarter on the second image to display the size.  Thanks so much for your time!

What does the other side look like? 

 

To me, this almost looks like something between a concretion and a geode.

Not a vertebra. No bone texture or bone morphology. 

This looks more like it is more geologic origin than biologic.

The other side is spherical, it appears to be a large round rock that was broken in half.
