Went in a stream in Charleston and found a bunch of shark teeth but I found this guy and have no clue what it is! Anyone have any thoughts?

It looks like it may be a worn down bone fragment (?), not a tooth though.

Looks like most of a fish spine. I've seen a few others post similar fossils from sediments of that age (Later cenozoic marine sediments along the east coast).

If I remember correctly @Brett Breakin' Rocks posted something like it a while ago.

Man .. this really beats me up too because I gave @caldigger the images and asked that he respond to these posts when they popped up.  (thanks man, gonna miss you) *sniff* .. These are neural spines that sit just in front of the hypural vertebra, from the extinct billfish Aglyptorhynchus sp. .. common in the Chandler Bridge and Ashley Marl formations from the Oligocene.

Thank you so much! I knew it was none of some kind and now I know!

Awesome... I just found two of these last weekend and remembered seeing this thread.  I would not have guessed they were spines.
