Hello everyone. I found this sticking out of a mudflat on the River Humber Estuary, UK. It seems to be a fossilised bone of something but I could be wrong. I gave it a wash and the water ran through one hole at the side and came out of the hole at the other side. Just wondered if anyone had an inkling what it could be? Thank you

Do you think this could be chert, too?

Actually, that could be a tooth.  Could you take a picture looking straight down on what would be the chewing surface - the black end of the specimen.

I'm in the flint/chert camp on the second one.

Thanks for the additional photos, ZeeZee.  After seeing these, I'm afraid I have to agree with @Fossildude19; it looks like another chert nodule.  :unsure:

Ah well! Never mind, it looks nice in my garden. Thanks for your answers. 
Do you know what this is?
