2 Venice beach fossils. Petrified wood and odd worn shark tooth? Very curious.

After a trip to Venice Beach, Florida, I'm having trouble with identifying 2 fossils found onshore. The first is something I initially thought was a well worn micro shark tooth, but on closer inspection am having doubts. There is also a piece of what looks like petrified wood. Perhaps pine? Any help or resources would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi There,

 

The tooth is a worn Hemipristis serra and the wood is probably a really worn cetacean bone. Whale bones are most common being a former marine environment.
