Found on beach Virginia, USA

Rabbit

We found this specimen today on the beach at Chincoteague Island, Virginia, USA.

It's about 25 cm long and has a spongy looking interior.

My first thought on seeing on the beach from far away was that it was a fin. Some edges are smooth suggesting that shape. But up close it's hard as a rock.

Anyone know what this is?

Thanks! Looks like I was on the right track. I had someone suggest a transverse process from a whale.
