My grandparents found this fossil around 5-7 years ago
In the isle of white (exact destination is unknown by me).
Do you know what it may be?

I can show a scale picture if needed.

Sorry - it doesn't look like a fossil to me. It looks like a water-worn rock fragment that preserved the interface of two different sediments, one of which has developed septarian cracks.

I'm quite disappointed now, thinking that it was something 'exciting' for all those years.
Thank you though.

I'm not postive what it might represent.

It does resemble a plesiosaur flipper (sort of). But I hugely doubt it is!
