Why is this? I found a worm burrow almost exactly like this nerd in Triassic deposits, I don't have the picture for that one, but here are some I found that are similar. It's very tricky they do look very close to bones

The texture of both the fossil and the matrix as well as the contrast between the two are what I think makes the case for body fossil at least.

I agree that both are bone, but there is not enough to tell what type of bone from a picture.
