My daughter and I came across this on the shore at Big Bay, Ontario this morning. Could someone tell us what it is?

I agree - this is a cross section through an orthocone nautiloid

Thanks everyone! My daughter was very excited to find it today, along with about 20 piece of horn corral. If you've never been to Big Bay, it's a neat place.
