I found this on the beach in Eastern Maine. I was wondering if anyone could identify it. I thought it might be a spinous vertebrae of a large mammal. Thank you!

I think that the top part may have been gnawed on a bit.

This thing is giving me a bison vibe.

I don't think Moose have that long of Spinous Process.

Close up pics of the vertebra body itself would be helpful (spinous process need not be included). Pic 4 it almost looks like this side of the vert is concave, but maybe it is just flattish.

Is it fossilized?
