Recommended Posts

I found this fossil on Wrightsville Beach North Carolina 10/19/18-- It feels like a tusk or a tooth....and it feels solid.  Any ideas on what it might be?

Looks similar to pieces of dugong rib that I have found.

For some reason, I can't seem to figure out how to post my response to you guys--- thank you so much for identifying the fossil--- I think you are right--- I googled Dungong rib and I believe that is the correct ID.  Here is a photo of the other end (that I didn't include in the first post)
