Bone? Ammonite section? Or something else?

Recommended Posts

Can anybody identify this fragment I found at Ringstead Bay, Dorset, UK a few years back? I thought originally it was either a piece of bone or ammonite fragment, any advice would be much appreciated. The location is along the Jurassic Coast and would assume it was Jurassic in age.

Other angles would be useful. 

It looks like a couple of belemnites fossilized next to each other to me.

It has a slight curve to it.

Just a thought, two burrows side by side.

There are no features to indicate bone or belemnite.

not sure, but I would think they are fossil worm tubes.

Thank you all for your help! I did wonder if it was work tubes, it has been one of those finds that I was never sure about. Thank you again for your help!
