What kind of tooth is this, is it even a tooth

Recommended Posts

First, I want to say I don't look into fossils/teeth all that much so this may sound kind of dumb, idk. I found this while looking for shells during my first trip to the ocean last month. It looks like a hollowed out tooth to me but it doesn't look like any shark tooth I can find on Google so I don't think it's that kind. The thought had crossed my mind and was also suggested by someone else that it might possibly be petrified wood, but I'm really not very sure on that either. I just wanted to see if anyone might be able to tell me what it actually is? I hope these images are clear enough. Sorry, my camera isn't the best.

Is not a tooth but it looks like fossilized  bone to me.

I'm thinking bone instead of tooth or wood.
