Fossil ID

Good morning All

 

I've found a fossil in not-such-good shape, but I'm hoping you experts can identify it.  If it is a tooth, the basal seems to have eroded completely off.  I found it on the Gulf side of Ft. Pickens, on the beach--so it was dry & exposed to the air.  We've been having southeasterly winds, which usually erode the beaches & push interesting things to the surface.  One side has as unusual pattern, which I hope comes through in the pictures.  Would love to hear your theories of what it may be.

 

Thanks!

Could it be a baby alligator head perhaps?  That would explain the interesting markings.

fish skull piece.  The pattern is not crocodilian, but fishy.
