Fossils on FL beach

Recommended Posts

Two days ago, I found this fossil on the beach off of southwest Florida. Can anyone help me to ID it? Initially I thought it was a shark tooth. There are a lot of small shark teeth fossils (less than an inch heigh) on this beach. After further inspection, I am wondering if it is a fossil of a broken bone. It's about an inch.

 

Newbie here.

 

Any guesses? Thanks very much! I appreciate your help.

That is exactly what it is.

Agreed. The lack of enamel and presence of cancellous tissue says bone. Sadly, erosive forces may have conspired to making ID down to a specific animal improbable, unless someone more versed in the vert material there can spot some telltale morphological feature.
