Found on the beach in Corolla NC

 I found this last weekend on the beach and am stumped!  It is about 1.5 to 2 inches long. Ideas?

Please post all the pictures here as links tend to go dead.

From the one picture I would go with a fish tilly bone.

Tooth from a large herbivorous mammal, me thinks.

Can we see some other angles?  I'm getting a large crab/lobster claw vibe from this one.

BTW I did not know there were so many people willing to offer juvenile, scatological, or obscene comments on Imgur!  Yet another reason to not link to outside photo hosting sites.

I'm leaning toward barnacle now...

Thank you everyone.  Yes I HATE Imgur... I didn't want to put the link but wasn't on the laptop to decrease the size of the pix I had already posted.  Sorry for the external link!  I can post/edit other pictures if needed. This is the BEST group of folks, so thank you.  And thank you Tim for adding them here.

 

So maybe mammal tooth and maybe barnacle?

I'm not so sure of either. Maybe give it some time and let a few others chime in. I am not convinced it's not something else we've seen, but we're not seeing it because of the amount of wear and vagaries of preservation.

Can We see pictures of the ends straight on rather than the oblique angle shown?

Thanks.

This is one of those that pictures don't do justice, I don't think.  I'd need to see it in person.  I vacillate from horse? to crab-ish :P
