Possible cetacean tooth!? Please help ID

Recommended Posts

Reebs

Hello!  I found this a few days ago in Parrish, FL at my fossil site.  Not quite like anything I ever found before. It is 1 3/4” (44mm) long.  It appears to have a hole running through the middle. The thinner tip looks chipped and the wider end has evidence of ridges that look like a walnut or  similar. At first I thought seed or nut, but now that I keep looking it almost looks like a cetacean tooth. Really have no clue.  Please help ID.  Thanks so much.

Interesting! Looks to be a "tilly bone" or hyperostotic fish bone:
