Holes are likely the result of boring clams.

God help us all. :D 

 

It does look very much like bone to me, but I'm no expert on that so I'll wait for them to make the call.

I hunt South Central Florida, specifically the Peace River Formation.  These are rock boring clams:

The fossil most likely is dugong/manatee rib, broken but unidentifiable.
