Interesting rock whose shape resembles a bone.

The "pores" are irregular shaped and spaced and located in the wrong places for this to be a bone. Limestone, methinks.

It would be nice to keep it as an example of how limestone can erode into all sorts of shapes and appeal to our pareidolia.

If it is limestone, there might be tons of micro fossils within.

 

Your rock likely come from the Pottsville Formation. I've got some great plant fossils from the formation, but from Alabama.
