Hello,

I found this some time ago at Fossil Beach in Virginia. Can anyone help me identify what bone this is and what animal it may belong to?

Thank you!

You haven't actually found the fossil yet. This is a concretion. There is a good chance there is a fossil inside it though.

Wait for advice from folks with more experience on how to proceed.

But can a fossil be extracted ? 

Anything better than smack it with a hammer ?

It looks porous enough to consider freeze/thaw a possibility.
